Dental hygiene is a dynamic and challenging career that offers team work, personal growth, fulfillment, and extraordinary benefits, and it is the perfect career for me.  As a licensed health care professional, the dental hygienist is a valuable member of the dental team providing patient care. I love the thought of knowing I made a positive impact in a person’s health. Also, opportunities for part-time work, flexible schedules, and good pay make dental hygiene a desirable career choice for me.
