"Tongue Tied: A Story Not Silenced By Stage IV Oral Cancer" was an insightful and powerful presentation by Eva Grayzel. Her survivor story included an educational Six-Step Screening for oral cancer. She celebrated her 10 year cancer-free anniversary by authoring "You Are Not Alone: Families Touched By Cancer," the first book in the Talk4Hope series.
HealthPro would like to spotlight Danielle Grundig, RDH, dental hygienist and Dental Operations Manager at Hudson River HealthCare (HRHCare). Danielle's passion to make a difference in patients' lives by focusing on the importance of oral health began at age 14 when she worked one summer as a student intern at HRHCare's Peekskill location. Her positive impression of the field of dentistry soon led her to seek employment as a dental assistant and receptionist while in high school. Shortly thereafter, she chose to pursue a career in dental hygiene. Wherever she is treating patients, whether in private practice or public health, Danielle takes great pride in establishing trusting and respectful relationships with the end result inspiring them to take better care of their oral health. In addition to her excellent clinical skills and successful oral health education outreach programs, Danielle is directly involved in coordinating the daily operations of multiple dental offices within the ever-expanding network of comprehensive health care practices that comprise HRHCare. We are proud to know dental professionals like Danielle who truly advance the field through their pioneering efforts.
