RDH Clinical Recognition Program with Carol Jahn and Kate Machado

April 12, 2024
Carol Jahn spends a few minutes with Kate Machado, the April honoree of the Clinical Recognition Program. Kate said she's always wanted to be a hygienist, so her job is a dream come true.

The Clinical Recognition Program honors the "heart and soul" of dental hygiene: clinicians.

Kate Machado is the April winner of this award, and she could not be more thrilled. Due to the example set by her own dental hygienist when she was growing up, Kate has been on the same career path. She still keeps in touch with her RDH, and she hopes she's serving as an example to others who might be interested in the field.

Kate is also in education and has enjoyed sharing her love of the profession with her students. Hear what else Kate has to say about the profession she loves so much as she chats with Carol Jahn of Waterpik.
