Meet Lynn Southerland! A Healthcare Hygienist with Heart

May 09, 2023

Meet Lynn Southerland, MPA, RDH, FAADH. She is the Education Director and an Assistant Professor at Coastal Bend College Dental Hygiene Program in Beeville, Texas, and a proud member of National Network of Healthcare Hygienists (NNHH).

Lynn has always loved to communicate and educate. She especially loves working with children, and is currently working her dream job. She joined NNHH to further her understanding of the oral/systemic link so that she can pass that on to her patients and students at a higher level.

Lynn said, 

The Oral Systemic Educator Certificate Program increased my knowledge about a wide variety of conditions so that I can be a more effective teacher and practitioner. Now when I chat about oral-systemic health, I have an increased sense of confidence that yes I DO know what I am talking about. The program has all the latest science-based information organized into one place. It is truly amazing!”

For those looking to rejuvenate their career and expand their career options she says she highly recommends joining NNHH and diving into the programs. She chose to educate women about maintaining their child's oral health for her Capstone Project and had a really great experience.
