“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 at Howard University to become a dental hygienist of which I enjoyed for 27 years doing my career as a dental hygienist 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 .I created Hands On Dental Assistant Training 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 by teaching them to become a professional educated dental assistant. I am honored to have been served as the 3rd District Trustee of the American Dental Assistant’s Association and the Vice President of the Maryland Dental Hygienists Association. I also reactivated the District of Columbia Dental Assistant’s Association.
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 in your dental career.
