Dental Hygienist Position
« on: March 16, 2018, 11:05:55 AM »
My daughter just got her dental hygienist license and is looking to get started.  Willing to move if needed.  If anyone has a lead on a job please let me know.  Thanks.

Finding a full time gig is difficult right now. One of my daughters graduated 5 years ago out here in Virginia and worked as a temp for a year before finding a full time job in Dallas. She moved back here last summer and is still finding only temp work.

The good news is that temp work can actually keep a DH regularly employed and most employers will only fill a full time position with someone with work experience; the bad news is schedule uncertainty and no full time benefits.

Yeah, there are a few jobs in Middle and East Tn.  Problem is that they want experience.  She has a good friend in Dallas and has visited out there several times.  She graduated a year before her and says she can probably get on out there.   My brother is taking her to the Middle TN dental association meeting in a few weeks and will help her circulate her CV there.  Hopefully we can find her something.

Thanks!

Wife was an assistant for many years.  No full time benefits is not that unusual even when you become full time.  With the exception of D & P (or so I've heard) most dentist are low-lives and assume their young staff are theirs to exploited as they see fit.
