A long-time resident of Atlanta, Georgia and Registered Dental Hygienist since 1995, Tonya’s involvement in dentistry goes way beyond the dental practice. Aside from being a member of the Academy of Dental Hygiene (ADHA), Entrepreneurial Organization (EO) and Academy of Dental Management Consultants (ADMC), she is on the planning committee for the Northern District Dental Society (NDDS) Gala for Smiles, public relations liaison for the Georgia Dental Hygiene Association (GDHA), and volunteers for the Georgia Mission of Mercy and the Ben Mansell Clinic. Tonya also works with the Georgia Department of Education’s Business Advisory Committee. She is a talented and engaging public speaker, using her boundless energy and enthusiasm to deliver her message about helping practices find and hire the right team member; while assisting job seekers with career coaching.
With the arrival of twin girls, it led Tonya to create a new identity as a successful “intrepreneur,” building her business while continuing to work as a Registered Dental Hygienist for dental practices. While maintaining multiple temp positions, she discovered that the process of looking for work in her field was itself a full-time job. Always an enthusiastic networker, Tonya built up a large database of contacts with whom she shared information about possible jobs; she even started hearing from practices looking for people, and made introductions, helping to connect job-seekers with employers.
While this proved extremely gratifying, it revealed to Tonya a need for a dedicated, simple, easy-to-use way to connect job-seekers with employers in the dental field. Tonya started DentalPost.net in 2005. Since then, DentalPost has grown into a networking platform for over 400,000 dental professionals and over 26,000 dental offices and growing. Tonya continues to work as a Registered Dental Hygienist; she believes that staying active in the field provides her with new insights and knowledge every day.
