Most business today, including dental practices, are run using a factory assembly-line model. Active participation makes so much more sense. This means, as a hygienist there at least 3 (and probably many more) way to be active, productive and financially well compensated while making meaningful contributions to patient and more importantly your own health.
Patti DiGangi, RDH, BS and Shirley Gutkowski RDH, BSDH are known for bringing their mid-western sensibility to today’s health issues with an eye towards the future. With decades of experience in clinical dental hygiene, writing about it, speaking on it, and pondering over all aspects of it, Patti and Shirley challenge dental hygienists to reach higher levels of revolutionary thinking to meet 21st century patient needs, wants and expectations. Beware their infectious excitement, it can be catchy.
