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 #business-management #dental-practice #dental-hygienist #teeth #business #dental #dentist #dentistry #business

Relocating Future Dental Hygienist... NC to MA or RI

I am currently in Dental Hygiene school in North Carolina. I am about to start my second year of the program, and will graduate in 2019. When I graduate, I plan to move to either Massachusetts or Rhode Island (somewhere close to the state lines). North Carolina is one of the stricter states, where hygienists are not allowed to provide local anesthesia or nitrous oxide, and I believe the northern states allow it. I also have heard that the tests are completely different.. How will this affect me applying for a license up there? I will be taking my boards clinical and written exam here in NC and am completely clueless as to how the process will work when I am ready to move... #rdh #dental-hygienist #relocation #dental-hygiene #dentistry #dental #dental-practice

Curious about Dental Hygiene and Dentistry.

I am a senior in high school and I'm close to applying to schools. But I want to become a dentist in the long run. but as of now that isn't until i finish my pre reqs to get into a dental school. So what I'm hoping for is that, wouldn't it be better if i went in for a dental hygiene major/ program got my AS and BS (I'm aiming for a BS so i can get the degree and the pre reqs for dental school) and started working after i graduate and then apply to dental school. AND before even that happens, where do I start? What school should I go to, which schools have a dental program or major that i can go straight into? What schools did you go into and how was the process? would it be better if i got the pre reqs before going into a dental hygiene program too? #medicine #dentistry #dentist #dental-hygienist #dental #family-dentistry #dental-practice #cosmetic-dentistry

Dental Hygiene?

I really want to be a dental hygienist. But I want to go to a 4 year college as I feel like that is the best option for me. Most schools in my state do not have Dental Hygiene as a B.S, only an A.S. Is there an equivalent major I can pursue (like BioChem) and then go for a year or 2 long program and become a licensed dental hygienist? #dentistry #dentist #dental-hygienist #dental #dental-hygiene #dental-practice

Hi, I want to be an Orthodontist but I want to first start with being a dental hygienist and move my way on up to be a orthodontist.

I have graduated from high school and will be attending a 2- year college but my plan is to be there for a year and might have to do some summer classes I believe and go to a four year college. I just want to know is this good route that I have planned for myself ? I'm also trying to find an internship that I can apply to get more knowledge of this profession. #dentistry #dentist #dental-hygienist #dental #orthodontist #dental-practice #cosmetic-dentistry

Another question for dentists: would you say that it is an absolute MUST for one to be an extrovert in order to be a dentist?

Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I am a pre-dental student at Virginia Commonwealth University. I was wondering if any dentists out there would say that it is an absolute MUST for one to be an extrovert in order to be a dentist. A little bit about myself... For the majority of my life, I have been what most would consider extroverted. Most of my friends would tell you that I am a very outgoing, social, and personable individual. I do well in social/group settings because it's easy for me to meet new people and hold conversations. However, as I've grown older, I've learned a lot about myself and realized that the way I like to spend my free time has really changed. Whereas the "younger" me would prefer to meet with large groups of people and talk all day and night, the 23-year-old me prefers to be alone and relax by reading a book or watching television. In other words, socializing can sometimes be exhausting and deplete me of my energy. Being alone has the opposite effect now; I recharge and regain my energy when I am alone. So I guess you could say that I have become more introverted over the years. But having that said, I still thrive in social settings. I just prefer to be alone most of the time. I am asking this question because as a dentist, you interact with your employees and patients all day, and then when you come home, you interact with your family. To even have these interactions is a blessing because without the support of employees, patients, and family, you wouldn't be able to do what you do! But my concern is that if I know that I am the kind of person that needs my "me" time, is dentistry not the field for me? Or do you somehow make that time for yourself? Will I just end up miserable and tired? Thank you so much for your time. #dentistry #dentist #dental #family-dentistry #dental-practice #cosmetic-dentistry
