I am honored to be a Certified Dental Health Aide Therapist for my community and surrounding villages. Access to care in Alaska is a great need, to be able to provide dental service to help people whether it’s helping with pain or fixing their smiles is a great feeling, as for prevention I set up at schools to provide prevention and education serving approximately 300 school aged children between 3 villages.
Prior to DENTEX I worked as a dental assistant for over a year. I traveled to regional villages and learned that I have the endurance to handle stressful positions and stamina to get the job done. I like to believe it’s my family—my roots—that have given me the background and tools that I need to be successful as a Dental Health Aide Therapist.
