Outreach and Education

                             Pedro Diaz      Oral Health Promotor

 

Pedro Diaz, our Oral Health Educator, trained as a CDHW and provides in-house prevention education to the parents while the patient is being treated. When he meets with the parents one-on-one, he makes sure to create an atmosphere of trust where they feel comfortable to express their concerns and ask questions about their child’s dental health. He also provides ideas and techniques for parents on how to improve their oral hygiene at home as well as nutritional tips. Prior to joining the PDI team, Pedro attended Sonoma State where he played soccer, and had the opportunity to travel to Europe and try out for a professional team. When he returned to Sonoma County he worked at Roseland Elementary as an Instructional Assistant working with children. Since he is born and raised in the Roseland community, one of his ambitions is to see other children to thrive and have an opportunity for a happy healthy life that is cavity free.
