Hi My Name is Lynn Walker. Sometimes I feel like the
old lady of the group when it comes to dentistry, as
I have 37 years in the industry. I graduated from Los
Angeles City College’s dental assisting program
in June 1975 and have been an RDAEF, since taking the
second RDAEF program at UCLA in 1987. I have been fortunate
to have worked with some of the best Dentist and dental
educators in the business, which has allowed me the
opportunity to pass on my knowledge to our students.
I have been a dental educator for over 20 years and
have taught at Orange coast community college as well
as private postsecondary dental assisting programs.
I am the director of Dental Advantage, as well as a
lead instructor and office administrator. I have been
married for almost 24 years and have 4 children, 3 dogs
and 2 cats. In my spare time ( ha, ha ), I love to cook,
garden and just hang out with the family.
I have been in the dental field for the past 17 years.
For 14 of those years I have had the pleasure of working
in the education sector as well as in private practice.
I attended Southeast Missouri State University for my
undergraduate degree in business administration and
subsequently attended Roosevelt University to obtain
my MBA. Taking a major turn in my life, I then attended
Charter College and obtained my RDA .
have two great kids, both of them currently attending
college. My son is working toward a mechanical engineering
degree at UCLA and my daughter is working toward a
degree in Economics at UC Santa Cruz with hopes of
becoming a CPA. In my spare time I enjoy cake decorating
and spending time with my dogs Lexi, Toby, and Bailey.
Hi, My name is Danielle Ruiz, and I have been an RDA
for over 15 years. I have worked in the dental field
for over 17 years. I currently teach various classes
for Dental Advantage on the weekends, including Radiation
Safety, Coronal Polish, and Infection Control, among
others. I have 3 wonderful children, who keep me busy
as a stay at home Mom during the week! Laura is my teenager,
she will be in 10th grade this year, involved in Show
Choir, Softball, and many volunteer activities. Andrew
is my middle child, who has Autism and multiple disabilities.
He Lilyis my toddler, and well, she just keeps me busy
with all her exploring! Although I no longer work chairside
on a regular basis, I keep up to date in the field,
attending continuing ed courses on a regular basis,
as well as following any new changes pertaining to RDA’s.

the dental field, in any way I can!
