Thank you for the responses! Yes, I have talked with 2 hygienist who are now back on the main land that took job opportunities in USVI.

St.Thomas, but I do understand this is early to be looking. Since, of course, I do not have a place to live yet I am also considering St. Croix.

I plan to utilize this website fully to get questions answered about living there that no one here can answer.

I have heard that it is very hard for dental hygienist to "get busy" there. I have heard one say, "due to "island time" no one makes oral hygiene visits a priority and patients rarely show up". Do you find this to be true?

I have to make my appointments with my hygienist 6 months in advance. If I have to cancel, it is difficult to re-book. I always make it a priority! 😉

I don't think that would happen in Dr. Buska's office!

Hygienists are always needed. We get no-shows, but not much more than happens in the states. It all depends on the office. PM me your resume.

My hubby and I are relocating to St.Thomas in September/October and am looking for dental hygiene positions. Any information would be greatly appreciated. We are planning a trip to the island at the end of this month. Thank you in advance.

There are quite a few dentists around these days. I'd recommend visiting some offices and networking face to face.

@Leslie,

 

Hi, are you still working as an RDH in the VI? We are looking to relocate to ST. Thomas in about 6 months and would like to know about jobs on the islands, etc. Hope to chat with you or possibly you can refer someone who can. 

Thanks,

Rose

@rose-nobbley: I don't know about Leslie. That thread was from 2007! Lots has changed. I will say that Charlotte at Dr. Pomeranz's office (although I believe he has brought in new partners) is still there! When I moved to St Thomas in 1994, his was one of the few dental offices. There are several more now. I hope you are going to do a pre-move visit, as meeting the various dentists, etc. face-to-face will be important.
