What is the Hygienist Shadow Program?

Shadow/Mentoring Program

“Making a Difference”

 New Jersey Society of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry (NJSPID) and the New Jersey Dental Hygiene Association (NJDHA) have partnered together to create a new and innovative program to provide educational support and mentoring for Hygienists.

 The concept of a “Shadow Program” will allow Hygienists to observe NJSPID member Periodontists perform periodontal procedures in their offices. In addition, the Hygienists will be able to establish a mentoring relationship with the Periodontists as a source of information for questions that they might have at that time or in the future.

 If you are interested in this unique mentoring program, please sign up at the NJSPID Table at the convention or you may email NJSPID with your name, email, contact number, Town and procedure(s) you would like to observe to Dr. Jane Ligums at [email protected].

 We are looking forward to working with you in the future and hope that you will avail yourself of this unique opportunity.
