RDH announces the RDH Community Connections (RCC) dental hygiene influencer program

Jan. 15, 2020
As a part of our continuing effort to elevate dental hygiene, we are pleased to announce the RDH Community Connection (RCC) program, a new way to connect with exciting opportunities happening at RDH and in the profession.

RCC identifies dental hygienists who have a mission or cause and further promote dental hygiene initiatives, whether in their own communities or across the globe, and who encourage others who want to start similar initiatives.

This program is now exclusively sponsored by Patterson Dental. “Patterson is a company that values passion and advancement and is excited for the opportunity to partner with RDH to recognize dental hygienists who are pushing boundaries, using their reach to positively affect their peers, and redefine the profession,” said Taylor Callais, MS, category manager at Patterson Dental.

Jackie Sanders, MBA, RDH, chief editor of RDH, commented, “Bringing an awareness to the passion of each of these dental hygienist is fulfilling, as the overall message from the RCC program supports the advancement of our profession and the difference we can make.”

Each month, RDH recognizes an RCC influencer for their efforts by highlighting his or her work in our channels (magazine, digital, and social). RCC influencers will also be celebrated at the 2020 RDH Under One Roof Farewell Reception, also sponsored by Patterson.
