New Opportunities

I have been a hygienist for 14 years and I relocated 2 years ago to a new city. I have felt very blessed in having plenty of work with a higher rate of pay. In addition I have been able to experience teaching hygiene as well. I still enjoy chair side and only occasionally feel burn out. However, I have a wonderful job opportunity that will take me away chair side but still stay on the dental realm. Thus position would also give me great benefits and retirement and the salary would be the same but working 5 days a week opposed to 3-4 days. What are your feelings on taking it or passing it by.

I agree with Sally if it does not work out you can Always go back to clinical. What’re do you practice that you are getting these opportunities?

I would say give it a try! It’s a new adventure and you’ll never know if you don’t try it! If you don’t like it, you can always come back to private practice!

I say go for it. Most likely you would regret not doing it more than you would regret going for it. You can always go back to private practice or volunteer occasionally to keep your skills sharp. Change is scary and exciting when we don’t know how it will turn out but if you think there is a chance you could be happy in this new position and it isn’t an opportunity that comes along often then I say take the leap! I just decided today to relocate 4 hours away for a new job and it is so scary but so exciting. Good luck with your decision!

I say, take the leap! I recently changed things up and I am loving it. I am still chairside, well…reclinerside to be exact. 🙂 I am my own boss now, seeing patients in care facilities. It has been a lot of work and anxiety getting here, but the change has renewed my love of dentistry.
Go for it and keep us posted.

Great opportunity not to give it a try. I agree with others, you can always go back to chair side if you hate the new position. Don’t be afraid of change.

I agree with the others. It’s a rare opportunity, don’t look back with regret for not trying new opportunities. Chair side will always be there should you decide to return!
