Irene found Amanda's instagram account the night before we recorded this super last min episode where Katrina wasn't even a co-host yet!
Here is the link to the photo we mentioned on Amanda's Instagram account that made Irene KNOW, we needed to share her story.
Amanda shares with us her journey of triumphs and defeats in the dental world as well as a very special announcement about her family!
She also shares how hygenists can best accomodate for dental patients that are deaf.
