“Patti and Lora built my knowledge of the oral-systemic connection from the ground up.  I truly feel that I give my patients the utmost care because of the tools and communication skills they helped me develop.”

Amanda S, RDH

“DHE has made a HUGE impact on how I practice as a hygienist. I now know the benefit of saliva testing and how oral bacteria can affect the body. They are helpful with developing protocols and keeping everyone on the same page. They are great for setting a high standard of care. They are great sounding boards for ideas, questions, and problem solving. They have challenged me in ways I didn’t think were possible. I practice at a whole other level than most of my classmates. They are appreciated!”
