It was out of this desire for improvement that the "Geriatric Tooth fairy" was born. With her knowledge, experience, skill and passion for dentistry she has developed a platform of educating, communicating and motivating the healthcare industry of the importance of elderly dental care. The Geriatric Tooth fairy is dedicated to communicating this message as much as possible to as many people as she can to help improve the care of our greatest generation. She understands that prevention is key to help improve the quality of life for the geriatric population.
