Is it true that a Dental Hygienist can open their own practice?

I am attending a hygiene program and I've read many article stating that hygienists can open their own practice in Colorado. I was just wondering if that was entirely true? I

In addition to Neil's response, I would suggest contacting the state agency that would license hygienists in Colorado. They should be able to provide you with the necessary information of what is required. You would also want to talk to an attorney who practices business law and they can provide tips on putting together a business plan (you would need this if applying for a loan), an accountant and reach out to your bank or other financial institution to find out what they would need from you, assuming you would need to apply for a business loan. Consider the Small Business Administration (Colorado or the federal government programs for small businesses).

Good luck.

Neil recommends the following next steps:

If you're interested in a move to Colorado, you may want to contact some of the hygienists practicing there for more information about setting up a practice there.
