The organization is tripartite; meaning, to be a member of SCDHA (local component), you must also join ADHA (National Association) and ODHA (State Association). Joining is easy and completely done online. You may join directly through ADHA or contact our component membership chair if you need more information.
SCDHA is pleased to offer an alternative method of dues payment at no additional cost to its membership. The option is to pay through the SCDHA Pre-paid Installment Program from September until December, at which time, dues will be processed. This method can work for current members who wish to renew and also provides an outstanding way for a new member to join or reinstate their expired membership. For more information about the SCDHA Pre-paid Installment Program, please contact our treasurer, Sandy Brado.
ADHA also has dues payment options. Please check out the ADHA website for more information: http://www.adha.org/payment-options
The Student American Dental Hygienists' Association (SADHA) is the first link to the dental hygiene profession for dental hygiene students. Membership in SADHA joins the individual student with other students nationwide who are dedicated to building the ethical and educational future of their new profession. The Stark Collaborative Dental Hygienists’ Association strongly supports the membership of our student chapter in residence at Stark State College.
