Why work for us?
1 Trust & Respect- Doctors view our hygienists with a high level of trust and respect.

Our hygienists are highly regarded and valued as comprehensive clinicians who partner with our doctors in providing patient care.
2 Community & Opportunity- We offer peer-to-peer mentorship and support. You have a team of hygienists available and working alongside you, to collaborate with and support you as a partner. We also have a dedicated Director of Hygiene who is here to support each hygienist and to be your voice to our management team.
