Did you know that Dr. Fones established the 1st Dental Hygiene Program in 1913?
The first class of graduating Dental hygienists consisted of 27 students in November 1914.
The 1st Licensed Dental Hygienist was Irene Newman in 1917.
In September 1923 the American Dental Hygienist Association was organized.
In 1952 all states license Dental Hygienists.
Just wanted to share a little history on the foundation of the dental hygiene profession. Always remember make your appointment to see your Registered Dental Hygienist for your preventive care check up twice a year.
