Professor Matloff brings more than 30 years of experience to her classroom, where she loves ‘watching the light bulb go off’ when a student either understands a concept or grasps a clinical skill.
“I am able to bring real world experience into the classroom, as well as the knowledge and expertise of the scholarly work that I have achieved. This communicates to my students that the dental hygiene program at Mount Ida is a quality program, led by experts, active in shaping the profession of dental hygiene.”

Dental hygiene has consistently been reported to be one of the 10 most popular careers. “The field allows for a variety of work site settings, providing a professional environment that appeals to many. I find it an empowering profession. No matter what happens in one’s life, a dental hygienist will always be able to find a job and be self-supporting.”

Professor Matloff has served as a consultant to the industry as well as a writing as a contributor to the Foundations of Periodontics for the Dental Hygienist and Patient Assessment Tutorials.

She is a member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, the Massachusetts Dental Hygienists Association and holds a Massachusetts Dental Hygiene license as well as a Dental Hygienist Anesthesia Permit.

Professor Matloff teaches Dental Hygiene Theory, Medical Emergencies, Clinical Dental Hygiene Theory and Dental Ethics and Practice Management.
