Hein, Casey

2022 Consulting Leaders

Casey Hein, BSDH, RDH, MBA, has more than 40 years’ experience as a dental hygienist in private practice, public health, education, and government. She is an internationally recognized speaker and a well-published author including over one hundred scientific articles, consensus reports, white papers, and textbook chapters. Casey is also a consultant to the dental industry, advisory/scientific boards, advocacy groups, and professional associations. She first began speaking about periodontal-systemic links in 2003, when this body of science was emerging. In 2006, she founded (and became the chief editor) of the first publication on oral-systemic medicine: Grand Rounds in Oral- Systemic Medicine. She has developed two educational websites that provide resources for implementation of periodontal-systemic science (caseyhein.com) and online courses related to oral-systemic health for both the dental and medical communities (oralhealthed.com). As a pioneer in and advocate for incorporating periodontal-systemic links into everyday patient care in both medicine and dentistry, she is credited as a visionary in establishing models for dental-medical collaboration in oral health care. In July 2018, Casey retired from her decade-long appointments at the University of Manitoba, where she was an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Periodontics and Director of Education of the International Centre for Oral-Systemic Health in the Dr. Gerald Niznick College of Dentistry; and the director of continuing professional development for dentistry and dental hygiene in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba (Canada). Casey maintains a faculty appointment as an assistant professor in the School of Dental Hygiene. One of her responsibilities at the University of Manitoba was to lead a team in the development of her vision for the first comprehensive curriculum about oral health for physicians, nurses and other non-dental healthcare providers (Oral-Systemic Health Education for Non-Dental Healthcare Providers), which won for the University of Manitoba the prestigious William J. Gies Award for Outstanding Innovation in 2015. She also led notable interprofessional education events including programming in oral-systemic health, “Make the Connection” in 2014, garnering the University of Manitoba the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons’ Innovation Award and the award-nominated interprofessional program, “Obesity Intervention for Front Line Healthcare Providers.” Casey has a bachelor of science degree in dental hygiene from West Virginia University and a masters of business administration from Loyola University. She was accepted into the National Speakers’ Association in 2008 and has maintained an active membership.
