Organizational Structure

ADHA is structured on three levels: National, Constituent, and Component Levels

National Level: American Dental Hygienists' Association

The national level represents the interests of all dental hygienists across the nation and provides educational and professional development programming. It consists of 12 geographic districts, each of which represents a group of constituents. Maryland is located in District III.  Our current District III trustee is Sherri Moore. The national organization receives input from the constituent and components through elected district trustees

Constituent (State) Level: Maryland Dental Hygienists' Association

As the state dental hygiene associations, the constituent organizations serve the components in their jurisdictions by informing them of national policies and programs, monitoring legislation and providing continuing education.

Component Level: Greater Baltimore, Harford Cecil, Howard County, Montgomery County, Southern Maryland, Washington Frederick, & Western Shore

Component organizations form the first line of involvement for individual members. The components implement community service programs and educational sessions and offer ideas and information about state and national policies.
