Still University- Missouri School of Dentistry and Oral Health. She holds a grant funded position as the Dental Hygiene Outreach Coordinator providing educational programs to adults 60 and older. She screens older adults and if they meet the financial qualifications, they receive much needed dental treatment at the dental clinic. Many have an income of $1,000 or less per month. It is very rewarding for her to know these individuals receive much needed dental treatment. She also teaches periodontal instrumentation on the clinic floor 4 hours a week to the dental students.
