Have you heard the news? ADHA has partnered with the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA) to bring you the Put Your Purple On! campaign! We’re joining CDHA in observing April as Oral Health Month and celebrating National Dental Hygienists Week April 6-12.

It’s time to show off your dental hygiene pride by helping us turn all of North America purple! There are a couple ways you can show off your purple pride:

Put Your Purple On! Photo Contest

1. Download our Put Your Purple On! poster

2. Incorporate the poster into your creative, purple-themed photos

3. Use the hashtag, #ADHAPurplePride, tag @YourADHA and post on Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram! (Photos must be set to public in order to enter.)

4. ADHA add your photos to their image gallery and the ADHA staff will vote on their favorites. The three winners will each receive a $100 Visa gift card, bragging rights and recognition at ADHA 2019!

The contest closes April 30 and winners will be announced May 13.

Purple Landmarks

Help us paint the United States and Canada purple! Join ADHA and CDHA by lighting municipal landmarks up in purple (the official color of dental hygiene)! Think about what you want to light up in purple in your community and use our sample letter to make your request. Get a group of colleagues together along with our Put Your Purple On! poster and snap photos featuring these landmarks.

Don’t forget to tag your photos with #ADHAPurplePride and tag @YourADHA so we can add them to our gallery! (Photos must be set to public in order to be added into the gallery)

We can’t wait to see your #ADHAPurplePride!
