Lori Killen Aus Presents at National Conference

MAIS alum Lori Killen Aus presented a poster session at the 2013 American Dental Hygienists' Association meeting in Boston. More than 4000 attended, celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the dental hygiene profession.

Her presentation, Constructing a Collaborative Model to Improve Oral Health in Yamhill County, was also published in the association's peer-reviewed journal. It outlines a workforce model that utilizes expanded practice dental hygienists to deliver preventive services to the uninsured and under-insured.

Aus's practice, Oral Health for Life, LLC, is meeting these needs. She serves the home bound and those in limited access settings, providing dental hygiene services in a mobile facility.

"Research continues to show that oral infections can have consequences in systematic diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases, osteoporosis, arthritis, COPD, asthma, Alzheimer's and stroke," she says in her company's brochure.

Lori Killen Aus is a 2007 graduate of the MA in Interdisciplinary Studies program. She speaks on the issue of accessible oral health care to civic groups, public health agencies, religious organizations and dental providers.
