1. They are highly trained:
Dental hygienists have varying degrees of higher education, ranging from an associates degree to a masters degree.
2. They are not immune from dental complications
We all still need regular dental cleanings and sometimes they get cavities, too! While they are highly educated in prevention and maintenance of their oral health, sometimes they experience dental needs also.
3. They do it to make a difference
No one would sign up for this career, go through the rigorous curriculum or many expensive board exams and tolerate the daily wear and tear on their bodies if they truly did not love this field.
