Job Description:

Dental Hygienist Durant


Job Summary: The dental hygienist provides clinical and educational services under the general direction and supervision of a dentist; however, the hygienist may exercise independent judgment in deciding what treatment best suits the patients' needs. The dental hygienist is required to be flexible, resourceful, and adaptable in order to motivate each individual on their oral hygiene needs.

Primary Tasks:

-Performs chair side prophylaxis, full mouth debridement, sub gingival scaling and root planning by using hand instruments, and ultrasonic devices.
-Observes, reports, and charts all oral conditions and periodontal problems by examining the patients' teeth, mouth, throat, and pharynx.
-Places temporary restorations, desensitizing agents, sealants, remove sutures, and change periodontal dressings.
-Educates patients on proper brushing and flossing technique, nutritional and dietary counseling for control of dental disease, tobacco counseling, and care of removable appliances and bridges.
-Administers anesthesia and medications such as topical anesthetic, local anesthetic, topical fluoride gel, topical fluoride varnish, and may administer nitrous oxide as needed.
-Reviews patient dental history, medical history, medications, chart, and radiographs before initiating treatment.
-Practices infection control standards as set forth by company policy and procedures.
-Other duties as may be assigned.
Physical Requirements: Light work involves lifting no more than 20 pounds at a time with frequent lifting or carrying of objects weighing up to 10 pounds. Even though the weight lifted may be very little, a job is in this category when it requires a good deal of walking or standing, or when it involves sitting most of the time with some pushing and pulling of arm or leg controls. To be considered capable of performing a full or wide range of light work, you must have the ability to do substantially all of these activities. If someone can do light work, we determine that he or she can also do sedentary work, unless there are additional limiting factors such as loss of fine dexterity or inability to sit for long periods of time.
