If you're a H.I.P.P., then attend a Focus Group

May 27, 2005
Focus groups hosted by dental manufacturers at RDH UOR allow attendees to voice an opinion.

A H.I.P.P. is a Hygienist with Influence and Purchasing Power. In the past, we have all heard many conversations and read e-mails complaining that dental manufacturers do not value what hygienists have to say about product innovations and enhancements.

Here's your chance to make a difference and have your voice be heard. Sign up to attend one of the many Focus Groups hosted during RDH Under One Roof conference this summer in Chicago. Hygiene-friendly companies such as Hu-Friedy, Philips Oral HealthCare, Biolase, Dentsply and Discus are sponsoring these sessions.

Focus groups are the opportunity for practicing hygienists to sit down in a warm and welcoming environment to interact with representatives from corporations who support, ask, and listen to hygienists. What a winning combination. The market place is asking for your opinion - let them hear you.


If you are an Under One Roof alumnus, you know the hands-on and small group workshops are one of the most popular features. Due to the high demand, we have just added a few more seats in many of the popular courses. These courses will fill up quickly once again. So if you haven't made any reservations yet for any of these courses, you may want to do so soon.
