Posted January 06, 2019 03:53:18A lot of dentists say they can’t keep their jobs if they don’t give patients a high-quality oral health care experience.
This is one of the reasons I have been passionate about dentistry since I was a kid.
I started dental-o-meter when I was in high school, and I am a lifelong believer in helping people stay healthy.
I know that dental-care is not just about filling the mouth, but it is also about the way we live, the things we do and the relationships we have.
I believe we have a moral obligation to help people stay healthier.
In 2016, I was honored to receive the first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) for my work in community dental care.
I’ve been a member of NCCAM since 2012 and have been recognized for my advocacy for patient-centered dental care in the dental profession.
I’ve also been working to change the dental community by educating parents, dentists, dental hygienists and dentists about the importance of oral health.
I have also worked with the National Association of Dental Hygienist Advisors (NADA) to support them in their fight against overprescribing and poor oral health outcomes.
My dental-health practice is a part of NADA’s dental-medicine program, which is a collaboration with other health organizations across the country.
As a dental hygmienist, I strive to educate patients about the risks of oral disease and to help them make the right decisions about their health and well-being.
NADA is the only dental-service provider in the United States that is committed to patient-focused, preventive care.
