Rhonda Radford Adams is a Houston based artist and third-generation dental hygienist with 30 years in clinical and community health education. Growing up in her family’s pediatric dental office, she developed a niche for children’s dental health programming. Rhonda’s passion for art led her to the use of storytelling and hands-on activities to help reduce anxiety and fear of dental visits while promoting positive dialogue. Familiar with arts-in-medicine, she termed this style ‘art-in-dentistry’ to creatively present oral health education in the series, “The Hot S.P.I.T. Chronicles”. Each story is filled with clever adventures and creative activities that help prepare children and their caregivers for a lifetime of wellness!
