The Florida Dental Hygienists' Association (FDHA), founded in 1926, represents the more than 12,000 dental hygienists who practice in the state of Florida. FDHA provides continuing education to members and supports programs that inform other health care providers of the services offered by dental hygienists. The Florida Dental Hygiene Symposium, held each September or October, attracts hygienists from across the state who gather to hear presentations by nationally recognized experts in the dental health profession. In addition to the Symposium, component (local) seminars are offered throughout the year to keep members up-to-date with developments in the profession.
