So exactly how happy are dental hygienists around the country? That’s what we set out to explore through a recent Modern Hygienist survey where we asked hygienists from around the country to tell us about not only how happy they were in the practice where they work.

So exactly how happy are dental hygienists around the country? That’s what we set out to explore through a recent Modern Hygienist survey where we asked hygienists from around the country to tell us about not only how happy they were in the practice where they work.

We asked, on a scale of 1-10, with 1 being extremely unhappy and 10 being extremely happy, please rate how happy you are in the dental practice where you currently work.

Modern Hygienist readers answered…

  • 1 (extremely unhappy) … 4.68 percent

  • 2 … 2.98 percent

  • 3 … 4.26 percent

  • 4 … 4.68 percent

  • 5 … 8.51 percent

  • 6 … 5.53 percent

  • 7 … 12.34 percent

  • 8 … 15.74 percent

  • 9 … 21.7 percent

  • 10 (extremely happy) … 19.57 percent

 

“Most are happy! I was pleasantly surprised to read this especially after all charts,” said Anastasia Turchetta, RDH. “At the end of the day; happiness is a choice and as the song says, ‘Happiness is the truth ... .’”

So that’s one of the things you told us about your happiness recently, but we want to dive even deeper into your happy (or not-so-happy) thoughts.

Modern Hygienist has teamed up with Hu-Friedy to create the Happy Hygienist Project Survey. In this survey, we want to know how happy you are with your profession, your office, and your coworkers … and what could be done to make your day a little bit (or a lot) better.

Not only will your survey responses provide Modern Hygienist with some great editorial ideas, your responses will also provide data that we will analyze to produce an e-book focused on giving you and your fellow hygienists actionable ideas to improve your career satisfaction. 

As a participant, you will receive a free copy of this e-book as soon as it is published in September 2014. You will also have an opportunity to win a 10-instrument personalized cassette from Hu-Friedy!

Please click here to take the survey, which should take no more than 10 minutes of your time. Thanks in advance for your help!
