Dorothy Garlough, RDH, MPA, YES
Dorothy’s experience is broad, deep and varied. Graduating from Western Kentucky University, Dorothy has worked in the healthcare profession for close to a generation and has also expanded her repertoire to include owning a full service photography studio. The combination of being both a business owner and a staff member has given her a unique perspective on how to bring creativity and profitability to other businesses.
Another “coo” for Dorothy has been her employment by multiple international cruise lines to offer “edutainment” to their guests! This has lead Dorothy to combine entertainment and education in a unique and engaging way within her training modules. She realizes that fun creates the best learning environment and she continuously challenges herself to stimulate learning in a creative way.
Dorothy’s leadership is recognized in both the US and Canada not only through her monthly column for RDH Magazine, but also through a multitude of articles published in professional journals. She currently sits on the advisory committee for RDH Under One Roof 2016 and lead a brainstorming session entitled: Evolve Your Dental Hygiene Career at RDH Under One Roof. Furthermore, Dorothy offered her two programs Creativity in Dentistry – Brainstorming for Breakthrough and Beyond Bullying at the ADHA’s conference in 2016.
Bringing a holistic approach to offices is Dorothy’s mandate. As a Yoga Exercise Specialist, she understands that approaching challenges from a state of calmness always leads to better results. Additionally, Dorothy knows the science behind mindfulness and consistently works to bring a centered perspective to her training. She utilizes this yogic experience by creating work environments that are empowering and engaging for all staff members, and offers them skills to reach their individual and collective potential.
Dorothy’s life vision is to help others consciously Create Tomorrow Today. Helping others to recognize that tomorrow is simply yesterday’s dreams and that you are the creator of your life, is Dorothy’s highest calling!
Leading teams to disrupt old mental models and create new patterns of engagement is the sweet nectar that Dorothy drinks daily.
