Keys to Success

Whether you’re treating nervous patients or managing a team of other dental hygienists, interpersonal and communication skills will be vital to your success in the dental hygiene field. Attention to detail and dedication to careful, precise work are everyday requirements as well. Another valuable skill is being able to teach patients and the public about the importance of oral health. In certain dental hygiene careers, you may also need to educate new and experienced dental health professionals, healthcare providers, and researchers about dental hygiene topics.
