We have some of the best members here in Utah that are part of the UDHA. These dedicated members who care for their families, communities, and patients are amazing people to be surrounded by and learn from each day. Meghan Ray is no different. She is a hardworking RDH in Utah County who loves interacting with people all day, listening to their questions, and helping their overall and oral health. Meghan is a full time dental hygienist in private practice in American Fork.

UDHA: Why do you love being a dental hygienist?

M: I love being a hygienist because everyday is full of new experiences with patients. I love getting to know them better while still applying my knowledge to know how to bette their oral health. Everyday I am helping my patients to make or set goals for how to improve their home health care.

UDHA: Why are you a member of the UDHA?

M: After graduating from school I knew that I wanted to stay a member of the hygiene association because I wanted to be involved in my careers association. This is our voice. This is how we guarantee that for years to come we have a say. I also felt like for me by being a member was my push to always continue to stay up on what’s going on whether it’s locally or cross country with hygiene.

The ADHA Annual Session 2021 is set to take place in person! This year, it is being held right in our own backyard of Phoenix, Arizona from June 18- June 20. This is always an educational and fun event where we as dental hygienists can learn the latest technologies, see the newest products, and connect with other dental hygienists from all over the country.
