Cathy Grinham RDH
Executive Director VDA of MA LLC
Cathy has been a dental hygienist for 10 years working mostly in private practices on the South Shore. She was concerned about the amount of people unable to access dental care due to financial constraints, location or mental/physical limitations. In 2010 she applied to become one of the states' first public health dental hygienists, and all of that changed. She was now able to provide preventive oral health directly on-site to those in desperate need. Cathy was so excited about her new path that she started VDA of MA LLC in order help other registered dental hygienists fulfill their professional dreams and goals.
