This week Matt chats with Tia S. Meyer, RDH about her journey in dental hygiene and her role as a leader within a DSO in South Dakota and Nebraska. They discuss implications of the term “non-traditional,” and the importance of redefining its meaning and prioritizing inclusion in our profession. Matt highlights Hispanic Heritage Month and sets the stage for the upcoming October National Dental Hygiene Month, which is right around the corner! Listen in.
“I sometimes ask myself how we made it through.”
“We pulled through strong and I am very proud.”
“I enjoy the ability to lead and influence those around me and hopefully get them on a leadership journey themselves.”
“I know many hygienists who became dental hygienists as a second career.”
“Never close the door in front of you.”
“We need to be tenacious and strong and remain hungry… if you do this it is a matter of when, not if you will reach your goals.”
The health and wellness of the dental hygiene community and the patients you serve is our top priority. We are closely monitoring developments surrounding COVID-19 and will continue to keep you informed. For more information from ADHA, visit https://www.adha.org/covid19.
