Dental Hygiene Jobs
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?
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.
@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.
