Kara Vavrosky, RDHEP, is a Co-founder and the Chief Content Officer of Today’s RDH. Along with her Co-founders, she saw a need for a dental hygiene digital publication that is for hygienists, by hygienists. Kara strongly feels that dental hygienists have a wealth of knowledge that should be shared to help other dental professionals and the profession as a whole, but needed a platform to do so. It is her goal to help enable those hygienists who want to use their voice to inform and educate their fellow hygienists.
Kara runs the popular Facebook page, Dental Hygiene with Kara RDH. In addition, she can be found on Instagram and Snapchat. Kara also founded the website DentalHygieneAnswers.com where hygienists cannot only ask but answer other hygienists’ questions so that information can be shared with all.
Kara is a writer of popular articles that share practical advice and tips for hygienists, all in an informative and entertaining way. Beyond light-hearted content, Kara writes researched articles on topics in dental hygiene that educate hygienists on best practices and current protocols.
A graduate of the Oregon Institute of Technology, Kara has a deep passion for spreading knowledge about the importance of oral health and how it relates to the entire body. Kara’s passion extends to helping other hygienists understand the latest protocols, products, and research — all with the goal to push the profession forward. Kara lives in Vancouver, Washington, with her husband Ben, and their rescued Chihuahua fur-babies, Bug & Ravioli. Beyond her love of dental hygiene, Kara enjoys spending time with her family, riding the Oregon dunes on her quads, and exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer.
Kara is a 2020 Recipient of the Folio Awards Top Women in Media in the Entrepreneur category. She is also a member of the Portland Business Journal’s Leadership Trust.
