(RDH) 2nd Vice President
My name is Shawna Mendel and I graduated from the University of Texas School of Dentistry Houston in 2016. As a student I was a student delegate at TDHA for both years and class Vice President my second year. Since graduating I have been a delegate for Greater Houston (2017, 2018), served as 2nd Vice President for GHDHA (3/2018-5/2018), and volunteered in my free time. I currently work at Carus Dental in Atascocita and have worked there since graduation. Through this company I am a member of the community service and hygiene committees. Because of these opportunities I have been able to initiatr a relationship between Carus Dental and San Jose Clinic where we as a company are making future plans to make continuing monetary donations and scheduling volunteer hours with employees through out Carus. I am also a member of the Dental Hygiene Codeologist Focus Group, lead by Patti DiGiangi. Outside of dental hygiene I am a mom of two teenage boys, teach private cello lessons (6 years), am a member of the Kingwood Pops Orchestra, and love camping.
