Caroline Earns ICOI Fellowship
Caroline Jackson is a Texas registered dental hygienist who has been with Dr. John Shoemaker’s General Dentistry, Implant and Cosmetic practice for 5 years now. She earned her “Fellow” from the Association of Dental Implant Auxiliaries in January of this year. The awarding of the “Fellow” status is the highest honor a professional society like the Association of Dental Implant Auxiliaries can bestow on a registered dental hygienist involved in implant dentistry. Caroline has put in hundreds of hours of continuing education into implant dentistry. Her continuing education has taken her to Orlando, Florida, Vancouver, Canada, and New Orleans, Louisiana. She gave a research presentation to her peers and implant dentists worldwide at the International Congress of Oral Implantologist Symposium in Orlando, Florida. Her presentation “Just Clean What you Want to Keep” provided information and research regarding the importance of periodontal and implant health, specifically related to the types of implant prosthetics which can be difficult to manage. She was the only registered dental hygienist awarded the honor at this symposium.
Caroline has been a RDH for over 10 years and has spent the last 5 years with Dr. Shoemaker’s office.
After joining Dr. Shoemaker’s office she has continued to strive for excellence in the care for every dental patient whether their treatment involved a simple cleaning, complex periodontal therapy, or more involved implant debridement. Her knowledge and experience of pathology and working with medically compromised patients increases her appreciation of being a part of such a caring professional dental office.
Congratulations Caroline on an honor presented to very few and for all the time and effort you have given to become a “Fellow” in the Association of Implant Auxiliaries!
