Special Interest Gathering (SIG)

New this year! We are excited to share that during ADHA23 we are creating a safe and welcoming environment for like minded individuals! You will be able to network, exchange ideas, and build community around your special interests within the dental hygiene profession.

Each specified SIG will receive an assigned date and time to meet in a private meeting room at the McCormick Convention Center - West Building. The room will be set with round tables each with 10 chairs. After your designated time is up, we ask that the room be straighten up and left in order for the next group. ADHA will send out an email with each SIGs dedicated date, time and room name closer to the conference dates. All confirmed SIGs will be posted on the Annual Conference website.

If you are interested in participating and joining, please fill out the SIG registration form, by clicking on the link below. We ask that you return the completed form to ADHA via email at, no later than, Friday, May 5, 2023.
