The Spanish Association of Dental Hygienists (HIDES) was created in 1986, although it originated from an all female group of pioneers in the field which began in 1983. In 1990, to accommodate the17 regional territtorial divisions, nationally independent associations were legalized. In 1991 HIDES became a legal National Federation.
On March 14, 1991, it is established as a Professional Organization under the name of "Dental Hygienists Asturian Association" with the declaration of the following purposes, among others:
- The representation including management, defense and the promotion of academic and scientific interests and requests of its associate members.
- Promote solidarity amongst the Dental Hygienists associate members.
