About the Founder

Amanda Zubricki, also known as That Deaf RDH, is a registered dental hygienist, national speaker, and founder of her nonprofit That Deaf RDH organization. She graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. After graduating, she spent several years working with children who have disabilities. Amanda later returned to school to pursue a degree in dental hygiene at Northern Virginia Community College. She became a licensed dental hygienist in 2017 and had been practicing as a clinical dental hygienist ever since. Amanda was born profoundly deaf and wears hearing aids. Amanda started a nonprofit called That Deaf RDH (www.thatdeafrdh.org) with a vision to ensure every deaf or/and hard-of-hearing person has the financial and community support they need to achieve their goal of becoming a dental hygienist. She’s one of three recipients of the 2022 Today’s RDH Honor Awards. Outside of work, she enjoys developing and sharing content for her IG page @that.deaf.girl, speaking and advocating for inclusion in the general public and workforce, and inspiring individuals. She can be reached at amanda@thatdeafrdh.org.
