Sonya Dunbar, MPH, RDH, known as the Geriatric Toothfairy, is a dental hygienist, speaker, author, and entrepreneur, making a lasting and meaningful impact in her community and neighboring communities of Jacksonville, Florida and southeast Georgia. She delivers critical oral healthcare to marginalized and often forgotten communities of senior citizens and military veterans living in long-term care facilities. With more than three decades in dental care, Sonya co-owns Mobile Dental Xpress, a mobile dental company she founded after identifying this critical gap in healthcare services, and is delivering vital dental services to these underserved populations, many of whom have not received adequate dental care for months at a time.
