Sonya Dunbar speaks on the Future of Modern Mobile Dentistry!
We are so excited to have on the US Navy Veteran, author, entrepreneur, public speaker, teacher, and philanthropist, Sonya Dunbar RDH AKA The Geriatric Tooth Fairy! Sonya’s vitality and effort to push our dental community forward culturally and medically is clear in her words and her life’s work. She walks us through the early days of giving free dental care to her Grandmother’s friends and soon dedicating her time to comprehensive geriatric dental care.
Sonya shares her experience of dishing out an industry-shattering speech at RDH Under One Roof 2020 and shares her experience of black invisibility in the white-dominated dental field and at dental conferences. Her long list of accomplishments makes her one of the most remarkable and dynamic peeps in the field today.
We cover some of these topics and much more:
- How can we approach geriatric dental care as hygienists?
- How do you educate seniors on dental care?
- How can we address a lack of diversity in dentistry?
