The outlook for dental hygienist jobs is very promising, as oral care continues to become more of a priority in maintaining good overall health. The link between the two is clearly defined these days, especially when it comes to oral cancer, gum disease and other ailments of the mouth. Even obstructive sleep apnea can be treated with oral appliances. Because of this, the Bureau of Labor Statistics is estimating that dental hygienist jobs will surge by 38% between 2010 and 2020.
This increase is more than twice the national average, which means that you should have an easier time finding high quality dental hygienist employment opportunities in the coming years. Many of these positions will offer the benefit of flexible scheduling. This is characteristic of most dental hygienist jobs. Another unique part about this occupation is that you have the opportunity to really get to know your patients since you’ll be treating them on a regular basis, which can be very rewarding in the long term.
