I've been involved in community health dentistry for 33 years and private rural dental practice for 25. Both my daughters have chosen to become dentists and we all work at public health oriented practices. I generally believe in conservative minimally invasive dentistry. I went to Penn Dental graduating in 1981 as a member of the OKU dental honorary society. I have been a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association since that time.
