High Desert Dental Hygienists' Association (HDDHA) is the largest component in NM, serving the counties of Bernalillo, Cibola, Valencia, and Torrence.

Sandoval County Hygienists: New Mexico hygienists can choose which component they want to join. Therefore, Rio Rancho hygienists are welcome to attend HDDHA meetings and events. We encourage and value your presence and feedback.

Annually, HDDHA co-sponsors Special Olympics, SmileFest, and Mission of Mercy by donating dental supplies and providing financial aide. Donations and ADHA membership help ensure the continued support of these organizations by HDDHA.

Payment options for HDDHA CEUs

Personal checks are not accepted. However, multiple payment options are available for both regular meetings as well as Albuquerque Day, HDDHA's annual fund raiser held each spring.

Cash, money orders, cashier's checks and credit cards will be accepted onsite at all HDDHA CEUs. Money orders and cashier's checks should be made out to "HDDHA."

Albuquerque Day will have the added advantage of offering early online payments through PayPal. You do not need to have a PayPal account to utilize PayPal. PayPal will be available on the Events Page in advance of Albuquerque Day up to a few days before the event. Early snail mail payments can be made by cashier's check or money order and should be made out to "HDDHA" and mailed to the address listed on the Events Page under Albuquerque Day.
