"I just want to say - THANK YOU! I am so honored and excited to be a part of NNHH and cannot wait to complete the certification course. I have had ideas, hopes and dreams of integrating my knowledge and skills that I have acquired during the 20+ years I have worked in the dental field, now I feel like I have a roadmap to achieve those goals. Yay!"

Nan Portman, RDH
Oral Systemic Educator Student

"You made a great case for how critical effective oral care is in prevention of nosocomial infections and the need for dental hygienists to be routinely included as part of hospital ICU teams when patients need ventilators."

Deanne Ashcroft, RDH
Oral Systemic Educator Certification Student

"Very useful information and knowledgeable instructors!"

Tara Horgen, RDH
Oral Systemic Educator Certification Student

"I lost both of my parents young to end stage diseases and I thought 'What can I do as a clinician to help patients not go down that path?' I know if I can stop inflammation and chronic disease, I can help them have a long, productive life. I am proud to be both an instructor for the OSE, and a certificate holder. This course is a must for any RDH interested in integration."

Kriston Reisnour, RDH

Laurie Brenchley, RDH
