Communications Program Manager

Dennis Raymond acted as the project manager for the 2012 refresh of the DENTEX website, collaborating with the leadership and developer to deliver a strong advocacy tool for the DHAT concept. He has a background in marketing, software development and strategic planning, and currently works as the Communications Program Manager for MEDEX Northwest in Seattle, WA. Dennis has traveled extensively—living and working in SE Asia over different periods of time. This has resulted in cultural awareness and sensitivity towards others outside our Western way of life.

“Alaska is a big state and access can be difficult especially with the conditions of weather or with the expensive of travel. So having a DHAT placed in a village setting is both rewarding and beneficial for the people. I see the dental therapists as a new mainstream for dental prevention, working together as a team with all occupations of the dental field. We’re a new kind of provider, a profession that has so much promise to the future of oral health. I see all the smiles and gratitude the patients have for the services we provide and I’m proud to be here helping. It warms my heart and gives me the sense that I’m doing something right.”
