As professional education manager, she will lead the projects associated with the MouthWatch CE course curriculum, webinars, and additional education programs that will continue to grow and evolve, according to the company.
“We’re extremely fortunate to have someone join our growing management team who can serve in two very strategic roles simultaneously. Jamie is uniquely qualified to excel in this newly created position,” said MouthWatch CEO and founder Brant Herman.
With more than 20 years of dental industry experience, Collins is a practicing dental hygienist, lecturer, and author, including work for Dentistry Today. She also has served as a dental assisting and dental hygiene instructor.

Meanwhile, Strange will have a variety of responsibilities as client success manager, MouthWatch said, including creating training and educational materials for MouthWatch clients and sharing her clinical knowledge with the product development and marketing teams.
“Michelle is well regarded as a clinician, educator, and communicator. Her multi-faceted capabilities will be extremely valuable to our rapidly growing client success team,” Herman said.

She is a graduate of the Medical University of South Carolina with a bachelor’s degree in health science. She also holds a master’s degree in dental hygiene education from the University of Bridgeport.
