I am three quarters Yupik Eskimo, and my current home is in Atmautluak, alongside the Johnson River. I see myself as a role model for kids in this small community, letting them know there is more to life after graduating high school. I am becoming a DHAT so I can help my community live in a healthier environment without having to travel out of their home village in order to receive dental care. I want to help Alaskans all over keep their healthy teeth in the future to come.

“Before the DHAT clinic Bethel dental services were chaotic. It was hard to get an appointment. Typically the waiting time was so long you thought to go somewhere else. Here, it is unbelievably simple. The Alaska native DHATs make the experience more comfortable. I was skeptical at first because I know the DHATs are just learning, but they ask a lot of questions, tell you step-by-step what’s going on, and tell you what the plan is. I am very confident in the DHAT program and students.”
