Welcome to the Dental Hygienists Association of Australia Symposium 2022

The National Symposium will be held 2nd-4th June 2022, hosted on Larrakia Country, Darwin NT.

Come to celebrate with friends and colleagues. Our first major face to face event in two years!

COVID-19 has challenged and changed us all, in ways we couldn’t conceive, both personally and professionally.

Our theme encompasses the challenges of looking at things differently and innovatively, embracing independent and full scope of practice.

We have connected with Larrakia Nation and collaborated to find their word which will embrace our theme. Larrakia Nation have generously given permission to use - YING GWOYARRA - meaning New Way.

Our National Chair for Professional Development, Ms Jacquie Biggar, has created an exciting program around Ying Gwoyarra.

The Territory holds wonderful memories for me as I place I grew up and I can’t wait to create amazing new ones with you all, at Symposium 2022.

Looking forward to your company next year.
