What is the award?

Dental hygienists bring humanity and caring to the profession of dentistry. Every RDH has a story to tell about a touching or memorable experience with a patient, with community involvement, or about providing dental hygiene education.  

Presented by Philips and RDH magazine, the Heart to Hands award celebrates the exceptional and the everyday acts of caring by dental hygienists. 

How do I enter the contest?

Submit a one-minute video (using your phone or laptop is OK!) about one of the following topics: how you have provided excellent patient care or gone above and beyond in caring for patients, how you are involved with your community, or how you provide dental hygiene education. 

The deadline for submissions is December 14th, 2017.

What is the prize?

Three winners will receive (1) tuition to RDH Under One Roof in August 2018, (2) gifts from Philips, (3) air travel and two nights' accommodation at the June 2018 ADHA annual session, (4) an invitation to appear on the April 2018 cover of RDH magazine and in a feature article, and (5) a commemorative reception in their honor and a crystal recognition award at the June 2018 ADHA annual session.

Who is eligible to enter the contest?
