When looking for professional growth and career development, there is no one better to learn from than those who have traveled the road before you. Once you find that platform and those connections, you will never feel alone on your journey.
RDH magazine is proud to announce the second RDH Evolution. This unique two-day virtual program will guide you to the next level of your career. The influential dental hygienists you see in the pages of RDH magazine and at the RDH Under One Roof conference will share with you how they carved out reinvigorating paths for themselves in the dental profession, what they learned along the way, and how you can start your journey.
Whether you are dealing with burnout, wanting to diversify your income, or gain clarity in your career path, you will find your answers here. If you are looking for answers on rejuvenating your passion in the operatory while providing quality care or looking to spread your wings into consulting, speaking, corporate sales, or starting your own business, you will leave RDH Evolution knowing your next steps.
Presentations will be followed by open discussion and Q&A segments to support your journey. In addition to a plethora of learning, the corporate sponsors will have the opportunity to meet each attendee and share how the dental hygienist is a key component in their company’s growth and development. You will meet and work with the key influencers in our profession and the corporate sponsors who value your knowledge.
Those who attended the first RDH Evolution in 2018 left with newfound ambition and direction. Today, you will find several of them writing for RDH, others are speaking at the podium, and a few are now working in the corporate realm of dentistry.
Two attendees from RDH Evolution 2018 provided the following testimonials:
“Going to RDH Evolution opened my eyes to how many other hygienists felt the same way about their career. We enjoyed our chosen field but were looking to expand our day-to-day jobs and make more of an impact on others’ lives. After much consideration of the different routes of hygiene, I chose to continue my education in a local EFDA (expanded function dental auxiliary) program.”—Lucia Ianiro, RDH, EFDA
“Invest in yourself and your professional career by being a part of RDH Evolution! Be proactive. Take a step out of your comfort zone. Learn! This event is perfect for any RDH wanting to branch out and network with other RDHs about all aspects of our profession. I highly recommend participating. I enjoyed every aspect of my participation.”—Mary Jensen, MS, RDH
This year, topics of discussion will be led by Jasmin Haley, Josalyn Sewell, Amber Auger, Melissa Turner, Sonja Dunbar, and Jamie Dooley.
