Please see a list of possible topics on my Services page. This list is only a start. If there is another possible service you may be interested in, let me know. I'll find out about it for you.
Also, see the lists of possible people, groups, businesses and organizations I have compiled that would benefit from any or all lecture topics listed.
Finally, I am seeking individual or corporate sponsorship for funding to make my educational lectures a possibility for those who truly need this essential dental-health information but can't afford it. If you would like to meet with me to learn more about me or my business, or to make a financial commitment to Toothology, Inc., I look forward to the opportunity to help raise "our village."
After working with people and their teeth for many years, I have come to realize that if we in the dental profession are going to stop the most common disease in the world — tooth decay (yes, it is considered a disease) — we must do something different. This is a necessity because this wholly preventable disease is still occurring at an alarming rate.
Enter Toothology, Inc.! I believe dentistry can improve oral health through better and more comprehensive education. I will use the adage of "It takes a village to raise a child." If you, your family, business or organization would like me to speak to you about oral heath, please email me. I will contact you promptly to find out what topic most interests you or is most relevant, and set a convenient date.
One month after graduating from Hanson High School in Alexandria, SD, I attended the Dental Assisting program at Lake Area Vocational-Technical Institute (LAVTI) in Huron. After my 11-month program finished, I took and passed the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) and became a Certified Dental Assistant (CDA). I practiced in general dentistry and oral surgery as a CDA in several offices in South Dakota, Colorado and Saudi Arabia. In 1988, I decided to return to school, studying at the University of South Dakota Dental Hygiene Department and earning an AA degree. Thereafter, I passed my boards to become a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH), subsequently working in South Dakota and Saudi Arabia. Currently, I am working as an RDH in Mitchell, SD.
I believe through education everyone can keep their teeth healthy throughout their life. Every smile is beautiful.
