MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Dental Hygienists' Association and Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., has announced the honorees of the inaugural HYGIENIST HERO(TM) Recognition Program designed to salute dental hygienists' outstanding commitment to promote oral hygiene in their local communities. The honorees were recognized at the opening ceremonies of the American Dental Hygienists' Association Annual Session June 18-25 in Albuquerque, N.M.

To be considered for the HYGIENIST HERO(TM) Recognition Program, dental hygienists submitted essays describing inspirational activities they have developed and led to enhance oral healthcare in their communities. Stories ranged from those who were motivated by the loss of a sick nephew who was uninsured, to one registered dental hygienist who set up a clinic to treat low income patients with limited or no insurance. Another honoree taught herself sign language to communicate proper oral care techniques to a local school for the deaf. All honorees' activities were self-funded.

This program is a joint partnership between American Dental Hygienists' Association and Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc.

"From improving access to professional oral care to educating on proper home oral care techniques in creative, awe-inspiring ways, these hygienists are truly helping to improve the oral health of America one mouth at a time," said ADHA President Jean Connor, RDH.

"Dental hygienists are the unsung heroes of oral care and they deserve recognition for playing a critical role in the oral health and, ultimately, the overall health of countless of Americans inside and outside the dental office," said Ellen Guritzky RDH,BS, Product Director, Johnson & Johnson Healthcare Products Division of McNEIL-P
