About Me

Dr. Minn N. Yoon joined the University of Alberta, School of Dentistry in 2012 as an assistant professor following her PhD from the University of Toronto. The research from her dissertation focused on the oral health of vulnerable long-term care populations. Specifically, she has investigated the relationship between oral health status and the risk of developing aspiration pneumonia, explored interprofessional perceptions surrounding oral care, and the translation of evidence-based practice at the frontline of care provision.
