In the early adventurous days of my career, I started out as a traveling hygienist — an amazing learning experience. By working with clinicians across the country, I was able to gain a variety of skill sets and learn from each dentist’s unique techniques. Throughout life, I have always tried to find solutions and fill specific needs for my chosen field. In dentistry, I saw a niche for hygienists who are flexible enough to fill in for the hygienist in dental practices — whether they were on maternity or sick leave or had a sudden emergency. Since hygienists are such an integral part of any practice, that sudden void can make productivity suffer.
