Bluegrass District Dental Hygienists' Association
Professional Pride in Kentucky's Bluegrass District

Hello friends!  My name is Mary Jones and I want to introduce myself as the incoming President of Bluegrass District Dental Hygienists’ Association for the 2013-2014 year.  Many of you I know already, but many I don't.  I would love to meet you this year at our upcoming CE courses and activities.

I am a 1998 graduate of LCC Dental Hygiene program.  After graduation, I moved to Pikeville and was active in the Kentucky Mountain component.  I moved to West Virginia for about 5 years after that, and then moved back to KY in 2007.  I have worked in both Richmond and Irvine part time, and then in 2008 started working part time at BCTC after completing my Bachelor of Science degree in Health Education at EKU.  I joined the faculty full time in 2010.  I completed a Master of Public Health at EKU in May 2013.  I continue to do fill in work around the area in the summer.  I also enjoy volunteering at Mission Lexington.  I am married to Rodney and have 2 daughters, ages 17 and 10.
The BGDDHA Board has been meeting this summer to plan our upcoming CE courses for the year.  If you are interested in serving on the Board or on a committee, please let me know!   We would love to have some more members to help serve with us.  All meetings are open to any registered dental hygienists, member or not!  We would love to have you.

Our meetings this year will be at The Signature Club of Lansdowne in Lexington.  We hope this new venue will make it more convenient and affordable for hygienists in the area to attend.  We will also be posting details on our website and Facebook sites as we finalize details.

 I'm looking forward to getting to know you better this coming year!



Mary W. Jones, RDH
