Pedo

Could anyone tell me about the pros and cons of working in a pedo office? I’ve worked in a busy office for almost 6 years with lots of SRPs, so this is definitely a different setting from what I’m used to! Any comments or thoughts would be great 🙂 thanks!

If you enjoy kiddos, pedo can be really fun. Of course, some kids aren’t super cooperative, might have breakdowns, and the chances of getting bit is slightly higher. Just like treating adults, there are some challenges, they are just different challenges working with kids.
 
You’ve got to be patient and be a good communicator. I’ve heard some hygienist who work in pedo say that its more mental than physical compared to treating adults.
 
It is fast paced. Depending on the office, you may only have 15-30 minutes per appointment. For some, this fast pace is a positive thing, for others it may be stressful, it just depends on what you like personally. That’s where working interviews come in. Its not only a chance for the office to see if you are a good fit, but to see if its something you like. I’d say give it a try, you might love it!
