In the online quiz that I took it was also one of the careers that was chosen, in which it would be a good career choice for me. I think that this career really interests me, because it was something that i was already thinking about doing and taking that quiz really help me to to decide to look closer into it. I have found very interesting things over this career the more I look into it, I have really liked a lot of things about this career and it does have many good qualities. In this career most of the workers in this field are females” 95.9% of Dental hygienists are Female, making them the more common gender in the occupation,”(Census Bureau). Which is 170,28 more female workforce than male which is 7,312 male workforce. To me it does not make any difference if its a field of more females or males. I would still go into this career field, because it’s something that I’m interested in and it does not make any difference if it’s a field of more female or male. In the dental hygienist field “the median annual Dental Hygienist salary is $70,822, as of January 02,2018, with the range usually between $60,790-$80,615, however this can widely depending on a variety of factors,”( HR Reported data as of January 02, 2018). The hourly wage is $34, as of January 2, 2018 the range hourly wage is usually between $29 to $39. This is what a dental hygienist is expected to earn in this field. To become a dental hygienist one could live anywhere they wanted to, but some of the best places to that have better pay and the field is much bigger would be “Maryland, the state ranks seventh in the ratio of dental hygiene schools to overall population, and the average income is $74,780,” New York, California, and florida (Mark Hartley).In the field of dental hygienists the job is very secure “According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of dental hygienists is expected to increase by 38 percent between 2010 and 2020 – considerably faster than average.

If one was to become a dental hygienist you have the option to join a union or not. If one would want to join a union the “ADHA is the largest professional organization representing the interests of dental hygienists on a national, state and local level,”(About ADHA). I have also found many options from dental hygienist themselves that can be very helpful to me. Their opinions about this job can be helpful, because they show me want I would be expecting if I did decide to go into the field of dental hygiene. One of the dental hygienist talked about a typical day in their field of work “we typically start seeing patients at 8 in the morning, and see an average of eight to 12 patients a day. Procedures vary from general cleanings and periodontal scaling, which is more in-depth cleaning, to working on children and providing oral hygiene education”. One dental hygienist said “I personally deal with them in an understanding, calm and compassionate way. Empathy is huge,” another said, “I wish I knew what a personal attachment you end up having with each patient and their family and history. They don’t teach that, but hygienists really become part of their patient’s life,”(Interview with Dental Hygienist, Julie Spaans).In my research I have found many useful information that I did not know, it is very useful because it helps me get a better understanding of what comes with becoming a dental hygienist. It also provides one with useful information, such as salary, turnover rate for this career, options from dental hygienists themselves and where there is a higher demand for dental hygienist. It is all useful, because it helps with deciding if this is the right career field for me, and it and gives me more in depth information in this career. During my period of research I have found that this is the career that I want to go into and it does have many qualities that I look for in a career and that matches my personality.
