As the only national peer-reviewed dental hygiene journal in Canada, the Canadian Journal of Dental Hygiene exists to provide dental hygienists with the most current research findings and, in particular, research that aligns with CDHA
's research agenda.
has endorsed baccalaureate level education For dental hygienists for many years.
In the presence of hardening phosphate solution, TTCP hydrolyses through a dissolution precipitation reaction giving rise to the formation of an entangled network of CDHA
crystals, which are close to the mineral component of the bone from a structural point of view.
It is well known that [alpha]-TCP could be hydrolyzed, resulting in forming a CDHA

The Council of Australian Governments established a process to develop intergovernmental agreements in Aboriginal affairs concurrent with the NAHS implementation (CDHA
The overwhelming consensus of health professionals and health agencies, including the World Health Organization, is that community water fluoridation (CWF) is a tremendously beneficial and cost effective public health intervention.(1) The Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA
) shares this opinion, which is presented in our formal position paper.(2) Nonetheless, a small but extremely vocal and motivated anti fluoridation activist group stands in opposition to CWF.(3) This interest group has drawn its own conclusion about both the effectiveness and risks of CWF based on information and factors beyond what is considered valid by the larger scientific community.

Bone minerals are essentially calcium deficient hydroxyapatite (CDHA
), which is compositionally similar to tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and structurally similar to stoichiometric hydroxyapatite (HA).
