Regional Representatives Nominations

The association (Te Ohu PÅ«niho Ora o Aotearoa, NZOHA) is seeking nominees for Regional Representatives of the NZOHA Advisory Group. Advisory Groups will act as a channel between practitioners and the association ensuring all voices are heard respectfully.

We seek one member from each profession (dental therapy, oral health therapy, and dental hygiene) from each region (northern region, midland region, central region, and southern region).

The definition of four regions can be found on Page 16 of the Association Constitution. Regional representatives will work collaboratively with other professional representatives within and across the regions. Regional representatives will form profession-specific advisory groups:

  • Dental Therapy Advisory Group (DTAG)

  • Oral Health Therapy Advisory Group (OHTAG)

  • Dental Hygiene Advisory Group (DHAG)

Please refer to the NZOHA Advisory Group structure.

Regional representatives will be required to have regular meetings and communicate with the executive group. A member of the executive group may choose to attend the advisory group meeting if required.
