With over 40 years’ experience as a dental hygienist in private practice, public health, education, and government, Casey is an internationally-recognized speaker and extensively-published author. She first began speaking about periodontal-systemic links in 2003 and founded the first publication on oral-systemic science, called Grand Rounds in Oral- Systemic Medicine. She is a pioneer in implementation of periodontal-systemic science, medical-dental collaboration, and providing primary care services, traditionally delivered by physicians and nurses, in dental offices. Casey was an Assistant Clinical Professor in Periodontics and Director of Education of the International Centre for Oral-Systemic Health at the University of Manitoba, leading the development of the first comprehensive curriculum about oral health for non-dental healthcare providers. This won for the University the prestigious William J. Gies Award for Outstanding Innovation. She was accepted into the National Speakers’ Association in 2008, and she has been continuously voted among Dentistry Today’s Top 100 Clinicians/Consultants.
