She completed a Dentist-Geriatric Fellowship Program with the VA and the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in 1985, and directed the VA Geriatric Fellowship Program (1985–1992), the Geriatric Dental Program (1985–1994), and served as chief of the Dental Service from 1994–1998.

I will work with you on career planning or relevant research projects. If I cannot help you I will make a referral if I can. My expertise is at the intersection of dental public health and geriatrics. My research focuses on oral health and the elderly, oral-specific health-related quality of life throughout the life cycle, oral-systemic relationships, and clinical/health services research.
