Day 3: Tell us about your J-O-B
Work? On a Saturday??
Well thankfully I'm not actually working today, makes talking about it a bit more bearable!
As you already know, or maybe you don't, I'm a dental hygienist.
Yep. That's me. The mean lady at the dentist who picks and prods at your teeth and yells at you for not flossing. At least, that WAS me. For seven years. When I worked in private practice.
These days I do a more non-traditional job and I love it!
I work for a Health Center on a dental program for kids called Pro*ject Rea.dy Smil*e.
Everyday I go out to Preschools and Early Education Centers throughout the KC Metro and do dental screenings on kids 6 weeks through 6 years of age.
I also get to do presentations about brushing your teeth and eating healthy foods along with my trusty sidekick Allie the Alligator.
