Dental Hygienist Full-Time
Hello Prospective Employee!
We are looking to expand our Dental Team with the RIGHT person. At our dental practice we recognize that EACH member of the team is VITAL.
We are here to promote Oral Health. We educate our patients so they can better care for their teeth and mouth and ultimately avoid unnecessary dental issues. We recognize and stress to our patients the important part oral health plays in the OVERALL health of an individual. Not every patient has perfect oral health. Our job is to meet them where they are and help them understand that there are opportunities and choices they can make to better improve their health and ultimately their life.
We use DENTRIX and DEXIS- digital x-rays, Dentrix time clock. We are fully digital. Email/fax communications, two bathrooms, five operatories. Willing to update instruments/equipment as needed.
What to expect from other Team members?
By the time you greet your patient, that patient should have been receiving e-communications for today’s appointment, showed up early to update insurance, family file info, and health history. Outstanding balances will be handled by our front staff
