Joanne L. Roos, RDH, Author of Who Visits Me From A-Z

11/15/2016

 

Joanne L. Roos, RDH, Author of Who Visits Me From A-Z

 

Joanne L. Roos, RDH, BS has over thirty years' experience as a dental hygienist. She currently works with a pediatric practice developing a dental health outreach program. Joanne visits over one hundred schools annually and has helped thousands of children learn how to care for their teeth. Working with children inspired Joanne to write Who Visits Me From A-Z. Joanne received her B.S. from Columbia University of Dental Medicine

 

 

Denta+media: Tell me about yourself, what is your history?

Joanne: A native New Yorker, I have spent over thirty years as a dental hygienist – the first twenty in private practice in Manhattan and the last decade working in a local pediatric practice and coordinating and managing a dental health outreach program to local schools, libraries and daycare centers. 

 

Denta+media: What is your current position?

Joanne: Currently I work at Main Street Pediatric Dentistry, developing a dental health outreach program educating children on how to take care of their teeth.

 

Denta+media: How long have you been in the position?

Joanne: While I have always enjoyed working in private practice, I found my true passion was in educating children about dental health.

In coordination with my current employer, Main Street Pediatric Dentistry, I created a dental health outreach program a decade ago. I currently visit over one hundred schools annually educating thousands of children.

 

Denta+media: Was there a turning point that caused you to change positions?

Joanne: In the course of growing this outreach program, I realized there was no existing children's book that inspired and excited children the way I wanted to.

I took things that children loved – animals, the alphabet and colorful illustrations – and wrote a book, Who Visits Me from A to Z, two years ago that is intended to encourage children and help build a positive attitude about what happens during a dental visit.

The book is currently published in two editions – English and a Spanish bilingual version. 

 

Denta+media: Is there a Mentor that you identify as the one person who helped you achieve your goals or set you on your current path to success?

Joanne: My employer, Dr. Penny Graulich, greatly encouraged me to develop this dental health outreach program. She saw what I was most passionate about and gave me the opportunity to turn this passion into something of lasting value for dental professionals, teachers, parents and children alike.

 

Denta+media: Describe an example of what success means to you.

Joanne: Seeing my work come to fruition and creating a legacy. I believe Who Visits Me from A to Z is a timeless children's book that will have lasting value. Who Visits Me from A to Z was a labor of love and unleashed the writer in me.
