According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for hygienists exceeds the national average for other occupations by more than twice as much (11% growth versus 5% for all other occupations) by 2028. In 2018, there were over 219,000 hygienists employed in the US. It is expected that nearly 24,000 new jobs will be added by 2028.
A primary reason for such demand is the increasing awareness of oral health as it relates to overall health.
Opportunities are better for under-served areas, but also for those willing to work less than 40 hours per week. This is where DHConnect.biz can help and offer hygienists more opportunities for employment, but also for flexibility and a better work/life balance.
