(RDH) Houston Trustee
Tulsi Patel graduated from Pacific University in Hillsboro, Oregon, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2014 and Master of Healthcare Administration in 2016. Before moving to Houston in 2016, she worked part-time as a clinical dental hygienist and dental hygiene instructor at Pacific University. While at Pacific, she instructed in clinical dental hygiene, local anesthesia, restorative, and supervised students at off-site rotations working with expanded functions to deliver oral care to underserved populations. Tulsi served as a TDHA Delegate in 2018 and will be serving as the Chair of Programs for GHDHA from 2018-2019. She hopes to use her experiences to encourage more Texas dental hygienists to get involved and help create positive changes for our profession at the state level.
