Join us on today’s show where Dr. MaryJane Hanlon shares her journey in the dental profession, her challenges and her successes. Great insight!
Having more than a passing interest in dentistry as a young girl, Dr. MaryJane Hanlon began her career at 14 years old in an orthodontic office as an extra set of hands for the assistants. From there, she worked as a dental assistant, ran the front desk of an office, became a dental hygienist and worked in the profession for 15 years followed by dental school to finally fulfill her long-term goal of becoming a dentist.
Currently she is the Associate Dean of Clinic Affairs at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine where she manages the clinical operations across the school. In addition, she is actively involved in organized dentistry both at the state and national level. Nationally she serves on the Membership Committee of the American Dental Association and locally she serves as the current Vice President of the Massachusetts Dental Society.
