Talking Dental Hygienist Secret questions?
Being a dental hygienist is very much like being a nurse.
You must work under a doctor's supervision. However, there are no hygienist unions. There are professional organizations such as the ADHA who lobby for changes in the Dental Law and such things.
Dentists don't hate hygienist. Every dentist I have worked for has appreciated having a hygienist to do thier cleanings.
Hygienists often work full time, although many dentists don't work a 40 hour work week.
Full Time Hygienists do get full time benefits. My company provieds health insurance, dental insurance, sick days, personal days, vacation days and an optional 401 K.
I dont understand cash money?
Hospitals employ dental hygienists if they have a dental clinic.
No an assistant can not by law clean teeth
If a dentist doesnt want a hygienist, he or she probably doesnt have the client load to support one.
Why not be a DH if you are male?
We aren't discriminated against truely! We choose to be a hygienist, not a dentist. YOu need alot more schooling and$$$ to be a dentist. If I wanted equality with a dentist, I would have gone to dental school.
In 25 years Ive always been respected and treated fairly by the professionals that have hired me.
I would recommend that you look into some dental hygiene programs. They will provide you with all the info you need before chosing this career path.
