New DDS prohibits “moonlighting”

I have always enjoyed working for two seperate dental offices. I’ve always worked 4 days in one office and 1 day in another. With three kids looking to be in college at the same time ..: I need to work. However, the dentist I work for 4 days a week just sold the practice. The new dentist handed out his office Manuel and it prohibits moonlighting. I did end up talking to him and tried to explain that I really needed the extra money and he seemed reluctant. Almost as if he would let me but didn’t like it. In my 25 years of experience I’ve never encountered a dentist that had an issue with a hygienist working at another office. Well, to keep the peace I ended up turning in my notice at my 1 day a week job. Has anyone else encountered this situation?

My current office does not allow moonlighting and a previous office I worked at made it very clear that moonlighting was not allowed. I can understand your frustration especially with how long you have been practicing. Maybe your new Dr can make up the difference that you are losing from your 1 day a week job.

I never could understand why offices won’t let you work elsewhere if they don’t offer full time. I would do what WarnerSL suggested and talk to your doctor about opening up another day of hygiene means he won’t allow you to make that day up at another office. If you need to work, you need to work! So it’s worth the conversation.
