Beverley Woods has given thousands of people a reason to smile over her 39-year career, having worked in both general practice and public health as a dental hygienist, consultant and as a member and past president of numerous dental hygiene associations. In 2009, Woods founded Gift from the Heart, a non-profit organization and annual one-day event that brings together dental hygienists across the country to offer no-cost dental hygiene services to those unable to afford or access care. The event has provided over $1.2 million in no-cost dental hygiene care to vulnerable populations over the past 10 years.
