Business 101 for Dental Hygienists
Mar 09, 2020 Season 2 Episode 9
Robert Thorup, DDS

This past week there were several comments about the wages being offered new dental hygienists in the State of Utah. They couldn't believe many docs were offering a starting salary of $25 per hour (sorry docs from other states, it's just supply and demand). In this podcast, I give the history of the wages of dental hygienists in the State of Utah, where they are currently, and why they are at an all-time low. All I can say to our hygienist colleagues is, WELCOME TO OUR LIFE AS DENTISTS! Welcome to the low reimbursement rates granted by dental insurance companies. Welcome to our decreasing wages in the dental profession. But, there is hope! It's all in the profitability of what we do. It's being a team player, and not an entitled professional. You want to discover the secret to higher wages in a hurry? Come to our training! Learn why my hygienists at Thorup Dental would never go back to an hourly rate again, and why their job satisfaction ranks in the top of their profession. It's just simple Business 101...that any office can learn and implement.
