Dental Hygiene Jobs
I would like to know if any of the islands hire Dental Hygienest. I noticed that there are dental assistants, but have not seen actual hygienest. If anyone has any information on this, please let me know!
Unfortunately there are not any hyg. schools here...I'm not sure about St. Thomas but here on St. Croix the average salary is about 50,000/ year. I get paid on commission so my salary is up to me! There are other offices that pay hourly and salary. If you have any more question please feel free to e-mail me directly.
But I am not quite ready yet! I will be graduating in about a year in the dental hygiene program, and my husband really wants to move out there. I really just wanted to make sure they hired hygienest on the islands as opposed to assistants.
Could I possibly keep in touch with you for future references?
I am a licensed RDH here in the states and have extensive training in periodontics(having worked for the head of our dental school's perio dept.) and several periodontists.We are seriously considering relocation to St Croix,coming next month.How is the current job market for RDHs or do I need to look for other work...willing to do any waitress/housekeeping/nanny etc.Any input and advice is greatly welcomed and appreciated!A.H.,RDH,BS
Good afternoon my wife is a dental hygienist and were very interested in relocating to the VI. We currently live near Washington DC.
I was hoping to establish a contact in the dental field on the island that could assist with information with any potential openings for a dental hygienist position. We would be very grateful & willing to provide a finders fee for information leading to successful hire.
Thank you so much for your help!
I am moving to the USVI in approximately one year! The one way ticket has been purchased. That was the easy part! It is never too early to start the job hunt!
I am a highly motivated, independent and a self sufficient person. I have over 6 years of dental assisting experience. I will be completing my last year of dental hygiene school on scholarship in May 2016. (I will be submitting resumes across the islands in the coming year for a more formal introduction)
My question: Do you know of any dental offices that foresee an opening in the coming year (i.e. retiring hygienist, hygienist moving away) on the islands? If so please contact me or keep me in mind! 😀
things can change monthly down here. the dentist i go to had a new hygienist last year-3 months after my last appointment with them, they moved back. it can be very transient . people think they want to live here, months-years later they want to go back.
can not predict the future-but you can look in the local phone book for dentists-be aware of which island you want and which island the dentists are on
