TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
I want to create a student centered environment conducive to learning. I serve as a facilitator and try to model clinical, communicative, and professional skills and attitudes. I try to help the students connect learning to real life experiences they will encounter as vital members of the health care team. I try to develop students' critical thinking and problem solving skills they will need as health care providers. I believe dental hygienists should be oral health educators and facilitators in their patients' quests for the understanding of and attainment of optimum oral and general health through prevention, communication, education and treatment.
