As a health care professional with over 33 years of experience, my management experience has been associated with oral healthcare delivery and research management. I have served in managerial positions as a specialist in oral health care in private practice settings, as a field coordinator for research projects, and in team settings with community oral health care providers. I have been involved in both profit and not for profit settings.
My research interests are focused on health care access and improving oral health literacy, specifically concerning oral/systemic link. My expertise is in maximizing patient centered care via tailored provider-patient communication. I also promote collaboration and improved interdisciplinary working relationships between dental and medical professionals concerning health prevention education. In addition to oral health, I have focused on service learning as an academic activity as a means of developing students' practical skills, increased sensitivity to moral issues, improved critical thinking, and increased motivation (both academically and professionally), increased social responsibility, and increased corporate citizenship.
