In this episode, I got to spend time with LIVE with a Dental Hygiene Rock Star…Emily Boge. So, who is Emily, well, she’s a lot of things. First and foremost, she is a hygienist, however, she is also an inventor, educator and much more. We got a chance to talk about the her personal invention, the Boge 513. She shared the story of what it took to get that product to market and what it takes to be an inventor. An idea is one thing, making it happen is a totally different issue and she has definitely done that! Thanks for sharing your story Emily!
