Theresa has given presentations across the state of California about many topics related to Dental Hygiene and Practice Management. She is a community health speaker for the Monterey Bay Dental Society, and she is an active member of the National Speakers Association. Theresa also serves as a substitute teacher in the city of Salinas, which gives her the excitement, and variety that she seeks in her life. She believes that holding the attention of 28 Kindergartners for five hours is much more challenging than speaking to a group of 300 dental professionals. She can also squeeze in a little tooth-brushing lesson with the kiddos while she is there.
Theresa earned BS in Dental Hygiene at Loma Linda University. She is licensed in four states and continues to work as a clinical hygienist in California and Alaska. She is a part time clinical instructor at Carrington College in San Jose, California.
