Dawn Whitehurst

Dawn Whitehurst joined NDP in 2017 to facilitate both the onboarding and continued relationship with potential and existing clients.  She is often the first voice or name you will see when you reach out to NDP!

Dawn received her MBA and BAAS from The University of Texas at Tyler as well as her nursing degree from Tyler Junior College.  She began her career working for an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon as a clinical nurse manager, implant coordinator, and primary surgical nurse.  After almost 22 years with the same practice, she transitioned to the educational arena of the field to teach aspiring medical assistants as an instructor with Concorde Career College.  Her firsthand knowledge of the dental industry combined with her many years of nursing and management experience make her an ideal resource to facilitate the many transition services NDP offers. 

“I strongly believe that every day is a new opportunity to learn as well as teach others.  Information exchange is vital to the success and advancement of any organization and I am driven by this philosophy; I am so thankful to be part of a team that is so passionate about education!”

Dawn and her husband enjoy spending time traveling and exploring the local art galleries, bass fishing, and sharing a great cup of coffee together!
