If you are a new grad...

Making the transition from dental hygiene school to private practice is nerve-wracking. While on one hand, it's nice to be independent of your faculty, on the other hand so many new pressures are introduced. 

You are probably thinking:

  • "Will I fit in with my dental team? Will they like me?" 
  • "What if I'm too slow? Will the patients like me, or will they notice I'm new?"
  • "I'm nervous about looking like I don't know what I'm doing. I want to prove I know my stuff and that I'm not just the 'new hygienist'!"
  • "Sometimes I feel alone. I don't really know who to ask for help because I don't want to seem like I am not confident."

The desire to fit in with your dental team, prove that you are a knowledgeable dental professional, and overcome the first-job jitters is real, and we've been there!


Maybe you're in your first few years practicing...

At this point, you've had the opportunity to gain some experience. You know more of what to expect and you've been able to adapt a bit. But something is still missing.

You may be feeling:

  • "Is this for me? I thought it would be different."
  • "Why have my skills plateaued?"
  • "I'm tired and not sure if I want to keep doing this."
  • "I do love dental hygiene, but I thought I'd have stronger skills by now."
  • "I'm not sure if I'm doing a good job. I feel alone in who I can ask for help."
  • "I think I'm burnt out, but I just spent money on this degree and now I'm stuck."

These are all normal feelings and are completely valid. The first few years of practice are full of growing pains, and burnout can set in quickly. As you settle into the everyday hygiene practice, you may be in search of more.

Here's what you need to know about RDH Optimize

  • On-demand course

  • 4.5 Hours of Continuing Education Credit Awarded


Q. Is this just another CE course? 

A. No. While you can claim 4 CE, this on-demand course was created with the goal in mind of helping newer hygienists succeed. You won't find this information in any CE course because this is the first! CE isn't our focus for the on-demand course; it's simply a bonus.

Q. What if I don't need CE credits yet?

A. That's ok! We decided to offer them as a bonus for those who do, but they are just an additional perk of the on-demand course. This is a transformational opportunity to learn.

Q. Can't I just figure this out on my own?

A. While you certainly can learn a lot on your own, it takes time (years). We're here to shorten your learning curve significantly, so you can focus on enjoying your career and excelling from day one.

Q. Why don't you offer this for free?

A. We want to share this valuable information, and we know that a price tag of free won't communicate how valuable this truly is. Not only do you gain exclusive information, but you also gain a supportive community, the time of multiple industry experts and a fun and interactive on-demand course.

Q. How long is the on-demand course?

A. The course is approximately 4 hours and is on-demand. You can watch the courses anytime you want and repeat them. 

Q. How long can I access the course?

A. Yes! We understand you are busy. The on-demand course is available for 1 month from the time your register.

Q. What do I need to bring?

A. Your computer, a notepad if you'd like to take notes, and an open heart and mind! This on-demand course will be informational and transformative!

Q. What if I'm not a new grad or newer hygienist? Can I still attend?

A. Absolutely! While this information will be geared towards newer hygienists, it never hurts to refresh on some basics and learn about loving your career again. We're happy to welcome you!

Q. What if I haven't graduated yet, but I will soon? Can I attend?

A.  You may attend if you haven't yet graduated. However, this information will feel the most relevant to you if you will be joining the workforce soon, or if you are practicing but feel like a new grad who want to excel fast and be a pro (already).
