“We’re thrilled to welcome these two talented and experienced individuals on our team,” says Lampron. “Their commitment to improve the health of underserved populations is evident in their approach to the work, and commitment to excellence – which is exactly what we need as our roster of clients continues to expand.”

Deborah Cutter Reiling, Project Coordinator

Cutter Reiling has more than six years’ experience in community health management – a role she continues as Dental Administrator at Comprehensive Community Health Centers (CCHC), a Federally Qualified Health Center in Northeast Los Angeles, CA. Previously, Cutter Reiling served as CCHC Community Dental Home Coordinator for the 21st Century Dental Home Project through UCLA; and as a (still active) participant in the UCLA-First 5 LA Quality Improvement Learning Collaborative. The UCLA-First 5 LA project was Cutter Reiling’s introduction to AFL’s innovative work, which she first experienced as a Collaborative participant and later as faculty member. 

“What an incredible opportunity,” says Cutter Reiling, whose interests lie both in creating opportunities for oral health innovation and learning from them. “I’m looking forward to working with AFL to help health centers grow their quality improvement capacities, and improve patient care and outcomes.”

Adds Lampron, “Deborah’s knowledge and experience in health center management – and as a member of one of our client collaboratives – bring tangible experience to client teams, and strengthen our internal project team.”
