Kate Machado, RDH

Meet Kate, our Wing behind #DoingAngelsWorkBoston

Kate reports, "I have been active member of the ADHA since the beginning. I was part of SADHA back in dental hygiene school. Now with a few years of clinical experience, I am still going strong with my professional memberships in the ADHA and MDHA. I was first introduced to Hope & Comfort in February this year. Their presentation about who they were and their mission sparked something in me that I was not expecting. I knew that my professional association was a great place to reach out for help and resources. This is where Hygienists For Humanity came in."

 "Hope and Comfort’s mission is to provide essential

hygiene products to support and improve the health, self-esteem, and hygiene education of school-aged children and young adults in need within Greater Boston"

She continues, "As dental professionals and just human beings in general, we should help each other. Each of us has our own unique relationships, partnerships, and available resources we can use to help others in need. I'm truly grateful in working with Hygienists for Humanity. We have executed an #AngelsDoingWork event in just a few months to help sort and pack health and dental care products for children of all ages in the Greater Boston Area. We all share positive and collaborative ideas as we are continuing working towards more possibilities for events/missions in the near future."

Read how Kate embodies Hygienists For Humanity's values

Kate Explains, "Many of Hygienists For Humanity's values resonate with me. The two that stood out were Growth and Partnership. I have said it once, I'll say it again. I have always wanted to be a dental hygienist. I was that little girl at five years old telling everyone I wanted to be a RDH when I grew up, so that's what I did. I have grown into a more confident person for it. It has given me opportunities I never knew I wanted. Dental hygiene has opened my eyes and has created new career aspirations such as going back to school for my bachelors to become a dental hygiene educator. One huge part of my growth was communication. I now speak at my dental hygiene school through my professional association's mentor liaison program (in this program, I am a resource for soon to be RDH graduates and the ADHA/MDHA)."

 "Next, partnerships. In this domino-like effect, with my growth came partnerships. Becoming a member of my professional association brought me to Hygienists For Humanity. My bachelor degree brought me to a non-profit called Hope & Comfort. After hearing Hope & Comfort's mission I quickly thought how can I help. My thought was that I can combine my association and Hygienists for Humanity with Hope Comfort, which

helps children of all ages with hygiene insecurity in the Greater Boston Areas. I have so many positive things to say about dental hygiene. Hygienists For Humanity's values directly correlate within the dental hygiene profession and everyone can embody them!"

Our member, Jen Kopp of Winfield, MO is spotted sporting her EXCLUSIVE Hygienists For Humanity baseball cap after a day full of 'doing good' aka clinical care. Jen snagged this cool cap in 2018 at RDH UOR in National Harbor, MD during a contest in which each person who donated product or bags were eligible to win.  Jen proudly wears her Hygienists For Humanity gear and says she supports us because we are 'an organization that serves from the heart.  Hygienists For Humanity is looking to serve those in need and not worry about turning a profit. I am a #HygienistForHumanity because I have a servants heart.  I left a very comfortable private practice position to practice in public health because I wanted to be part of the solution for the healthcare discrepancy we have in our nation.' 


Keep being the change you want to see, Jen!  With your support in Winfield, Missouri we can continue #DoingAngelsWork & advocate for care in vulnerable populations all around the country. Thanks for your support, Jen!
