Linda M. Douglas graduated in 1982 from the Royal Dental Hospital School of Dental Hygiene in London, England. She also studied dental assisting at the Eastman Dental Institute. After working in Periodontology at The Royal Dental Hospital and University College Hospital in London, Linda moved to Toronto, Canada, where she has worked in General and Periodontal Private practice since 1990. Her interest in xerostomia management has grown since encountering an increasing number of patients with this condition. Reading the literature on salivary function and the new paradigm, Minimal Intervention Dentistry, has raised her awareness of the significance of healthy saliva for optimal oral and general health.
