Carol Vander Stoep, RDH – Speaking & Consulting
Carol Vander Stoep is a popular speaker with both general and professional audiences on a wide array of subjects concerning connections between oral and general health. Through more than three decades of clinical experience as a dental hygienist, Carol came to understand how oral hygiene’s marginal position in dentistry – and dentistry’s marginal position in preventive medicine – has kept us from understanding and appreciating the role oral care and orofacial development should play in our daily lives.
Too few realize that the consequences of neglect go beyond teeth and gums, sweet breath and winning smiles. The mouth is the most exposed gateway to our bodies. What goes on within it or passes through it can have profound implications elsewhere.
Carol’s crisp descriptions of physiology, biology and human health science never fail to motivate her audiences to take specific steps to “change their terrain” in ways they never before knew they should or could – to make their bodies inhospitable to disease.
