Finding Doctoral Hygienists:
IFDH provides a listing below by our member countries of dental hygienists with a doctoral degree, who are willing to share their expertise and possibly mentor persons pursuing a PhD. You can go to the listings for each country and see if there is a 'fit' for your intended research and email the person in the listing with your request. If an email is not listed, that would mean that the person is willing to share their research publication, but not necessarily offer to be a mentor.
