Outstanding Partner Award

The Outstanding Partner of the Year Award was established in 2016 in order to recognize corporate and local partners who help advance ODHA and the profession of dental hygiene as a whole. ODHA has valuable community partners who help foster the ODHA Mission of being committed to providing advocacy, professional development and networking opportunities for dental hygienists and the dental hygiene profession.

Over the years our partnerships have been with dental suppliers who sponsor events, non-profits we collaborate with, and other industry organizations or individuals who support advocacy and oral health initiatives.

This award is presented annually at the Oregon Dental Hygiene Conference. Nominations should be received by October 16, 2023. Self-nominations are encouraged.
