Description

Hiring a hygiene assistant to join our team! Our office is a privately owned dental practice with an amazing team working together to change the view of dentistry and help take care of those fearful of the dentist. We are located in North Central San Antonio near the Shavano Park. (North West Military and Huebner area) We owe a great deal to our assistants who go above and beyond for our patients because they truly care and look out for everyone. We are looking for someone like-minded to join our family. Someone with a great attitude and able to get along with multiple hygienists, doctors, assistants and front staff. The hygiene assistant is the glue of the hygiene department because we couldn’t do what we do without them. There is already a hygiene assistant to work alongside with, but we need additional help with the growing demand of patients trusting us with their dental needs. Qualities we are looking for are the following: positive attitudes, open-mindedness, adaptability, great communication skills, being respectful to team members, being a team-player and a problem-solver. Skills that are required are abilities to multitask, take impressions for whitening and night guards, taking diagnostic radiographs, knowing proper sterilization techniques, and having great chair side manner! In our office, we use Eaglesoft for notes, charting, and radiographs. On a day to day basis, a hygiene assistant helps with the flow of the hygiene schedule since we have 4 hygienists. They are always looking ahead to make sure the schedule doesn’t run behind for we are a busy practice. The assistant will be helping out where needed whether it’s seating a patient, taking necessary radiographs, handing off a patient to a treatment coordinator, presenting treatment, doctor’s exams, applying fluoride, applying topical for anesthetic, cleaning and flipping rooms, taking impressions, delivering whitening trays, or scheduling a next hygiene appointment. All of these skills can be taught and mastered fairly easily, especially if there is prior experience in a dental office. One of our biggest assets is our ability to provide sedation dentistry to allow those who are fearful of the dentist feel at ease while receiving quality care. That being said, nitrous certification is encouraged and if not already obtained, we can provide the certification for you along with annual continuing education courses. Our office has great benefits for full-time employees such as a competitive hourly rate, paid time off, holiday pay, health insurance benefits, monthly bonuses, and additional incentives. Office hours are Monday and Thursday 8-5, Tuesday 9-6, Wednesday and Friday 7-3. We look forward to you joining the best Dental Team in San Antonio!
