Dental Hygienist | Dental Phobia Disrupter | Neuroscience Nerd | Polyvagal Theory Enthusiast | Trauma Informed Care Provider & Trainer online: Email: [email protected] ———————————————— Who Am I? ✅Dental Hygienist 🦷 (30K Clinical hours) ✅Speaker 🗣 (Since I can remember, 24 years professionally) ✅Trainer 🤝 (28 years) ✅Writer 🖋 (First appeared in my middle school’s anthology, published a few times since then) ✅Wanna be podcaster 🎧 All this to say I’ve been stomping around for a while now. ———————————————— What do I do? Disrupt the narrative around dental anxiety and dental phobia. Bridge the gap between those impacted by complex trauma and practitioners who provide dental care to them. ———————————————— Why am I doing it? Dental anxiety should not be a thing! It is no longer acceptable for dental patients to cope with anxiety and feel unsupported - or worse yet - blamed & shamed. It is also unacceptable for practitioners to struggle to treat patients whose anxiety strains the provider/patient relationship. ———————————————— How do I do it? Helping providers to develop best practices and environments that support Trauma Informed Healthcare and Resilience Cultivation. Supporting patients with tools and strategies to stay grounded and engaged throughout their treatment. ———————————————— Some other stuff: ✨Mom ✨World Traveller ✨Francophile and newbie francophone ✨Poet ✨Crooner ✨Cat Person 🦷Dentistry🍏Education🧀Psychology 💊Medicine🧬Biology🌽Nutrtion🍎Health 🍃Mindfulness🏃🏽‍♀️Fitness
