Which of the following sounds like you?
• You got involved in dentistry in order to care for patients, but your office is so fast-paced and you are so overworked that you can’t give them the care you feel they deserve.
• Are you considering or have you left an office because of bad dentistry or because you weren’t given the tools needed to improve your patients’ health?
• Are you tired of asking for what you need to adequately do your job and not being heard?
• Have you recently completed your training and certification for becoming Registered Dental Hygienist and are looking to join a patient and team member-focused practice that provides exceptional dental care, using state of the art technology, in a warm, friendly, and pampering environment?
