Dental Hygienists treat teeth. They promote a good oral hygiene and evaluate if the patient's teeth show any kind of disease that has to be treated. They also manage x-ray machines and can even provide some counsel in regard to dental care. They work in a dentist's office which is usually well lighted and clean. They must always wear masks and gloves. Dental hygienists usually hold part time jobs-it's not really time demanding- so they may find themselves in the need to hold multiple jobs. An associate degree in dental hygiene is usually requested. They must also obtain a license to work legally as dental hygienists. The average salary rounds the $65,000 per year.
