ASDOH alumna lives out the mission of reaching the underserved

October 3, 2013
Posted In: Alumni Headlines, ASDOH

DezBaa Damon, DMD, ’07 was the featured guest speaker at the ATSU Hero Healer luncheon held on the Arizona campus on Oct. 1. Dr. Damon was vice president of A.T. Still University’s Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health’s (ATSU-ASDOH) inaugural class.

After graduating from ATSU-ASDOH, she lived and worked in a remote Alaskan community for four years as a healer, working with American Indian people. She traveled to isolated villages (sometimes by snowmobile) to provide care. More recently, she has been a dentist for a high desert tribal community in Northern Arizona.

Dr. Damon, an accomplished and sought-after speaker, shared her passion for working with the underserved, how she was inspired to practice frontier health care, and the trials and fulfillment of serving where needs are greatest.
