Hi Kara! Love your website, it’s very helpful and I learn a lot!
I work as a full time dental assistant and I was thinking to work part time during the weekend while in hygiene school.
I was just wondering what your thoughts are on working while in hygiene school ?
Hi! Thanks for you kind words!
Anything is possible if you want it bad enough! However with that said, it’s generally not recommended to work during hygiene school. Many hygienists take out loans to pay for school and living expenses as the program can be intense. It’s extremely important to learn the information not just memorize and that takes time, so you need the time to accomplish that. I’m not saying it can’t be done, just that it’s not recommended.
