About Us

Who We Are


The Greater St. Louis Dental Hygienists’ Association is a not-for-profit corporation and local component society of the Missouri Dental Hygienists’ Association, which is the state constituent of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association.


We exist to provide information and services to both our dental hygienist members and the general public. We are college-educated, licensed prevention experts in oral health and strive to educate and help the public in obtaining and maintaining good oral health, as well as expand consumer awareness of dental hygiene issues. This web site is one avenue with which we are achieving this goal.  It is our belief that good oral health leads to good total health and that Registered Dental Hygienists are the public’s key to receiving quality preventive oral health care!
