SOD Dental Hygienist Leads Event

Hygiene Event

Robin Cox, R.D.H., B.S.D.S., periodontology instructor, lives in the St. Johns area of North Portland. So, when she was asked to serve her community by leading the June 28 Compassion North Portland event at Roosevelt High School, she agreed.“

It seemed like a natural fit,” said Robin. “I’m a dental hygienist looking for ways to give back while utilizing my expanded practice permit in Oregon. Being affiliated with OHSU School of Dentistry, I was able to recruit dental providers and students, and ended up with a huge response.

“It was very rewarding, and our students did a fantastic job bringing dental care to the community. They made good decisions and were so willing, kind, and did good dentistry.”
