Anne Rice has been a dental hygienist for over 30 years and her passion to educate providers and the public about oral-systemic health has taken a front seat in her career. She found Oral Systemic Seminars in 2017 and has now devoted her time, focus, and study to dementia prevention and sleep hygiene. Anne firmly believes that dental providers can help stem the current trajectory of Alzheimer’s disease. Through speaking and consulting, Anne’s goal is to give actionable steps to attendees for their own personal lives as well as sharing that information with their patients.
Anne has written for several magazines, is a monthly contributor for Today’s RDH, and has been featured on a dozen podcasts. Anne graduated from the Bale/Doneen Preceptorship for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention, has completed several dementia certifications, and is a Fellow with The American Academy of Oral Systemic Health. In 2020 Anne became a certified Brain Longevity Specialist. The knowledge and research that was presented during her ARPF certification has helped grow her career. In fact, Anne’s manuscript for the journal Frontier’s has been accepted for publication: “Dental Care and the Fight Against Alzheimer’s: Health, Sleep, & Medicare” has been approved for production and accepted for publication in Frontiers in Oral Health, section Oral Hygiene and Oral Health Policy.
