    Remote Supervision: Exploratory Toolkit

    This toolkit serves as a general introduction into how to explore the basics of practicing under remote supervision, including grant opportunities for funding. Because dental hygienists, under Virginia law, cannot be directly reimbursed by third party insurance entities, financial viability can be a challenge, unless you are able to partner with a non-profit/government funded facility that already has some resources in place. If you are interested in pursuing a remote supervision setting, but don’t know where to start, this Exploratory toolkit provides some basic information to help in your decision-making process.

    Your Cost:

    Members - $5.00

    Non-Members - $40.00

    Click on the Register button to purchase the Toolkit and enter your payment. After submitting payment, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to the Toolkit document. (You may want to save your confirmation email, and refer back to the URL for future updates to materials.)

    Title

    Linda Boyd, RDH 


    Linda resides in Northern Virginia at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains with her 2 and 4-legged family members. A passionate dental hygienist, she is an active member of the ADHA and Greater Loudoun Hygiene Study Club. 

    Community is very important to Linda and her family. She truly believes in "Giving Back" and "Paying it Forward" providing dental health and career educational programs in area schools. Bridging the gap between the medical and dental community and certified in mental health first aid, Linda has partnered with her daughter, (a senior nursing student) in providing support of suicide prevention. They also provide education and life-saving training to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths. 

    As the family personally experienced drug addiction, an overdose event and death. Linda made it her mission to help allied medical professionals become educated on drug use, addiction and how to save a life by administering Naloxone. Linda received her REVIVE and R.O.P.E. trainer certification through the Chris Atwood Foundation.
