For those who don't know, I am a registered dental hygienist and have been for about two years now. (By the way, wall street journal just released the article that contained the top 200 jobs to have and dental hygienist ranked up there as #6. Whoop! Whoop!)
My job is great for many reasons:
Very flexible. Great for working moms who want to work full time (which is typically only 4 days a week) or for the moms that want to only work a couple days. This will come in handy in the future.
No Stress. You do not have to take work home with you, or even think about work when you get home.
Schooling. Not much schooling is required. The dental hygiene program itself is only two and a half years. I did college in three and a half years. Yeahhhhhh!
Now, enough about the job itself. I will say that I do not think I would be as happy about my job if I were not working at the place I am working at now.
My boss is awesome, and everyone (Fourteen girls. Yes...fourteen girls) gets along with one another. I can honestly say that I have learned more the past year in being at this dental practice than I have at other places I have worked. I learned a lot clinically, professionally, and lessons about life in general. I work with some awesome women that are great mentors to me as professionals and as wives and mothers. I am very blessed to be where I am today.
Here are some pictures of us girls having some fun at some of our outings!
