Tell us a little about yourself. Where is your practice? Where did you attend dental hygiene school and take your RDHAP training?

    I am Jyotsana (Julie) Singh. I was born in India and have grown up in the Bay Area for most of my life. I’m a super active citizen who likes to be busy providing volunteer work around my local community. My practice is based out of Concord California which serves the greater Bay Area. Enjoying married life with two children (21,16). 

    I started my dental career at Diablo Valley College and became a registered dental assistant in 1999. Two years into it I pursued dental hygiene. I received dental hygiene education at San Joaquin Valley College in Visalia California. About 15 years into my RDH career I decided to pursue the RDHAP career. I received my education in an Advance/Alternative Practice in dental hygiene at UOP. 

    What made you decide to become an RDHAP?

      My deciding factor of becoming an RDHAP started a long time ago. Last Covid made me realize that I need to move forward now. My RDHAP role has given me an opportunity to be the extended hand to the dental offices. As an RDHAP I am able to provide much-needed dental hygiene care to a large group of seniors in the community.

      What type of RDHAP practice do you have? Do you have a free-standing office? How does your practice model help increase a person’s ability to achieve good oral health?

        I have a sole proprietor LLC mobile dental hygiene care business. Having a mobile unit is very handy to provide dental hygiene care to homebound people. Receiving personalized dental care in the comfort of your own home is a very pleasant experience for all my Homebound clients. These individuals won’t be able to get dental hygiene care due to mobility issues and transportation. I am also an RCEB vendor but not getting any clients. I hope to serve this group in the near future.

        What do you do if you find your dental hygiene patient needs to see a dentist for care?

                     Most of my clients have been referred to me by the local dentists. I do work with a few dentists that are making house calls and I refer my patients to them as needed.

          1. How do your patients pay for your services?

                     My patients pay for the services with a personal check, cash and I do bill their Insurance if needed.

          Once you complete their dental hygiene care, then what?

                       After completing the initial care, I schedule my clients for their next Recare appointment. Most of the appointments are scheduled by consulting healthcare directives and family members. It’s very important to me that dental care continues to be accessible to optimize overall health.

            Is there anything else you would like to share with patients, family members or the health professionals who care for people who can’t care for themselves?

                         Yes, absolutely! The importance of oral health and overall health are equally important. Many services are not obvious to search for but those are available. please ask around and go the extra mile to find out more services for people who can’t care for themselves.
