Dental hygienist needed Wednesdays, 8am - 5pm, with likelihood of Fridays becoming available, too. Must be able to handle a wide variety of patients, from small children to medically compromised elderly. Must be comfortable (or teachable) with using local anesthetic and doing root planing as many of our patients do not have the option of seeing a specialist. Usually there is not more than one or two RPC or PMA in a day, sometimes mostly kids. We do not expect our hygienists to market dentistry, and we do use amalgam. But we also have a cosmetic component that we are proud of and the clinic is relatively spacious, well maintained, and up-to-date (although charting and scheduling is still old fashioned paper, and we have not chosen to switch to digital xrays). The hourly pay is not top of the line, but we try to make up for it with job satisfaction and flexibility.
Current RDH license, preferably with N2O permit. Spanish would be a huge plus.
Additional Salary Information: Small xmas bonus
