RDH honored by Crest Oral-B for work with kids

Olga Torres, RDH, from Clewiston, FL, has been selected as the latest Crest Oral-B Pros in the Profession winner. The program honors registered dental hygienists who go above and beyond the call of duty every day.

Torres earned her dental hygiene degree from Palm Beach Community College and has been practicing dental hygiene for five years. She works as the sole dental hygienist at the Florida Community Health Center.

Torres was selected from a large pool of candidates based on her passion for teaching pediatric patients and their parents about the importance of oral health care through presentations and workshops in her community.

Torres frequently works with pediatric patients, sometimes seeing up to 15 children a day for dental cleanings, and utilizes her bilingual skills to care for patients facing language barriers in her community, many of which are of Hispanic descent. She has a passion for these patients and dedicates much of her free time giving presentations to both kids and their parents to teach them about the importance of oral health.

When Torres is not working or volunteering, she is in school part-time pursuing a bachelor's degree or spending time with her 16-year-old daughter. She also guest-hosts a local radio show, covering a variety of dental health and hygiene topics.
