[VIDEO] Straight Outta Charlotte – Very Special Announcement


I’m so excited to share this news with you!! It is my pleasure to formally announce that our team has grown to include Emme Sanders as Lead Hygiene Profitability Coach.

Emme is based here in Charlotte and, in just a few months, has already served Inspired Hygiene clients in NC, NY, GA, AL and TN. We’ve been keeping her busy.

And to give you a glimpse of how well she’s integrated with our team and how she’s serving our clients at a super high level, take a look at this great video taken just last week.

Emme is a hygienist of 25 years and has worked in just about every role in the dental practice including consultant and practice administrator. So please help me welcome Emme to the IH team. Rest assured you’ll be hearing more from her.

Are you up for a challenge?


I don’t believe it to be a coincidence that February is National Gum Disease awareness month, along with the American Heart Association’s American Heart month, bringing awareness to heart disease. Both of these diseases can be SILENT killers! YES, WE NOW KNOW that UNCONTROLLED GUM DISEASE (INFECTION) CAN DOUBLE A PERSONS RISK OF HAVING A HEART ATTACK OR STROKE!So to bring awareness to these two diseases, I have a 30 day challenge to all Dental Health Care providers. Watch my short video to see what that challenge is!  Click on this link to learn more about the importance of blood pressure screenings.

Pass this challenge along to all of your friends and colleagues that are in dental health care! Let’s all show how much we truly LOVE OUR PATIENTS!

Live Healthy!

Periodontal Language


Understanding the communication we receive from our Periodontist colleagues can have challenges. Little wonder since periodontists and hygienists are trained using differing terminology which can lead to confusion, frustration and stress.

Join Dr. Audra Ward and myself for this months webinar, Understanding Periodontal Prognosis, as we demystify the periodontal language you will encounter when working with a periodontist.

Understanding Periodontal Prognosis
with special guest
Periodontist Audra Ward DMD, MS

Have you ever been confused when you receive a letter from your periodontist and don’t really understand what it all means or what to tell your patients? Periodontists and hygienists are trained using differing terminology that can lead to confusion, frustration and stress when treating periodontal patients in multiple offices. This webinar seeks to educate hygienists and general dentists about how periodontal prognosis and diagnosis are determined by the periodontist.

On this webinar you will:

Learn and understand the categories of periodontal prognosis
Learn and understand how periodontal disease is explained within the periodontal office
Learn and understand the calculation of attachment loss and how it relates to prognosis
Learn how to have difficult conversations about periodontal disease with your patients
