Kathryn Gilliam, BA, RDH, FAAOSH
Kathryn Gilliam’s interest in the medical side of dentistry led her to years of advanced study into the oral-systemic link, including graduating twice from the prestigious Bale Doneen Method Preceptorship Course and earning her fellowship in the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health. Her company, PerioLinks, LLC, was born out of her desire to train dental teams to transform their practices to care for the total health of their patients through comprehensive periodontal treatment.
