"Be yourself, everyone else is taken" Oscar Wilde
Shy? Yes! It took a lot of courage to publish this site. My goal is to share information with the dental hygiene community in hopes to inspire and help you grow as a healthcare professional.
While growing up in Texas, I made the decision to begin a career in the dental field. I was afforded the opportunity to start as a dental assistant at a small private practice, where I received on-the-job training. This is where my journey in the dental field started which led to a passion for growing in the healthcare field.
After marriage, several moves, and having two kids, I felt the need to continue my education in the profession by attending dental hygiene school, where I graduated with honors.
With over 25 combined years of dental experience as a dental assistant and hygienist, I have worked in a psychiatric hospital, private and corporate practices including general, cosmetic, and periodontal practices.
I am a Registered Dental Hygienist, Certified Dental Assistant, the Director of Continuing Education for “A Tale of Two Hygienists” podcast, a former research assistant for “Connect the Dents”, currently Public Relations Chair for AADH, Founding Member for RDHConnect, and blogger with an aspiration to publish a book.
