61- @DrJoyRDH- Does the President have his own RDH?

Welcome back, Peeps!

Thanks to our friends at Dentsply Sirona we are back for another amazing week! Fun fact, here are the dets on the part 1/part 2 Webinars Irene and Katrina are tuning into. 


The time is now! The oral-systemic link is not new to dentistry; however, communicating its significance to our patients AND providing more effective periodontal care is now more important than ever. This session will guide you through the latest research and help you create a plan to provide optimal care for patients while practicing a ‘safety-first’ approach. Tune in to add to your 2021 CE portfolio! 


Today we are so happy to speak with Dr. Joy Void-Holmes. She takes us on the journey through dental classes at Howard University where she was class president, getting her Ph.D., acting as a dentist for Al Gore, all while navigating four pregnancies... AND getting her real estate license. Dr. Joy’s story is filled with surprises that she encounters with a determination that is clear in her every word. She strives to claim new respect for all dental hygienists and dental educators so that they can have the autonomy they deserve. Thank you so much to Dr. Joy for sharing her warm sense of humour and the contagious pride she takes in her work.


We cover some of these topics and much more:

  • Does the president have a dental office?
  • Can you raise kids as a dental hygienist?
  • Should a dental hygienist get a Ph.D.?
  • Are dental educators paid fairly?
