Subbing as a dental hygienist isn't as bad as I thought it might be. You're only in any given office for a day or two. You don't get caught up in any office drama. You aren't really expected to do anything other than clean teeth. And if its a total sucky office....chances are you never have to go back!
I've lucked out with mostly good places...everyone is friendly and helpful. The pay can't really be beat and I've been averaging about 3 days a week. No complaints right?!
Well I've discovered one flaw. Patient no shows and cancellations. They happen pretty often which I'm not used to...my old office in Ohio kept me pretty busy. Do you know how hard it is to kill 2 1/2 hours?? Hard. Sometimes you can sneak a little internet time....but you want to appear busy, they are paying you afterall. So here I stand...hiding in a corner....blogging on my cell phone. This is what my life has come to.....mastering the art of wasting time. Honestly...I'd rather be busy!
