History Of Component 10


The Northwest Virginia Dental Hygienists’ Association was formed in 1977.  Charter members included Diane Collis, Jan (Wahl) Miller, Donna Diamond, Jane Boyd and Betsy Conlon.  We are a small but very active component and represent dental hygienists in the counties of Clarke, Frederick, Page, Shenandoah,  Warren and Rockingham as well as the cities of Winchester and Harrisonburg.  We have had as few as six members and as many as forty members and we have always looked to new members for new experiences and ideas for development of the component.

Dental hygienists are very active participants in community events. We have taken part in the Winchester Community Wellness Festival, the Thomas Harrison Middle School Dental Health Fair in Harrisonburg, VA, Community Health and Wellness Fair for Shenandoah County, in-service education for nursing home employees, annual toothbrush drives for a selected area abused women’s shelter, contribution to Share the Cheer Foundation, provide dental hygiene services for the (formerly Free Medical Clinic) Dental Clinic of the Northern Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, VA, VDHA Rally Day at the capital in Richmond, VA as well as our individual efforts to schools and other organizations for dental health education.
