The Pros and Cons of a Hygienist


I read an interesting article online from Carrington College on the pros and cons of being a dental hygienist ( What struck me – and this was an inspiration for starting this business – was how directly could address some of the “cons” and accentuate the “pros”.

The article pointed out that about half of all hygienists are part time. This was listed as a “pro” – flexible scheduling (if your employer is Ok with this situation). One of our goals is to provide that flexibility by opening your world to more dental practices – thus increasing work possibilities and flexibility – easily. Rather than going to each office or calling them individually, you can simply promote your availability via a calendar and be exposed to all participating dentists within an area that you designate. You can provide a resume or description of your experience and your salary requirements so a dentist has this information available.

A “con” was monotony. While we can’t do anything about duties performed, we can offer a mechanism for variety in the workplace. Different offices offer different “vibes,” collections of patients, etc. This might be just what is needed to offset some of the monotony associated with ANY job. New people, new places, new experiences. A chance to grow by being exposed to new ideas and being inspired by working with other professionals.

Remember that is free to join. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
