Ronni came to SHE Photography while building a speaker packet and new website. She needed to find a way to bridge the gaps between the academic and health care worlds that she lives in with the world of those less fortunate that she treats. We had to come up with a way to capture some grit, while presenting her as educated, soft and thick skinned all at the same time. I think the images tell a beautiful story of a woman who is clearly passionate about what she does, educated, and willing to do what it takes to change the way the world treats those with substance abuse disorders.
Dr. Ronni Brown is one of a kind! She is a dentist and researcher working with inmates and has become the “go to educator and speaker” for meth mouth education. Because of her first-hand experience working with ” meth mouth” patients, she dove into the books to learn more. Her work is evidence based and researched and touches on the area of substance abuse and oral health that many dentists don’t understand or even know how to approach with their patients.
Ronni has perfected the art of bringing light and truth to the topic, and teaches dentists how to no longer ignore the signs of substance abuse in their patients and how to effectively treat and repair the devastating effects that drugs have on teeth! Ronni brings a genuine and authentic essence to a job that sometimes requires her to work with all types of people from all types of backgrounds. She is gentle and considerate and is a recognized expert in the field.
