Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation
I am from Emmonak, a community of 1,000 people at the mouth of the Yukon River. I am a person people can look up to in my community where I have worked as a dental assistant for the past 18 months. I have worked closely with a practicing DHAT. Growing up in rural Alaska I know about the lack of dental care. I want to help my community by improving the availability of routine dental services.

“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.”
