 "Health Through Oral Wellness: A 'H.O.W.' To"

presented by Karen O'Connor, RDH & Christa Keddie, RDH

Karen graduated from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS), Forsyth Dental Hygiene program in 2004 and returned to complete her Bachelor degree in dental hygiene in 2007 from the same institution. She is currently a Masters degree candidate with MCPHS University, Boston, MA and hopes to complete coursework by the Summer of 2017.

Karen has worked as a registered dental hygienist for the last 12 years, treating ages 1-101, including the Medicaid population. She also taught at MCPHS University, Forsyth Dental Hygiene program Worcester, teaching dental materials, local anesthesia lab and all aspects of clinic for the past three years.

Karen is excited to be part of the Northeast Delta Dental team and thrilled to be a part of the growth of the HOW® program and PreViser™. Having taught with PreViser™ at MCPHS University as part of the dental hygiene process of care, she hopes to see it adopted not only in the northeast, but also nationally, internationally, and by other carriers.



Christa has been practicing dental hygiene for the last seven years in the Boston area. She graduated from Mount Ida College in Newton, MA with her dental hygiene degree in 2009. After working for a year, she returned part time to complete her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene and graduated in May 2015.

After successfully incorporating a caries risk assessment into her practice, Christa was ready for a bigger challenge. When she heard of the opportunity at Northeast Delta Dental for the Oral Health and Wellness Solutions Specialist position for the Health through Oral Wellness® (HOW®) program, she was thrilled that a dental benefits company wanted to incorporate risk assessments into dental practices.

Christa’s goal at Northeast Delta Dental is to make the PreViser™ risk assessment the standard tool to be used on all patients before, during, and after dental treatment.
