Welcome to NZDHA
The New Zealand Dental Hygienists Association is the professional association for Dental Hygienists in New Zealand. Dental Hygienists are oral healthy preventative practitioners. All practicing Hygienists in NZ are registered with the Dental Council of NZ and work with Dentists in private practice. Our association was formed in 1993 to unite Hygienists around the country. We have branches across NZ where members can regularly attend meetings to enhance their professional knowledge. Every year we hold an annual conference. The role of the Dental Hygienist is to help educate and promote healthy oral behaviours in patients as well as the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease.
The NZDHA provides a significant amount of information and support for its members. If you would like to register to be a member of our association simply click on the "Join Us" section of our website where you will find all the information you require.
