Job Description:

We have a part-time (Mondays) opening for a friendly, organized, professional Dental Hygienist. We are a high end fee-for-service private practice with a uniquely steadfast San Diego legacy, in operation since the late 1960s. Families, professionals, and retirees come to our practice to experience a more "traditional"-feeling dental home, honest assessments, warm service, patient education, and high-quality care. Most important to the patient following is friendly, gentle demeanor, followed closely by detailed attention to the technical RDH skill set. Regardless of graduation year, be ready to adapt to our model of dentistry with an open mind and willingness to learn & continuously improve, because that's the daily mindset of me, the owner-dentist writing this job advertisement! You will have a lot of fun with our supportive atmosphere, talented team, and legacy San Diego patient base.

Your main function will be to help our patients achieve and maintain optimal oral health by performing adult prophylaxis, periodontal maintenance, scaling and root planning, assisting the doctor in performing examinations, providing oral health education, and delivering home care recommendations. Your secondary function will be everything else to help keep our unique practice humming along. When your patient falls ill on short notice, be ready to help answer phones, sterilize operative instruments, take radiographs, general cleanup, etc. Help us continue to thrive and keep our special brand of enjoyable private practice alive.
