A Remarkable Debut on 'The View'
by Natalie GutierrezRemarkable! That describes Sarah Tevis, D.D.S., a 2003 graduate of the Health Science Centerís Dental School. Tevis earned the Remarkable Woman Award from Personal Products Co., a division of McNeil-PPC Inc. and in October 2003 was invited to New York City to be a guest on ABCís national TV show "The View."
The Waco, Texas, native was born with ectodermal dysplasia, which causes abnormalities of sweat glands, tooth buds, hair follicles and nail development. Many patients undergo treatment for missing or malformed teeth.
As a child, Tevis struggled with the physical and emotional effects of the disease, but overcame them with the support of family and friends and the diligent treatment of pediatric dentists. Her childhood dentists helped inspire her to become a dentist and to do much of the outstanding work she does today.
