Who we are

The Dental Hygiene Alumni Chapter (DHAC) represents all graduates from the University of Alberta Dental Hygiene Program. Upon graduation, dental hygiene alumni automatically become members of the DHAC.

Our mission is to facilitate relationships between alumni, students, faculty members and partners, and act as ambassadors for the UAlberta alumni.

The DHAC hosts events where alumni members can gather, network, and engage with one another and their alma mater. We also strive to create an engaged community of oral health professionals through mentorship, networking, resources and professional development opportunities. Additionally, we provide mentorship opportunities for students and aim to enrich the student experience.

What we do

The DHAC hosts several events and activities per year, including:

  • Social activities for alumni
  • Continuing education courses for alumni
  • Mentorship and networking events
  • Welcoming graduates to our alumni community
  • Celebrating and supporting our students
