Mentorship and happiness in clinical hygiene

May 7, 2024
Too many dental hygienists wonder what's next too early in their careers. It doesn't have to be this way. Amber Auger wants everyone to be as happy in clinical hygiene as she is.

Amber Auger has noticed that many dental hygienists feel like their clinical career alone isn't enough—they wonder what they can add on. She thinks this is the wrong question to be asking. Her own situation with carpal tunnel led her to explore some answers. She was forced to have to look for "more."

As a result, she's become a consultant to dental hygienists actually enjoy their chairside careers. She wants to help RDHs avoid some of the pitfalls that can lead them to wonder and seek what else is out there. She admits to her own hard times, and how she overcame them.

She assures you that your dream career is out there, and it might be right where you are now. Here's how to find it.
