The Dental Hygiene Code of Ethics
In my practice as a dental hygienist, I affirm my personal and professional commitment to improve the oral health of the public, to advance the art and science of dental hygiene, and to promote high standards of quality care. I pledge continually to improve my professional knowledge and skills, to render a full measure of service to each patient entrusted to my care, and to uphold the highest
standards of professional competence and personal conduct in the interest of the dental hygiene profession and the public it serves.

We are continuing to support the Space Coast Volunteers in Medicine Dental Clinic. As you know, last year we donated a ultrasonic unit. This year, we are donating a hand piece. They are also in great need of proxy brushes, fluoride varnish, floss, 2x2's, paper towels, toilet paper, and adult toothbrushes. You can contact Jennifer Hosburgh or bring some to the next meeting if you can donate.
They are in need of many different things, especially RDHs available to volunteer some time in the clinic. We will be collecting the following items at every meeting so please scour your offices and ask your colleagues to donate these items:
Cavitron Unit with inserts
