I am a Registered Dental Hygienist and business professional with over 30 years of experience.  I have worked with many different providers from all across the world in a number of dental care settings with a focus on quality improvement. Through this collaboration, I have published and continue to develop quality research that is useful to improve clinical care. My passion and professional goal is to continue my perpetual and unrelenting quest towards making the oral healthcare experience better. This experience has culminated in my current role as the Chief Operations Officer at Willamette Dental Group and Chair of the Scientific Advisory Committee to the Skourtes Institute.
