Colleen Rutledge - RDH

Colleen Rutledge, RDH enjoys a multifaceted career as a dental hygiene consultant, national speaker, and well-respected dental hygienist focusing on the non-surgical approach to managing periodontal disease.  Her dental career began over 30 years ago in Philadelphia after completing a dental assisting externship at Temple University and graduating class president from National School of Health Technology.  She continued her education and earned a degree in dental hygiene at Coastal Carolina Community College in North Carolina and was the recipient of the Hu-Friedy Golden Scaler Award.  Colleen diligently incorporated several modalities of periodontal therapy in both insurance-driven and fee-for-service practices. Her skillfully-honed communication skills positively affected patient compliance, subsequently increasing daily hygiene production by over 40%.

Her passion for providing dental offices and patients with evidence-based preventive care resulted in the establishment of her own consulting company Perio-Therapeutics & Beyond (www.PerioAndBeyond.com), which offers hands-on expert clinical hygiene consulting by teaching over-the-shoulder techniques in non-surgical periodontal therapy procedures. Published in several dental publications including Dental Economics, Dental Product Report and Dentistry Today, Colleen is recognized as a “Leader in Dental Consulting”. Colleen’s speaking programs provide inspiration and motivation to dental professionals across the country.  She is a popular speaker, presenting at major dental conferences during the past decade such as the Hinman, Greater New York, RDH under One Roof and Yankee Dental Congress.
