From the outside, Stoddard and Turner Dentistry looks like an ordinary dental office. Come through the door and you’ll discover an extraordinary experience where dental health providers care for patients like family as we save teeth and transform smiles! We are seeking an additional team member to join our fun-loving team, where work is meaningful, and efforts are appreciated! What is the role of a dental hygiene specialist? The hygiene specialist works in close collaboration with our dental hygienists. While there are a few procedures that can only be performed by the licensed dental hygienist, a myriad of procedures and services make up a patient’s visit when they have their teeth cleaned. The dental hygiene specialist manages those roles of the appointment that are not exclusively licensed to the hygienist in careful scheduling coordination with our office hygienists. It’s a fast moving, fun, conversational, and physically active role that includes: • Greeting / seating patients • Noting Medical history or registration updates • Taking cavity-detecting xrays • Attending Dr. Stoddard or Dr. Turner during the exam • Setting up the room for the next patient • Keeping instruments cycling through sterilization processes • Breaking rooms down after procedures • Making detailed notes while the Doctor speaks with patients • Providing oral hygiene instructions • Answering patient questions • Cross-training into other roles that teamplay to give co-workers a hand What are the top 10 foundation skills and qualifications essential to success? 1. Excellent writing skills: sentence structure, spelling and accurate composition so that clinical notes describing patient services and conversations are charted accurately. 2. Fast accurate keyboarding skills. 3. Quick and confident learner! Learning terminology, software, processes, and procedures requires focus, dedication, personal initiative, and drive. 4. Excellent conversationalist and appreciation for all people! If you have yet to meet a stranger and can find something to appreciate about most everyone, you’ll enjoy this position. 5. Well trained and geared to give the BEST customer service to every patient every time. 6. Stable work history and excellent references. 7. Excellent hand-eye coordination; fine motor skills and hand control. 8. Passionate desire to work in the healthcare field helping others. 9.

If you believe this position sounds like a perfect match to your interests and career goals, you are welcomed to remit your resume for review. Get paid to do what you LOVE! Compensation includes: • Competitive industry wages! Earn and learn: a candidate hired without dental experience will enter at a training wage and receive raises as skills reach proficiency. • 401K • Uniforms • Paid holidays • Paid vacation • Dental benefits • An amazing 4 day / week work schedule providing every Friday off!
