Three Reasons Dental Hygiene is a Good Career

Follow your passion for a career in healthcare and make a difference.

Dental Hygienists rank as the #5 best Healthcare Support job and #32 on the list of top 100 jobs by U.S. News and World Report. Being ranked favorably by this leading authority is great and we have three more reasons a career as in dental hygiene could be a great choice for you.

  1. You can move from student to professional quickly. With a dental hygiene associate degree from Pima Medical Institute, you could be working in your field in as little as 23 months. With competitive salaries, the investment in your education could pay off quickly.
  2. You will do hands-on work on a daily basis. While many occupations require you to spend all day stuck behind a desk, dental hygienists are up and moving around the office interacting with patients and coworkers all day.  You will clean and polish teeth, take x-rays and molds and even perform some administrative tasks.
  3. You will help others improve and maintain their health. Oral hygiene reaches far beyond just having a nice smile. Research shows that poor oral health can lead to serious diseases and issues with your overall health. This job provides you an opportunity to help people stay healthy from the inside out!

So, if you like helping people and are looking for a career that can provide stability, flexibility and a living wage, dental hygiene might be right for you.
