OTTAWA, Ontario, CANADA: From a field of 755 deserving nominees from across Canada, the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA) recently revealed the winner of its third annual Dental Hygiene Superhero Competition.

In a press release, the CDHA said that this remarkable field of nominees was narrowed to 20 finalists and evaluated by a panel of judges who selected Lisa Enns of Richmond, British Columbia, as Canada’s Dental Hygiene Superhero. Two honourable mentions were also selected: Francine Leach of Halifax, Nova Scotia; and Marisa Mannarino of Hamilton, Ontario.

Championed by oral health defender CDHA and sponsored by Sensodyne, this competition recognized dental hygiene health care superheroes, the important work they accomplish, and the roles they play as primary health care providers in communities across Canada, the press release said.

“Every dental hygienist has made a difference in their communities, offices and lives of their clients,” said Leanne Huvenaars, CDHA president. “We congratulate and thank you for your exceptional service. You make our profession stand out as primary health care providers.”

Dental hygienists were nominated primarily by clients, but also by colleagues and employers, and were evaluated on their client focus, empowerment through education, accountability, leadership, integrity, respect and compassion, CDHA said.
