Annually, WDHA posts volunteer opportunities for hygienists to give their time and skills to the community.  Smiles for Veterans; the Veteran Stand Down, the Seattle King County Clinic at the Arena, etc.  As they become available, we post them on the website front page.  Or you may call Central Office at anytime to inquire: 425-771-3201.

The 2017 Seattle Stand Down for Veterans is in need of eight (8) hygienists for the event on December 14th and another eight (8) hygienists for December 15th.  Hygienists will be asked to provide oral health exams as well as dental health education for the veterans that pass through our clinic during those days.   We are hoping that hygienists can bring their loops and needed lighting equipment to our event, but if that is not possible, we will have LED headlamps and hand mirrors available.  The Stand Down has supplies such as gauze, tongue depressors and toothbrushes for the oral health exams and patient dental health education.   If you can volunteer one or both of those days, please contact: Dr. Peter Juang with the Seattle Stand Down by email at standdowndds@gmail.com

Washington State Smile Partners (WSSP), a successful, not for profit, school based dental hygiene program is seeking a community oriented dental hygienist for their board. WSSP is based on Bainbridge Island but rotates monthly meetings between Bainbridge and Seattle.

If you need further information, please contact Ruth Dight, or call 206-760-7643 or 206-283-9354.
