Philips and RDH announce the 6th annual Heart to Hands award

Nov. 10, 2021
Philips and RDH magazine are proud to announce that the 6th Annual Heart to Hands award is now open for submissions.
The Philips Heart to Hands award is a celebration of the personal stories from dental hygienists about why they have such passion for their careers. Every dental hygienist has a memorable, poignant, or endearing story about a patient they’ve treated, a student they’ve met, or a personal experience they’ve had in the profession. Is there a patient whose dental or overall health you’ve had a great impact on? What happened in your life that made you fall in love with dental hygiene?
