President’s Message

Greetings Greater Austin Dental Hygiene Chapter members and potential members,

It is with great honor that I represent the GADHA Chapter during the 2019-2020 year as your President. My fellow officers Melissa Vetter, President-Elect, Dr. Leila Liberman, Vice President, Josette Chen, Secretary, Julia Levitt, Treasurer, and Lindsay Collins, Trustee, and I aim to be available to each of you to provide mentorship and any assistance as needed.

As your Board, we will focus in two areas this year:

  1. Increasing GADHA membership
  2. Strengthening our relationships within our chapter and also within the community

There are many benefits to being a GADHA member. GADHA membership provides access to social and community events that strengthen your commitment to dental hygiene and promote success in your dental hygiene career. Other benefits include:

  • Access to continuing education seminars at a reduced rate for members
  • Access to career opportunities
  • Networking with other professionals
  • Delegate eligibility to participate in ADHA Annual Session

These benefits are vital to our profession and help encourage career growth. To stay connected and learn more about events and GADHA happenings, check out our website at, our Facebook page, and follow us on Instagram

I look forward to seeing all of you at our continuing education events, component meetings and upcoming community service opportunities. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need additional information about GADHA.

As we look forward to this year, remember that there is strength in unity. Our commitment, as a whole, makes the biggest difference to the success of our chapter.


Yvette Wagner, RDH
President, GADHA
