Addiction and Dentistry


Dr. Brown is a dynamic, engaging, and influential presenter who captivates audiences with her experiences treating “meth mouth” patients at a medium-security correctional facility in Northern California.

As a clinician, educator, and researcher, she brings a unique perspective to the topics of addiction and dentistry and helps audiences understand the impact of substance abuse on oral health and treatment outcomes. Her research on the effects of drug-use patterns on the severity of “meth mouth” has garnered international interest, was published in the Journal of the California Dental Association, and has positioned her as a leading national expert on “meth mouth”.

Champion of Evidence-Based Dentistry


Dr. Brown is among a growing network of dentists nationwide who have been recognized as a “champion of evidence-based dentistry” by the American Dental Association.

As a public health dentist and researcher, Dr. Brown promotes the application of scientific evidence to guide treatment decisions, enhance patient education, and improve clinical outcomes. She has provided more than a dozen expert opinions for the Dental Board of California (written reports) and has been an expert witness in administrative hearings for the Dental Board, rendering an opinion regarding standard of care based upon scientific evidence.
