The only association exclusive to Independent Registered Dental Hygienists that own a business in Ontario

About us
The DHPO is a not-for-profit organization, founded by volunteer Registered Dental Hygienists supporting RDH's that are venturing into the world of independent practice. We do this through advocacy and networking opportunities.
Volunteering as a Board Member offers is a great way to give back to the profession and be part of the direction of Dental Hygiene. 
2021 Conference
Due to COVID-19 restrictions we have postponed our March conference to September 24-25 2021.

We understand the value that independent's gain from meeting in person and we are hopeful that the new date will accommodate a small gathering.
A day filled with learning and networking. Speakers curated to the interests of an IRDH, as well as plenty of time to meet with vendors and collaborate with colleagues. 
Join us
The DHPO understands that being an IRDH can be a lonely road. The benefits of collaborating with colleagues that are on the same path is priceless. 
A membership with the DHPO offers many benefits including:
  • Unlimited networking with other IRDHs
  • Private Facebook group to give and receive advice
  • Discounts with participating sponsors
  • And more....
