Margie Arnett

Patient Leader

I'm an Assistant Professor, author & keynote speaker who is owned by 7 furkids. I regularly tweet healthy reminders and announce recent health research on @MargieArnett and specifically dental health on @LLUDentistry. I teach medical/dental professors how to use social media in a course to further engage students. I presented research and workshops about using social media in the health industry at the National Smokeless and Spit Tobacco Summit, Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco, International Conference on Addictions Research & Therapy, the National Conference on Tobacco or Health, the American Dental Education Associations annual session and I was the 2013 keynote speaker at the Association of Dental Educators of Europe. I am the daily voice of 5 dental offices and the voice of a few non-profits social media presence: Dr. Earl R. Crane's Children's Dental Health Clinic of the Assistance League of San Bernardino is my favorite cause, and I volunteer there. They provide dental treatment for uninsured children for $20. My motto is to, "Mend the world within my reach."
