Sometimes, the hardest decisions to make are the ones that revolve around your career.
I know that when I was a hygienist and looking for alternatives to practicing in a dental office, I worked through stacks of ideas before settling on myofunctional therapy. I totally get it when hygienists tell me that they're not sure how to make changes to their hygiene career. Hygiene is a unique career because it doesn't have a built-in advancement system that rewards hard work, or even a way to get to the next level. No matter how hard you work, and how much your patients love you, you're never going to be promoted to being the dentist!
Hygienists want to clearly understand how they can integrate myofunctional therapy into their career paths, and what it'll mean for them in terms of hours and income. Myofunctional therapy can be anything from a full-time business to a one day a week opportunity to help patients in a whole new way, while increasing your pay and of course, getting away from the chair.
Which is why I created my new Career Path Evaluation program. These structured 60-minute calls are designed to allow us to find out exactly where you are in your hygiene career, and to identify what factors are pushing you to look at alternatives. Whether you want to incorporate myofunctional therapy on a part time or full time basis at a dental office, or even start and run your own practice, an evaluation will help you determine if this is the best field for you and your future plans.
