NEFDHA has four evening meetings during the year which provide two hours of continuing education each. The four meetings are held on Thursday evenings at central  locations in Jacksonville.

The Annual Spring Seminar is our largest event of the year and is the key fund raiser for providing two FSCJ dental hygiene student scholarships.  The Swan Knowles scholarship is in honor of the first dental hygienist to be appointed to the Florida Board of Dentistry. The Gay King scholarship is in honor of a beloved FSCJ professor who taught and mentored many students. 

Three additional dental hygiene scholarships are privately funded and awarded annually: the Fetner & Hartigan Scholarship, the Summers Memorial Scholarship and the Renee Kline Scholarship.

Meeting dates and events are published via email to all licensed dental hygienists in NE Florida.  Please contact Hazel Kerr at to be added to the email list. 

We look forward to having you join us!  NEFDHA is involved in local community activities with organizations such as the Florida Dental Association, the Jacksonville Dental Society, the American Diabetes Association, the City Rescue Mission, Hubbard House, and the Children’s Home Society.
