Rosemary Bray has spent more than 30 years employed in the dental profession, with experience in general dentistry, periodontics and orthodontics (18 years).
Her last 16 years were as Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator for a quality San Diego orthodontic practice. She left in 1998 to begin her self employment as a speaker and consultant in Orthodontics and Dentistry.
She was one of the founding members of the Pacific Coast Treatment Coordinators Study Group and also of the San Diego Dental Office Managers Study Club. Rosemary recently proudly celebrated her 43rd anniversary in teeth!
She taught oral hygiene and dental care to 400 children from 37 different countries at the International Community School of Zurich for two years while she and her family lived in Zurich, Switzerland for a 4 year period. A tooth brushing program was instituted in the primary school curriculum as a result and her program is still on going today. Those kids are brushing!
She has lectured nationally and internationally on behalf of the American Association of Orthodontics (AAO), numerous orthodontic companies, various dental societies, ortho and dental study groups and for her own workshops and seminars and has worked on every continent except Antarctica! In 2011, she was honored to be the Staff Program Chair for the AAO Annual Session in Chicago. She is a feature speaker at the ADA, the Yankee and the Hinman Dental meetings this year.
Rosemary is the Past President and a Board Member of the San Diego Children’s Dental Health Association (a non-profit dental clinic in San Diego which treats approximately 500 indigent children each month). This is a last resort care facility which relies on donation alone to operate. In 2007, they began to finally provide orthodontic care as well as quality dental care!
She is a visiting Clinical Instructor in the orthodontic department of the University of the Pacific, School of Dentistry in San Francisco where she donates her knowledge and experience to the future orthodontists studying there and she speaks at many ortho schools as a gift back to the profession.
She has been on the Board of Directors for the American Association of Orthodontics Foundation ( AAOF ), which supports and promotes education and research in orthodontics. Rosemary also served on the Education Committee for the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists ( PCSO ) and assists in planning Annual Sessions for that society.
