All Oral Health professionals play an important role in the daily oral hygiene of people throughout society. Today is World Dental Hygienist Day, in celebration of this professional support group that is essential to dentists and periodontists alike, and that is one of the keys for Oral Health maintenance.
History of Dental Hygienists
The profession began in the United States in 1913 with Dr. Fones. Since then, every June 17 is celebrated to commemorate the birth of this vital figure in the dental practice. This specialty has evolved and changed over time, incorporating diverse functions to become the profession that it is now.
The DENTAID team, always looking to assist hygienists in their daily work, offers the necessary tools and training courses through Aula DENTAID for hygienists to broaden and update their knowledge in Oral Health.
From Perio·Expertise, we join in the celebration by recognising the role of dental hygienists in the prevention, care and treatment of periodontal disease. Happy Hygienist Day!
