Denise Rule MS, CCC-SLP
Hi, my name is Denise and I am a Speech-Language Pathologist based in Sacramento, Ca. I am the owner and clinical director at Dynamic Dysphagia Solutions, providing endoscopic swallow studies to Skilled Nursing Facilities and Hospitals in the Greater Sacramento and Northern California regions.
I earned my Bachelor's degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology, and my Master's degree in Speech Pathology at Sacramento State University. I completed my clinical internship at UC Davis Medical Center, went on to gain years of experience at California Pacific Medical Center and UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco, Ca.
Along with numerous CEU courses in assessment and treatment of swallowing and swallowing disorders, I received mentorship and training in Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) at UCSF Medical Center. I have attended, as well as mentored in, Susan Langmore's Foundation FEES Course in San Francisco. After honing my FEES skills and completing hundreds of exams, I completed SA Swallowing Services' Advanced FEES course.
My primary area of focus is assessment and treatment of dysphagia, though areas of special interest include trach & vent, head & neck cancer, end of life care, and dysphagia in medically complex patients. Now that I have moved back to Sacramento, I am excited to bring the skill set of FEES to my "hometown" and all the exciting discoveries that come with it.
