1 RDH covers from the June 1991, September 1991, and October 1992 issues.
There for the first scuffle with Saddam
2 RDH interviewed Nancy Williams, RDH, for the May 1991 issue. Williams was stationed as a dental hygienist in Dhahran and offered her reflections on the first war with Iraq.
From pointers to drugs
3 Cindy Biron, RDH, started a writing career in RDH with a column called Practice Points in the April 1991 issue. However, most readers recognize her as the author of the Pharmacology column, which she penned throughout most of the 1990s. Biron also appeared on the January 1992 cover.
4 Hu-Friedy’s Sherry Burns, RDH, developed a product called the Pen-Probe, combining a pen and a probe that could be sterilized. We always liked the ad that Hu-Friedy used to market the product.
Separating fact from fiction
5 The first six words of the first Periodontics column in December 1991 were, ”According to an old wives’ tale ...” Trisha O’Hehir, RDH, then spent the next 13 years updating readers about the facts in periodontal research. And the “quest for knowledge” on the November 1992 cover was attributed to Christine Hovliaras-Delozier, RDH, a researcher who in recent years wrote a column for RDH before becoming the editor-in-chief of ADHA’s Access.
Salesman of the week
6 A new name appeared in the staff box for the January 1991 issue. Craig Dickson was listed as the ad salesman for Midwestern accounts. Dickson is the magazine’s current publisher, a position he assumed in 2000.
