Future Dental Hygienist

I am thinking about going into school to become a dental hygienist. I would like to go for my bachelor’s degree. I was just wondering what there is out there that many people enjoy about dental hygiene? Also I was wondering what different types of fields there are out there? Any information would be super helpful! Thank you!

There are many career paths you take as a dental hygienist besides working clinically in an office. Here is a link to a good list:

Clinically, you can work in a general practice, in a pedo (kids) office, in public health, in a perio office, as just a few examples. What each person likes is different for each hygienist. Generally speaking, many hygienists enjoy the interaction and relationships with their patients, no matter what kind of office they work in.
