Dear Colleagues,

I am so excited to be stepping into my new position as Governmental Relations Chair. As you all may know, I am extremely passionate about helping to push our profession forward and am so anxious to work with our amazing committee in doing so. Some of the initiatives that we will be working on this year are:

Expansion of Practice Sites for PHDHPs

Adding Laser Dentistry to scope of practice for hygienists

Researching on possibility of self regulated board or increasing representation on our current board

While some of these tasks may seem unreachable, we are so excited about chartering into some unknown territories in the hopes of moving ahead in our profession. If you would like to be a part of our committee, please e-mail me at We need some movers and shakers working together to bring about positive change.

I look forward to serving you in this position.
