2020-21 NDHA President

Heather Hessheimer, NDHA President




Welcome to the Nebraska Dental Hygienists’ Association (NDHA) website! The NDHA is a constituent of our national American Dental Hygienists’ Association and consists of five local components. The local components are a great connection to members across our state, so be sure to attend local meetings whenever you can. There is a map of the components on our Component quick link which also lists our leaders for the area. Let us know if we can help you connect to your component leaders!

Our home page has numerous icons you can click for quick links to other areas of our website. Also note the Current News links to COVID-19 Updates, Recent Newsletters, and information on our constantly changing Rules and Regulations. We encourage you to stay current with what is going on in our state for dental hygienists. Reading our quarterly newsletters is a great place to start. The best way to have a voice is to get involved by being a member, attending events/meetings, and especially by volunteering as a leader. We only have a voice if we come to the table and we need all of you to join us in membership to be effective.

As you navigate the website, you will see a list of our elected officers, the volunteers who serve as your Executive Board. Our contact information is there and we encourage you to reach out if we can be of assistance. If you have trouble finding what you are looking for, please contact myself or our Executive Director, John Roberts, and we will assist you with your needs.

Thanks to our members and leaders for helping NDHA work toward our mission and vision for the state of Nebraska! We hope this next year allows us to help you Reach for Your Stars. I appreciate the opportunity to serve you as President for the 2020-2021 year.
