President's Message

Kimberly Moore

ODHA President 2018

 

Here we are, another year has passed and we begin our preparation for the year to come wondering what challenges and success may lay ahead. I want to first express to you all the tremendous amount of honor and pride I feel to represent ODHA. The opportunity to serve as your President is one that I hope to fulfill with encouragement, charisma and inspiration.  My journey to this point has been paved by many of you. To my colleagues, family and friends, thank you for believing that this was possible.

 I envision this upcoming year as one that will bring prosperity and growth, like a beautiful butterfly breaking through its cocoon to begin exploring the new world that lies before it. We are in a position to really impact the dynamic of what dental health care will look like in the near future for dental hygienists in Ohio. We will be at the forefront of this conversation, by bringing better communication and understanding to those who may not realize the full potential of our capabilities. Although we all may not see eye to eye, our efforts are always to ensure the protection and integrity of the dental hygiene profession. We have a relevant voice in this debate, our backgrounds are diverse and our expertise varies, but we need to stand united as a profession and family. My goal is to make ODHA more visible by utilizing better resources of communication among our membership and to reach to those who are currently not engaged in the organization. Our membership is our driving force in this movement and the need for growth is crucial.   

I am blessed to have experienced such amazing connections with my fellow colleagues and have been inspired by your dedication and professionalism. My personal dedication to this profession has been rewarding and I am fortunate to have relationships my employers that will list a lifetime.

 I ask you all to celebrate you and your accomplishments to take pride in the fact that you are an amazing individual with ability to inspire others.
