In partnership with the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA), the blog, The Dental Geek, recently launched a campaign dedicated to generating funds for the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health (IOH).

The campaign, titled #TheDentalGeekSelfie, is aimed at bringing the dental community together to give back to the dental hygiene profession.The Dental Geekis asking dental professionals to submit a group selfie. For every group selfie submitted from a dental professional team – whether it’s a dental office, dental marketing team, or dental lab, The Dental Geek will donate one dollar to the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health (IOH).

The Institute for Oral Health’s mission is to advance the profession of dental hygiene through educational scholarships, research grants, and community service grants to hygienists throughout the country.

In addition to the donation to the ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health, The Dental Geek will choose one participating dental office at random and provide them with a free professional photography session. The high-quality photography session of the practice and its employees offers a great marketing tool for website and social media development, as well as for patient brochures.
