The Manitoba Dental Hygienists Association is in search of Registered Dental Hygienists who would like to become a mentor within the MDHA/SDH Mentorship Program.
This program plays a vital role in a Dental Hygiene student’s transition from student to private practice. As a mentor, you will have a lasting impact on your mentee’s educational experience and future in Dental Hygiene.

Your role as a Dental Hygiene mentor would include:
1) A two year commitment (ie. you would remain with your student for the duration of their 2 years in the School of Dental Hygiene)
2) Attend an MDHA sponsored evening per term, total of 4 events throughout the 2 years.
3) In first year, your student would observe you in practice twice.
4) In second year, your student would observe you in practice once.
5) Be an available resource for your student if they have questions, concerns, or require support throughout their 2 year education.

We would love to have you as part of our Mentorship Program. We invite Registered Dental Hygienists from all walks of the profession – newer grads, established DH’s, specialty practice DH’s, etc. All we ask is that mentors have at least one year of experience in the profession and practice within Winnipeg, MB. Keep in mind, volunteering for the Mentorship Program is a great way to tackle some of your PAR credits, and have fun doing it!

The commitment is small, but the rewards are BIG!

Interested? Have questions? Contact us by phone at (204)981-7327 or email at mentorship@mdha.ca ASAP as classes start very soon.

We are excited to hear from you!

MDHA Mentorship Committee,
Kaleigh Warden, Erin Melendez, Kathy Yerex, and Shauna MacGregor

On Sunday, October 2nd, 2016 the Manitoba Dental Hygienists Association will once again be joining tens of thousands of Canadians to participate in the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. 

In accordance with the new policy developped by the MDHA Board of Directors, participation on MDHA Team Brush for the Cure is open only to current MDHA members and their non-dental hygienist family members and friends.  Certificates for a PAR will be sent only to MDHA members who participate on run day, in addition a list of MDHA member participants will be forwarded to the CDHM who will determine eligibility for a PAR.

Lets see if Team MDHA Brush for the Cure can raise more money than we did last year!  Make a post on Facebook with the link to your Personal Run for the Cure page, Tweet about it, send out emails, encourage the people you work with to support you, be creative and lets see the donations come pouring in!

Lets raise a lot of money, have a lot of fun, and do what we can to help beat this awful disease!
