  2. Know what education the nursing assistant has

Hi Kathy,
Thank you in your interest of our course!

I am glad you posted this concern. I am not sure of the process of taking the other two courses. I have sent an e-mail about your experience to my contact at DT Study Club. I will try to get this taken care of as soon as possible.

Dear Angie,
I am a Registered Dental Hygienist in Florida and have been practicing for 26 years. I have general, Pediatric and Periodontal experience. I have recently become unemployed and divorced and am looking for something new and fresh in my career. I took your course several years ago at the FNDC in Orlando and have never forgotten you. Your presentation was moving to me. I remember you had said there was a packet of material than one could order if interested in this career path( wish I would have gotten it then). I am not sure if Fl allows this type of teaching to CNA's by RDH's, but if you have more information for me I would appreciate an e-mail. Thank You for your consideration and God Bless. My e-mail:

Hi Leslie,

I am sorry, but I do not have the answer to that question. I am simply the creator of the course and have nothing to do with the moderation of it. Please contact Dental Tribune Study Club directly. Thank you for taking the course. If I can help with anything course related...let me know!

HyLife is dedicated to changing this statistic.  Angie’s mantra is, “They shouldn’t die of dirty teeth.”   She and her team are making strides to ensure this does not continue to happen. Angie was awarded the Sunstar Award of Distinction in 2012 for her work with the nursing home population and xylitol.

Her enthusiasm for dental hygiene, elders and her dental colleagues is apparent when she takes the podium.  She has spoken across the United States and Internationally.

Shirley Gutkowski, RDH, BSDH, FACE practiced clinical dental hygiene in and around Madison, WI from 1986 to 2003 when she focused her energy on writing and speaking.

She haswritten chapters on sealants, and temporary fillings in the textbook Essentials of Dental Hygiene.

Clinical practice has taken a back seat to speaking across the country and internationally as far away as Germany and Australia on minimal intervention dental hygiene through her business Cross Link Presentations.
