“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” Nelson Mandela’s quote is what I truly live by and wholeheartedly believe in.
From the beginning of my career path in the Dental field as an volunteer dental assistant at St Elizabeth Mental hospital in Washington DC and a 6 year career working as a dental assistant in every different dental specialist. I continued my education to become a dental hygienist of which I enjoyed for 27 years and I saw that dental assistants needed more hands on training and continuing education classes to help them become a more productive and professional dental assistant so I Created Hands On Dental Assistant Training LLC which isn’t only for dental assistants it also offers ce classes to enhance and educate everyone on the dental team. I am firm believer that there is no “I” in team and that it truly is teamwork that makes the dream work. I have a vision for the community and wish to impact the lives of Dental Assistants, not only in my community this is why I am honored to have been chosen to be the 3rd District Trustee of the American Dental Assistant’s Association. I have work to do to get the District of Columbia Dental Assistant’s Association activated and I excited to get it up and going.
In a world where we are facing constant change, it is important to bring the core values of dentistry and dental assisting to the forefront. Knowledge is power and we are constantly growing and learning. It is important to always have a foundation of a love of learning and a passion for our craft.
I have always loved dentistry and I am truly honored to be appointed to this amazing position. I will do everything in my power to honor my obligations and achieve my visions for making an impact in the dental community.
