Are you feeling a bit lost in the transition from school to private practice?

Making the transition from dental hygiene school to private practice is nerve-wracking. 

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!

While on one hand it's nice to be independent of your faculty, on the other hand so many new pressures are introduced. 

Have you ever had these thoughts?

"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."

"I have a job interview but I feel nervous and don't know what to expect"

These are all normal fears and are completely valid. 

That's why based on our decade of experience helping new grads transition into private practice we've created:

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). 

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 the time of multiple industry experts and a fun and interactive on-demand course.

Q. Is this just another CE course? 

A. No. While you can claim 5 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. How long is the 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 for?

A. The course is yours for 6 months from the time your register. If you need an extension, just contact us and we'll help.

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

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!
