Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest and earned my Bachelors in Political Science with an emphasis in Public Policy at the University of Washington, I’ve long been aware of the need to build a more accessible society for those who are sick or disabled. By the time I graduated from Lake Washington Institute with my Dental Hygiene Degree and began my career in 2002, I’d begun to see firsthand the impact that lack of access to dental care can have, both on individuals and within communities. That has motivated me to engage in community outreach, focusing on underserved populations.

Around 2017, a best friend from my childhood became bedbound with cancer. Faced with the reality that many others in our community are in similar circumstances and unable to access needed care, I realized I’d found what I was meant to do. By the time I started my Mobile Dentistry in January 2018, my friend had passed away.

I have since dedicated my career to providing dental care to those who cannot leave their homes. This work is incredibly rewarding to me, as it is a much needed service that can have a real impact on a person’s quality of life.

In 2021, I was 1 out of 5 MouthWatch Teledentistry winners for the national Teledent Mobile Dentistry Accelerator Award in the US. The prize, a MouthWatch intra-oral camera, which has improved the Teledentistry process for those who are not able to leave their homes. I can show live video of a patient’s teeth to family members as well as to a remote dentist for consultation. With this, our team can offer an even higher standard of care and the access to oral care for the underserved is magnified.

In 2023, I humbly accepted the position as President of the Alliance of Dental Hygiene Practitioners “ADHP” to support other fellow hygienist in alternative practice like myself to bring more mobile dental hygiene services to our underserved communities.

Providing this care is a huge part of my life, but I also make sure to take time to enjoy being with my family, traveling, trying new restaurants, and playing the piano.

I consider it a blessing to have the opportunity to bring dentistry to your home. Thank you.
