Location: The Center For People In Need in Lincoln, NE.   

3901 N. 27th St. #1,  Lincoln, NE  68521.

All patients will be pre-screened and an appointment time (morning or afternoon) will be scheduled on November 7 or 8, 2014.   All dental care will be rendered at no fee, and the patient will be counseled on where to find an affordable dental home to prevent further dental problems.  We plan on caring for 500 to 600 needy patients.  We cannot take walk-ins, so no advertising will be done.   Patients will be assessed by dentists at Lincoln’s Clinic With a Heart, People’s City Mission Dental Clinic, and The Center For People In Need  and given an appointment time.  We will begin screening the patients to be treated in September of this year.

We plan on running the clinic each day from 8:00 until 5:00.  Patients will be asked to arrive at 7:00 a.m. for the morning session and 12:00 for the afternoon session.  Health histories will already be completed, radiographs (if needed) will be taken, BP, HR,  and etc. will also be assessed.  There will be no waiting in line all night; everything is indoors at The Center For People In Need.

I need to know if you are interested in participating again this year.   I will be coordinating the volunteers.  Please let me know of your interest by sending me an email at the following address:

neminimom2014@gmail.com

Let me know of the day(s) you can help out.  I will keep a data base of all the volunteers for the Mini-MOM 2014 and communicate accordingly.   Thanks so much, everyone.  I look forward to another fun and meaningful event for the patients and volunteers alike.

NDHA Member…

Your Association needs your help!

You know how important it is that dental hygienists be representing in the legislature, but you are probably unsure how you could help. At a recent Executive board meeting, our lobbyist Ron Jensen, of Jensen Rogert Associates, explained the importance of making contact with legislative candidates BEFORE they take office. Ron has had many years of experience in Nebraska’s State Government and explained the process of how officials respond to organizations’ requests, emails, mail, etc. They go through and barely glance through items received from people they had never had contact with and they spend vital time on items from people that they have had previous communication with. As you can see, having a relationship established is crucial. Become a Contact Hygienist! (more…)

President’s Welcome

Welcome fellow dental hygienists!! My name is Julie Niles, and I am your 2014-2015 NDHA President. Thank you for checking-out the NDHA website. We are a member service association, and it is our mission to help our members get information on continuing education; licensing; and jobs in traditional, educational, or public health care areas. We provide information on going back to school, offer scholarships, and provide links to state laws that affect our profession and Board Review Courses.

At NDHA we pride ourselves in being progressive in meeting the needs of our members. We rely on you to guide us in the path that dental hygiene needs to take in order to provide optimal professional oral health to the people of Nebraska.

I encourage all hygienists to regularly use this website, become members of NDHA, keep us informed about what is happening in your community as it relates to our profession, and letting us know if you have any questions. I feel that membership in NDHA is not only a privilege, but is also an opportunity to participate in the association so as to ensure its success. Just as we need to protect our bodies by eating well and exercising, we need to protect our profession and the communities we serve by investing in our continuing education and professionally supporting each other.

This brings me to my theme for my presidential year which is “Together Towards Tomorrow!” It is only by working together with each other and dentistry as a whole that we can provide services that will benefit everyone.

Thank you for visiting this site and I hope you will place it in your ‘favorites’ to access easily!

Sincerely,
Julie Niles
