For Dr. Susan Maples the words “status quo” don’t even register. Susan leads a Total Health insurance-independent dental practice in Holt, MI, where she is leading the country in implementation strategies that connect the mouth to the rest of body. She and her dental team didn’t get here overnight. Susan brings her fervor for clinical education, advanced restorative dental expertise, a master’s degree in business/marketing, 30+ years of experience in private practice and a passion for helping people of all ages achieve optimal health.
Susan believes that the solutions to the growing health care crisis in the US begins with infants and children. Having survived (and thrived) from significant childhood illness and disability, Susan realizes first-hand how powerful children are in their ability to heal themselves and influence health change behavior in other family members. In 2012 Susan was named one of the top 25 women in dentistry and one of the top 8 innovators in dentistry, and recently received the Lucy Hobbs Mentor Award. She is most proud that she was listed as the #2 “disruptor” in dentistry, once again challenging the status quo. She is the author of BlabberMouth! 77 Secrets Only Your Mouth Can Tell You To Live a Healthier, Happier, Sexier Life and the developer of the Hands-On Learning Lab and SelfScreen.net. Susan is also co- investigator in an award-winning diabetes research study.
Total Health University is a significant part of Susan’s mission: To help transform the dental profession to take a much more significant responsibility in redirecting the declining health in America. We are so glad you team have chosen Susan as leaders in our profession.
