WELCOME TO MY WEB-SITE
My name is Tracy Jacobs and I have been a Dental Hygienist for over 20 years. While I loved the clinical aspect of dentistry, I always knew I would transition my career. In 2012 I became certified to teach BLS with the American Heart Association. In 2017 I joined the Training Center Faculty with Chattahoochee Technical Community College (which has since transferred the CPR portion to RC Health Services). I love teaching my dental peers but I still had another calling. So in 2013 when a local study club was disbanding, I knew what I was meant to do. I contacted some of the former members of that club and founded the "Bridge Mill Dental Hygiene Study Club". The name was chosen because we met for the first couple of years in my neighborhood's (Bridge Mill) club house. After two years, our membership had increased to the point that our current venue could not accommodate us. We relocated to the Homewood Suites in Kennesaw. As the club grew, I noticed less and less comradery between our members. So now I have decided to stay true to the clubs roots and values being close knit friendships and networking. Instead of growing the members in one group, we are branching into chapters. Each chapter will have a maximum number of members from the local community. Our first three chapters are Canton, Marietta and Atlanta (Sandy Springs/Brookhaven area). We meet 4 times each year for a three hour session. A bonus to having several chapters is that if a member cannot attend their local meeting, they can make it up at another location. Next year we will be expanding so if we are not in your location, we will be soon. In addition to the new chapters, we are adopting a new name.
I wanted to include all members of the dental team and not be specific to one location. Our new name is Dental Education Solutions. Eventually I hope to be know far and wide as DES. As for CPR, I am still teaching. I actually work part-time as the Operations Manger for a company called Safety & Health Solutions. We teach BLS, ACLS, PALS, OSHA Updates and a Bloodborne Pathogens course. So basically, we am a "one stop shop" for dental professionals to obtain everything they need to stay up to date with the Board of Dentistry. Please explore my site, and well as SafetyHS.com and register with us. We look forward to growing, educating and helping you to provide quality care to your community.
