Aug. 25, 2017
The Trapped in an Op group on Facebook teams up with PennWell's dental hygiene publications to recruit authors.
RDH magazine, RDH eVillage newsletter, and Smiles at Sea LLC are teaming up to encourage Facebook followers of Trapped in an Op to write articles for PennWell Corporation’s dental hygiene publications.

Trapped in an Op is a Facebook group of approximately 8,000 followers who are primarily dental hygienists seeking to enhance career opportunities. The group’s moderator, Elijah Desmond, RDH, BS, of Smiles at Sea, hosts similar Facebook groups that will also be collaborating with the PennWell publications of RDH magazine and RDH eVillage.

“The purpose of this is to give Facebook hygienists a voice that can be heard throughout the profession,” said Desmond. “We want to give them a platform for expressing their views about careers in dental hygiene.”

The articles will be published with “Goal Digger” as part of headlines, a salute to the Trapped in An Op Facebook groups. The Goal Digger articles will appear monthly in RDH and RDH eVillage. The other Facebook groups under the Trapped in an Op umbrella are: Dental Writers, Dentistry’s Trapped in the USA, Dentreprenuer, Dental Speakers, Dental Sales Team of the Future, Dental Consultant Mastermind, Dentistry’s Public Health, and Dentistry's Clinical Team Builder.

The articles are scheduled to begin being published in Fall 2017 and continue throughout 2018. The writer’s guidelines for RDH and RDH eVillage are available at http://www.rdhmag.com/submissions.html.
