"This hands-on operatory exhibit provided an excellent opportunity for participating hygienists to explore and experience the latest in state-of-the-art dental hygiene technology.” Added Ann Battrell, MSDH, ADHA executive director: “As a former clinical dental hygienist, I know first-hand how important it is for dental hygienists to feel empowered to purchase new technologies and products for their operatories so that they can deliver quality oral health care and take care of themselves ergonomically at the same time. As the role of the dental hygienist expands, their opinion on all products within the operatory is truly valued by the dental practice. The ADHA/Henry Schein Dental Dream Center was the perfect place for hygienists to get an up-close look at the technologies which can improve the operatory not only for patient care but for the hygienist who practices there day-to-day.”For more information, visit or comment on this subject, go to
