Lynda Sherman is an Expanded Functions Dental Auxiliary who practices in Columbus, Ohio. Though she initially attended school for broadcast journalism, her next-door neighbor introduced her to dentistry. Not only did that change her career path, but she also found her purpose.
Lynda’s innovative approaches to the placement of direct restorations make her a master clinician. She has also collaborated as Clinical Manager for a DSO. She has been working on growing her dental consulting company this past year, but her passion for dental disease prevention has taken over the direction of her future. Noticing that dental disease is still as prevalent today as it was 10, 20, and even 40 years ago, if not worse, she is using her influence to inspire the dental industry to shift their thinking from treatment and replacement to prevention instead. She is utilizing her speaking skills to make an impact by advocating at the medical level for dental education intervention. And she is pushing for national media recognition to get the word out that this disease is 100% preventable. Lynda would call herself an activist, as she is on the journey to eradicate tooth decay.
