RDH magazine is a trade magazine for Registered Dental Hygienists. This month in their April 2012 (volume-32/ issue 4) issue, an article was written by: Lory Laughter, RDH, BS
Author Lori Laughter titled her article: Life outside of hygiene!
The article can be found by following this link:
The article hightlights a few dental hygienists who have lives “outside” the hygiene world. The article basically makes you think about how people assume and define you by what they see in front of them. We – hygienists think about things other than teeth!
I am honored to have been one of the hygienists RDH Magazine selected to write about and I wanted to share the particular paragraph that was written about me and our group previvorsandsurvivors.com with you all.
I am directly quoting from the article:
“Tobey, RDH, from Oceanside, NY, (who does not use her last name on the website) introduced me to
Reading her experience on the “about” page was a moving and educational experience. Until visiting the site, I had never heard of a previvor. Spending some time here learning about the BRCA gene’s relationship to breast and ovarian cancers will help all women make informed decisions about their own health care regarding prevention and diagnostic testing. Previvors and Survivors is a nonprofit organization that provides support, skills, and resources for women who are dealing with the difficult decisions surrounding BRCA, hereditary breast cancer, and ovarian cancer. The pages are filled with critical information, touching and inspiring stories, and ways each of us can become involved in helping affected women and families. Please do not leave the site without reading Tobey’s story and sharing it with at least one other woman. It is information we cannot afford to overlook.”
Follow the link above to read about the other amazing hygienists and I agree with Lori Laughter – next time you meet someone in business, ask them about their life. You might be pleasantly surprised by what you find out.
Thank you again RDH magazine & Lori Laughter.
