DHPro was founded to specifically reflect what dental hygienists wanted from a membership site. As part of Lairimar Corporation, DHPro was established in May 2010, by Dr. Susan Ziebarth and Dr. Ron Shafer.
We’ve been serving dental hygienists across Canada since 2000, and what we often heard through our work, was that when it came to finding a professional membership site and securing reasonably priced professional liability insurance, there weren’t that many options open to you.
As a result you may have found yourself renewing your membership and policy and paying fees for services you weren’t even sure you needed or wanted. Have you noticed how the supply of dental hygienists has increased, job availability has become more scarce, yet your professional membership fees have not declined in the same manner?
So we launched DHPro to not only give you more choice, but to give you more of the things you want at an affordable rate.
Because of the industry relationships we’ve built up over the years, we’ve been able to negotiate fantastic discounts for running the site. That’s why for only $62 membership, you get:
- Heavily discounted professional liability insurance ($64)
- Current industry news and discussions
- Job and employment information
- Supportive community environment for members
- Ongoing professional learning from your home or office
Because we decided to focus on these most popular areas of your membership, we’ve been able to strip down the cost to one flat fee, no matter where you live or practice. What’s more, once you’re on the inside, no matter how many added bonuses and benefits we introduce throughout the year, you’re not going to pay a penny more above your annual fee.
There’ll be no additional payments for webinars or information once you’ve signed up. Everything that we introduce within DHPro is included in the cost of your annual membership.
We’re constantly adding more information, more resources and more valuable content because it’s no secret that we want to grow DHPro.
One other thing you might notice about your membership with us is that we’re very friendly and personable. Being a smaller company, we’re able to listen and respond quickly to any feedback from members.
In 2011 we welcomed all DHPO (The Dental Hygienists Professionals of Ontario) as members.
Above all else, we’re passionate about helping dental hygienists, and we care about what matters to you.
We look forward to getting to know you and seeing how we can help you!
