The American Dental Hygienists' Association celebrates 100 years in 2013! Kris Potts talks to Shirley Gutkowski about the importance of membership in a professional organization and her upcoming year as president of the Texas Dental Hygienists' Association

Dental hygiene is critical to overall health, as we've been hearing in nearly all health news. However, for most people, you can't get to a dental hygienist unless you go to a dentist. Is that still a good model? Is dentistry really creating safety for the population by keeping dental hygienists an expensive layer away from people who need help keeping their teeth clean? 

Call in the week of June 17 to 21 as we tackle these topics in the centennial year of dental hygienists as a profession.
