The Manitoba Dental Hygienists Association is in search of Registered Dental Hygienists & MDHA members who would like to become a mentor within the MDHA/SDH Mentorship Program. The mentorship committee has been busy planning for NEW and creative ways to actively engage Registered Dental Hygienists and dental hygiene students to create a positive and meaningful impact on our community. 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, 2-3 events throughout the 2 years.
3) Allowing your student to observe you in private practice.
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 or the surrounding area. Keep in mind, volunteering for the Mentorship Program is a great way to achieve your PAR requirements through CDHM, and have fun doing it!
The commitment is small, but the rewards are BIG!
