The ADHA Institute for Oral Health Foundation (IOH) was founded to advance the dental hygiene profession and expand access to oral care through scholarships, research grants and community service grants. In collaboration with the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA), IOH helps ADHA members meet educational needs, expand the field of dental hygiene and provide oral health care and education to their communities. IOH continues its work to improve the public’s overall health by increasing awareness of and access to quality oral health care for everyone.
