    Dental Hygienist Careers

    Looking for a career that’s professionally fulfilling and financially lucrative? Dental hygienists are oral health professionals who provide preventative care for patients in dentist offices throughout the country.

    According to U.S. News and World Report, this profession is ranked #3 among Best Health Care Support Jobs and #32 among Best Jobs Overall. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for dental hygienists is booming. It’s a great time to get the education and training required to enter this great profession.

    What Do Dental Hygienists Do?

    Hygienists mostly work alongside dentists in their private offices, but they are increasingly becoming part of comprehensive health care services in hospitals and other provider systems. In dental offices, hygienists usually see the patient first and clean their teeth, removing plaque, stains and tartar by brushing, flossing and scraping. Depending on the practice, hygienists may also be responsible for:

    • Exposing and processing dental x-rays
    • Fluoride and sealant application
    • Athletic mouth guard fabrication
    • Oral cavity examinations
    • Counseling for proper oral health

    Performing these duties requires focus, great hand-eye coordination, critical thinking skills and extensive knowledge of the teeth and gums. Hygienists need to also have effective communication abilities as making patients feel comfortable is a crucial part of the job. A high level of professionalism and ethics is expected for anyone entering the field of dental hygienics.

    Starting a Career as a Dental Hygienist
