After working as a private practice Registered Dental Hygienist for 25 years, I became increasingly concerned that basic dentistry was becoming a luxury for those who could afford it or insured, but not equally accessible to those less fortunate. Not surprisingly, this meant more and more people were in critical need of both preventive and emergent care with no real access to care.
With that discouraging backdrop meeting me each work day and sensing there had to be a way to serve the needs of my community more tangibly, I left private practice to pursue a degree in Community Dental Health with hopes of making a difference in people’s lives to a greater degree than I was able to otherwise. While taking my public health courses in 2005, I was introduced to and offered employment with ACC, then a sub-contractor to Logistics Health, Inc. and their Feds_Heal initiative, known now as the Reserve Health Readiness Program (RHRP).
My two daughters, Lauren and Abbey, joined me in the Military Dental Readiness business just months after me and the three of us advanced to full-time corporate level employment as Protocol and Document Specialist, Strategic Project Manager, and Event Manager, respectively. Together, we have worked in 30 states with the various Reserve Components, amassing a combined totaled of 25 years readiness experience along with a large number of friendships and working relationships among the Components and, in particular, the Army National Guard (ARNG). In 2009 we were introduced to the medical side of readiness and all three of us worked in dual leadership roles – both dental and medical – in the ensuing years.
With an amazing nearly nine years under our belts, in 2014 we set our sights and sails as All-STAR Health Solutions fervently committed to making comprehensive Military Readiness not only more affordable to all 50 states and four territories but raising the standard so that every Service Member has equal access to the highest quality of care and compassion they so deserve. We believe that working in a team-like collaboration with the Reserve Component’s Medical Commands using a streamlined and standardized approach, costs in an ever-present and decreasing fiscal environment can be reduced significantly while mandated readiness metric goals can not only be attained but ultimately increased.
Together, let’s be All-STAR Health Solutions: Standing Together; Achieving Result
