      I am Whitney Howerton, the 2012-2013 MDHA President and would like to take this opportunity to pass on valuable information about our organization. This year we will be striving to promote our mission in the community through health fairs, awareness booths at local events, and collaboration with area dentist, hygienist, and other healthcare organizations. I look forward to a varied line-up of CE courses and I hope you do to. Check the website and our Facebook page often for updates on monthly courses, events, and legislation! I am so excited to see all the familiar faces as well as many new ones!
