About the Dental Insider

TheDentalInsider.com is an online resource created by a state licensed dental hygienist. This site is for patients or non-industry consumers who want to learn more about the ins-and-outs of dentistry.

Inspiration for TheDentalInsider.com comes after listening to years of dental horror stories from my patients and friends. As the creator, my intent is to educate and give people accurate and current information on dental topics that are important or unclear to them. TheDentalInsider.com offers dental skeptics and patients alike an insider view into the world of dentistry.

Here you can get education on dental symptoms, safety, recipes, technology, procedures, products and office management issues from a practicing dental professional’s perspective. I have also made it easy to find help for those that feel they have been wronged by a dental office or clinic.

I’ve been in dentistry for over 20 years and have worked in a range of dental specialties and offices. My state license mandates that I complete 25 units of continuing education every two years thus keeping me current and well versed. I graduated from the University of Southern California (go Trojans!) and am a contributing author to several of the dental trade publications such as RDH Magazine, Inside Dentistry, DentistryIQ, and Dentaltown.
