We, at SCDHA our doing our best to keep everyone updated with the newest and latest information regarding COVID-19, the coronavirus. We will be updating this page, so check back regularly. We have attached links, documents, and unemployment information as well.

It’s important to note that as a national professional association, ADHA does not have the authority to mandate dental office closures. We are actively raising our collective professional concerns with federal agencies as they consider the best course of action to maintain the health and safety of dental hygienists and their patients, while addressing critical oral health needs.
