Sara Beres serves as the Sheridan College Dental Hygiene Program Director. Prior to the director role, she served as a full-time faculty member in the dental hygiene department since 2008. She teaches preclinical dental hygiene to first-year dental hygiene students enrolled in the professional program. Her current teaching responsibilities also include Dental Anatomy and Dental Embryology and Histology. She has also taught Oral Radiology, Radiology Lab, Office Practice, Clinical Dental Technology, Dental Materials, Dental Materials Lab and Local Anesthesia Lab.
She participates in community service and professional activities and is a member of the Wyoming Dental Hygienists’ Association, the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, and the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association. Sara has also contributed as a chapter author in three editions of the textbook Clinical Practice of the Dental Hygienist, a textbook that is considered the cornerstone of dental hygiene education.
In her spare time, she likes to hang out with her husband, son, dog, 5 cats, 7 cows, 6 horses and 1 mule. If she is not wrangling all her “animals”, she enjoys being outside (hiking, riding 4 wheelers, riding horses, kayaking) in the Big Horn Mountains, working on her “cabin” and organizing whatever needs to be organized.
