Learn why the hygienist-dentist partnership is critical to oral health and office success, and how you can strengthen your partnerships.
From outside the dental industry, many may not understand the partnership between dentists and hygienists. To most, dental hygienists are the people who clean our teeth, and nothing more. However, in reality, a high-functioning dental office knows that a hygienist’s role is much more than that. Hygienists are providers, and when utilized to the fullest capacity, they are periodontal therapists—they use their education and skills to support the whole patient, and the patient’s whole health.
One thing is certain: Dentistry is a growth field. And even in a solo practice, dentists don’t work alone: Dental hygienists provide many of the critical services (like cleanings, x-rays, and periodontal maintenance) that patients need for optimal dental health. In fact, most patients spend far more time with their hygienists than they do the dentist when they come in for their cleanings.
Finding a new job as a dentist isn’t always straightforward. After all those years of schooling and finally passing your boards, a job search may be the very last thing you feel like doing. It’s not always easy to find the right match.
