David’s Answer

Based on what I see when I go to the dentist's office, you see patients before or after the dentist examines them. Look at teeth x-rays, poke at gums to diagnose gum disease, and do a cleaning--scrape tartar, floss, polish. There is probably some time spent preparing the workspace with clean tools and supplies, and some paperwork. Do the same for patient after patient.

But I'm not a hygienist.
