President’s Message



It is a pleasure to be your 2017-2018 DDHA President! As we embark on this journey together, it is my hope to bring a great deal of growth and success to DDHA and each of its members! As most of you know I am very new to this AMAZING organization, but I am so proud to be a member of the only professional organization for dental hygienist! In the past year I have become familiar with ADHA and  the benefits that come along with becoming a member. Now more than ever we are in need of new members and leaders. It is a great time to become involved with DDHA as we are working diligently on writing legislative bills, obtaining terrific CE speakers/courses, and continuing to interact with the future RDH’s of Delaware that are attending Delaware Technical Community College. Members of DDHA/ADHA if you know of any co-workers, recent graduates, or any hygienists that are just unfamiliar with our organization please reach out to them and invite them to become members. If they have any questions or would like to join DDHA they can contact Melissa Lesniczak, DDHA’s membership chair.
​I started this year with the theme “One for all and all for one”. We have already begun to incorporate this theme with our newly elected executive board officers. These individuals have stepped up into leadership roles to help DDHA become “One for all and all for one”. We are so fortunate to have such great leaders to guide us and work together to help DDHA strive for greatness. I look forward to the upcoming year and can’t wait to see what lies ahead!
