Marielle is a dentist with the soul of a Tooth Fairy. She is an explorer engaged in the complex discovery of how community can contribute to oral health as part of its fabric of caring. She is an architect enabling others to build and develop new oral health support systems. Based on her belief that the best dentistry is to teach kids how not to need it, Marielle is currently designing a curriculum for the integration of oral health education in elementary schools with a small group of dedicated teachers. As a speaker, Marielle connects teeth to body and mouth to health in a uniquely engaging way. Her core belief: oral health is a fundamental human right. Her vision: a cavity-free future.
