ASDOH alumna continues serving the underserved

December 5, 2014
Posted In: Alumni Headlines, ASDOH, Student Headlines

Dezbaa Damon-Mallette, DMD, ’07, knew early on she wanted to help individuals who needed it most. It was this drive that has taken her to rural areas of Alaska and Navajo communities in New Mexico. On Dec. 4, 2014 Dr. Damon-Mallette shared her professional path with students during the George Blue Spruce Hero Healer luncheon series.

After graduating from ATSU’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health, Dr. Damon-Mallette spent four years as a staff dentist in remote areas of Alaska. After working with the communities in Alaska, she decided to move to the Navajo Reservation in Ganado, Ariz. – her home community – to provide needed dental care to underserved families.

“Learn about the people, and learn about the culture,” said Dr. Damon-Mallette. “Wherever you go, try to be open to new experiences and ask questions. Ask yourself how you can reach out more.”

Today, Dr. Damon-Mallette serves as dental director at the Community Dental Services, Inc. in Albuquerque, New Mexico and remains committed to providing dental services to underserved communities.
