Nancy Bouchard’s passion for dental education sprang from her own life, experiencing dentistry from many perspectives, and having worked in many roles of dentistry. As a result, she intentionally tailors her lectures and workshops to educate and appeal to all members of the dental team.
Before becoming a dentist, she attended Forsyth School for Dental Hygienists and worked for many years as a hygienist in general, pediatric, and periodontal practices. She personally experienced the frustrations of not being able to get diagnostic radiographs on the first attempt. As a result, she is passionate about sharing tips, tricks, and experience to build the skills and confidence of dental professionals.
Dr. Bouchard taught as a faculty member at Forsyth School for Dental Hygienists and Boston University Dental School, where she instructed dental and dental hygiene students in radiation techniques, safety, and interpretation. As a graduate of the University of Maryland Dental School, she is currently a general dentist in Florida.
