As the demands for dental care increase, dentists are entrusting many responsibilities for patient education and preventative care to dental hygienists. As many dentists hire dental hygienists for part-time work, a dental hygienist may have more than one employer, or part time. So the dental hygiene profession can offer you a great deal of flexibility. A dental hygienist’s duties include: cleaning and polishing teeth, instructing patients in good oral hygiene habits and care after dental treatment, and may include assisting dentists during examinations and treatments.
Sanford-Brown’s Dental Hygiene program includes supervised experiences in a clinical environment. So, if you’re attentive, caring, and would like the flexibility of working part-time or in more than one clinical setting, a career as a dental hygienist could be right for you.
