Currently, the dental hygiene profession is represented by one dental hygienist on the New Jersey State Board of Dentistry (NJSBOD). NJDHA congratulates Linda Hecker (Central) who was appointed in 2015!
Not withstanding Linda’s service, NJDHA must stay prepared. Appointments are limited to two terms. NJDHA continues to legislatively seek additional seats for RDHs. Unforeseen challenges can bring new opportunities at any time. NJDHA must be ready to make recommendations whenever needed.
NJDHA has compiled a list of dental hygienists who are interested in appointment to the BOD. Only the New Jersey Governor can make the appointment to the BOD, but he is required to give consideration to the recommendations of NJDHA. If an opening occurs, the NJDHA Board of Trustees would consult this list, and vote on appropriate name/s to be endorsed. Those names would be submitted to the Governor's office for consideration.
Are you interested in guiding the profession into the future? Consider serving the profession through appointment to the BOD. To submit your name for consideration by NJDHA, Click Here to see the Criteria & Biodata. Complete the form and return to Central Office firstname.lastname@example.org

NJDHA Community Service Outcomes
Your volunteerism & donations are always welcome! Students - you too, can participate. Contact Central Office for more info.
For background, the U.S. Department of Defense, in partnership with the Council of State Governments (CSG) has selected ADHA to receive technical assistance with interstate licensure compact development. This was a competitive application process and we were pleased to be selected for the project! Interstate compacts are contracts between two or more states creating an agreement on a particular policy issue, in this case professional licensure, and adopting a certain standard or cooperating on regional or national matters. Other professions that were also selected include teachers, cosmetologists, massage therapists, social workers and dentists.
