Each week the RDH PIRA (Patient Impact & Rise Above) recognition program, sponsored by Water Pik, Inc., features a dental hygiene clinician who excels in his or her role and goes the extra mile. The past two years have been a challenge for many clinicians and as we return to the operatory, we want to acknowledge those who provide patient care—clinicians who are changing their patients’ lives, influencing their patients’ health, and making a difference every day. This week we honor Megan Randolph, BSDH, RDH. Here's what a colleague had to say about Megan:
"One of my practice dental assistants was out to dinner and was wearing a jacket with the office name. A young woman came up to her and asked if she works at that office. The dental assistant said yes. The young woman proceeded to tell her how Megan, the dental hygienist at the office, made her feel so comfortable and confident with her smile as a kid that she became a dental assistant. The young woman said she lives what she does and helping people just like Megan helped her."
A bit more about Megan from her PIRA submission:
"I graduated from the University of Michigan and have been in clinical hygiene for 18 years. I love my office and patients. I've been married for 18 years also and have two boys who play soccer. I love to go up north, read, and craft with my cricut. I cannot wait for UOR 2022; I miss networking with other dental professionals."
