I have been a dental hygiene educator with the University of Texas Health Science Center Department of Dental Hygiene for the past 14 years. During these years my responsibilities consisted of laboratory and clinical teaching to include pre-clinic, clinic I, II, and III. I have served in the role of laboratory instructor in the oral anatomy, radiology, and dental materials course. I have been co-course director for the Dental Materials/Specialties course, senior clinic coordinator, and external rotation coordinator. I am currently course director for Clinic II, Clinic II Seminar, Clinic III, and Clinic III Seminar. Included with these teaching opportunities, I am responsible for all aspects of the clinical experience for the students 3rd and 4th semesters. I work with the clinical sites that our students go to by obtaining affiliation agreements, and coordinating their time out of the dental hygiene clinic with the health care facilities. In August of 2007 I assumed the role of Director of Continuing
Education for the Department of Dental Hygiene.

My interests lie in utilizing my thirty years of clinical practice experience in the development of clinical course work for dental hygienists and dental assistants. I have co-developed Texas State Board courses for the Certification of Pit and Fissure Sealants, and a Certification course for Dental Assistants in Radiology, Infection Control and Jurisprudence. I also have helped develop a course for Dental Hygienists that want to reinstate the license and re-enter the work force.
