This is an exciting time to be a dental hygienist. You are in demand, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting 23,100 additional dental hygienist jobs being created this decade and a labor shortage caused in part by the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether you want to work for a private practice or a DSO, stay in one place or travel the country, work for a manufacturer, become an educator, or take advantage of any number of other options, the choice truly is yours, as our cover story this month details.
As you chart the path of your career, Inside Dental Hygiene is here to help with the most compelling content, including articles, ebooks, and webinars. We are especially proud to announce the return of the Hygiene Leaders CE Webinar Series, featuring important topics that certain states require CE on for licensure. The first offering of this series comes August 22, when Loren King, RDH, presents a webinar on chemical dependency and substance abuse.
