Lets get digital - Social Media for the Dental Hygienist/OHT 

With AHPRA advertising complaints on the rise, find out the do’s and dont’s of social media as a registered health practitioner. We will delve into where the businesses we work for and ourselves as individuals don’t hit the mark leaving ourselves open to complaints. More importantly we will look at how we can use social media to our advantage and give ourselves the professional edge in this ever changing landscape.
