My Journey to Fellowship and Beyond

I like to describe the road through the ADAA Fellowship/Mastership program as education excellence. Having been a dental assistant for 32 years, I am always learning something new. This world of dentistry is ever changing, and if you want to be the best you can be, you’ve got to keep up. I believe that every assistant that takes their career seriously needs to go through the program. It shows you are dedicated and determined, it makes you stand out as a true professional. As an educator, what better way to lead than by example?

Do You Remember Your Dental Assisting School Experience?

As a displaced survivor of Hurricane Katrina, I like many others had been thrown in a situation where our lives as we knew it had been destroyed. I had invested 30 years to teaching, 25 of those years were with special needs children. I worked with a multidisciplinary team consisting of a school psychologist, educational diagnostician, speech therapist, social worker, physical therapist and occupational therapist. My job as an adapted physical education evaluator was to evaluate and recommend placement in the least restrictive environment. That was my day job. Most teachers had second and sometimes third jobs outside of teaching to make ends meet. At one of my regular dental appointments, my dentist’s receptionist had to leave because of illness and he did not have anyone to answer the phones and greet his patients. I volunteered to help him out and was asked if I could continue after school.

A Hidden Gem

Last summer I attended a small, local continuing education course put on by Dentsply. I was working toward my ADAA Fellowship award at that time and took advantage of this morning meeting. The theme of this course was dental implants, care and maintenance and was designed for hygienist and assistants. The speaker talked about an organization that I had never heard of. Come to find out, I’ve not found many people who have. The organization I learned about that day is the Association of Dental Implant Auxiliaries (ADIA) a component of the International Congress of Oral Implantologist (ICOI). The ADIA is an organization that is open to all office manager or clinical team members.
