Member Monday Spotlight
How long have you been a member and what inspired you to join WVDHA?
8 years, being a dental hygiene educator inspired me to join
What do you love most about being a dental hygienist?
What is your most memorable patient experience?
Screening blood pressure and educating the patient on systemic issues and perio relationship. The patient went to his physician and was placed on BP meds after BP screening. I have been in many practices that do not take BP before the appointment and I wonder what they are missing.
How do you define success?
Being happy and content with your career choice after 37 years
What’s the best piece of career advice you’ve ever received?
Don’t take the bad experiences home with you, leave them in the op. You cannot please all patients all the time, but with your best self forward you can make a difference in the lives of people who appreciate what you do for their health.
Do you currently hold or have you ever held a leadership position within ADHA/WVDHA (national, state, or local)? If so, when? No
