Noor Ajaz, RDH, graduated summa cum laude from Collin College in the top 10% of her hygiene class. She is passionate about the connection between oral and systemic health. Like the other third of Americans who are sleep-deprived, Noor also often neglected sleep. Since researching the effects of sleep loss on oral health, Noor has incorporated sleep hygiene practices into her nightly routine and improved her quality and quantity of sleep. She is motivated to continue sleep research to better educate patients about the oral-systemic link and hopes to become more involved in sleep dentistry.
