Dear MDHA Members,

The early bird registration deadline for the MDA Convention, which will be held January 27th and 28th, 2017, is December 15th, only two weeks away!  It sounds like it is going to be another great event with close to 100 exhibitors participating in the trade show.  For a full list of exhibitors please visit the MDA website,https://www.manitobadentist.ca/registrations/tradeshow.cfm.

The MDHA will be hosting a Mix and Mingle networking event from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. on January 27th, which is designed to give MDHA members the opportunity to connect with colleagues from around the province, as well as with the MDHA Board of Directors and staff.   Immediately following the networking event, at 10 a.m., Dr. Wenche Borgnakke will be presenting on Oral Systemic and Periodontics and Diabetes.  To view the full list of presenters, please click on this link,https://www.manitobadentist.ca/registrations/speakers.cfm.

All MDHA members are welcome to attend our Mix and Mingle event, however, you must be registered for the full convention in order to visit the trade show and attend the lectures.  If you do not have a registered attendee badge, you will not be eligible to enter the trade show, nor attend any of the presentations, including Dr. Borgnakke’s.

To take advantage of the special MDHA member pricing and the early bird registration fee of $125, please register on or before December 15th.   After December 15th, the price increases to $150 and if you register at the door the day of the convention the fee will be $175.00.

Please note that the MDHA will not be serving breakfast during the networking session.  Please visit the trade show where a continental style breakfast will be served.  Feel free to bring your coffee and a muffin with you to the MDHA Mix and Mingle event.  Remember that you must be registered for the convention to enter the trade show and presentations.

Don’t delay, register for the convention today by clicking on this link,https://www.manitobadentist.ca/registrations/

Posted by on Aug 16, 2016 in community, PAR, volunteer | 0 comments


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!
