Muffins, Mimosas, & Dental CE Event was a Success!

Muffins and Mimosas

On April 30, 2022, we launched our maiden Muffins, Mimosas, & Dental CE event. Over 100 dental hygienists, dentists, and dental assistants attended this fun day of learning and networking. Kristin Hunter of Dedicated Dental Hygiene kicked off the morning with prizes from our generous vendors and sponsors.

The morning CE session was presented by Kandice Swarthout, RDH, LPC. Kandice spoke on recognizing and responding to human trafficking in the dental setting. Human trafficking is a rapidly growing multibillion dollar industry, and it is reported that 80% of trafficked persons are seen by a healthcare provider while captive. This course is approved by the TSBDE and Texas Health and Human Services and highlighted the importance for every health professional to receive training on an ongoing basis.

The afternoon speaker was Lisa Mallonee, BSDH, MPH, RD, LD. Lisa spoke on the dangers of obesity in America and the oral systemic link. She emphasized the epidemiology, etiology, and interventions to this epidemic. Lisa’s speaking style brings humor to the stage that makes her content enjoyable and memorable.

But wait, there’s more! Don’t forget about the muffins and mimosas. Attendees enjoyed mimosas served by our RDH bartender, Gina George. They also enjoyed breakfast and a light lunch before receiving their CE certificates and heading out into the beautiful spring day.
