In this episode, I got the opportunity to spend some time LIVE with an old colleague and friend, Andrea Edelen, the National Hygiene Director for Mortenson Dental Partners. Andrea currently leads and works with the close to 200 Hygienists that work for Mortenson.
We talked about some of the day to day questions she helps with as well as some of the processes she employs to help on board newer hygienist when they become a part of the Mortenson DSO. She shared her passion for Mortenson and how they are different when it comes to the traditional dental group model. She also talked about the importance of staying on top of knowing the latest and greatest technologies and products in the hygiene world. Thanks for sharing Andrea!
Andrea Edelen, RDH, BS graduated from the University of Louisville Dental Hygiene Program and later received her Bachelor of Science in Oral Health Promotion from O’Hehir University. She spent the early part of her career working in private practice before joining Mortenson Dental Partners in 2008.
Her passion for patient care and helping hygienists achieve success led her to mentoring and eventually the roles of Regional and National Director of Dental Hygiene and Clinical Support. She is a member of the Practice Excellence Team, which encompasses Operations and Learning. Andrea is a member of the American Dental Hygiene Association and Toastmasters.
She is a Louisville Cardinal fan and enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
