I love dentistry! I have been an RDA since 1981 and I can honestly say that my experience in this field has been a truly gratifying one. My career began in one of the best offices (ok, possibly biased) in Orange County, and it was at this office I was challenged, I gained experience, and I had the opportunity to develop wonderful, lifelong relationships.
I began teaching over 15 years ago for a post-secondary educational sector. That led to an opportunity of teaching here for our wonderful Coastline Regional Occupational Program. In addition, I also teach as Adjunct Faculty for Cypress College. My credentials in addition to my RDA license include a Subjects Teaching Credential, CDA Certificate, AHA/CPR Instructor Certificate, and a Bachelor of Vocational Education. The classes I teach for Fall and Spring at Coastline ROP are Dental Front Office, RDA Prep and I also serve as the Faculty Advisor for American Heart Association CPR. I also teach a fee based Dental Radiology course in the summer.
The technological advances in dentistry since the time I began in the field continue to amaze and astound me. Orange County Register has listed the dental field as one of the top 20 jobs of the future. The demand for dentistry remains consistent since I began in the early eighties, and has evolved into an exciting and varied field. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with you in this ever progressing field!
