Let’s get straight to the point. Yes, a dental hygienist can be an independent contractor, but if only he/she appropriately follows the rules.
Due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, many people across all industries are finding themselves without a job. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself or waiting for everything to blow over, now is a great time to get ahead of the competition and build an amazing resume that will help you land your dream job.
We are at the midst of a crisis. Positive cases of COVID-19 seem to be rising each new day, and everybody is greatly affected by this pandemic. For nearly two months, businesses, including dental practices, were in lockdown to prevent the disease from spreading.
Not taking care of your oral health can leave you with something a lot worse than bad teeth. From diabetes to cardiovascular disease, neglecting dental hygiene can result in all kinds of dangerous health conditions, including COVID-19.
In March 2020, ADA recommended that dentists postpone all elective procedures to stop the spread of COVID-19. As the pandemic gets more under control, dental surgeries throughout the US are reopening their practices for routine care. Texas, Colorado, Illinois and Georgia are just some of the current 42 states where dental offices are open for elective procedures.
Even during these uncertain times, one thing’s for sure — dentistry is never going to be the same again. After the coronavirus severely impacted countries throughout the world, it became clearer than ever the importance of having strict safety protocols in the healthcare industry and making sure they’re enforced.
As the number of COVID-19 cases rises, dentists and healthcare care providers should remain informed about the best clinical practices to counter this pandemic.
