November 30, 2015

Working in dentistry has its own set of quirks.

Don’t get me wrong, we love our profession and our patients, but if we can’t make light of our daily experiences, we may poke our eyes out with a sickle scaler! So here are the best dental memes of 2015. Some are funny, some more serious, but for the majority they are relatable!

For many of us, dental hygiene school was no walk in the park. It’s like that for a reason though: to make us the best clinicians we can be! I realize that now…

 

 

 

 

 

...and the patient needs radiographs to boot… Really though, a parent coming back with their child or a caregiver coming back with the patient is one thing. But seven family members coming back for a prophy is a crowd.

 

 

 

 

 

Because this doesn’t fit on a meme: Dental hygienists are college educated! Hygienists must complete a variety of college prerequisites including pharmacology, anatomy & physiology, biology, medical terminology and many more. Then complete another two to three years in hygiene school, not to mention pass multiple board exams. Dental hygienists are highly trained preventive specialists! We do much more than just "clean teeth!"

Hey, whatever it takes to get our patients to understand!

 

 

 

 

 

Of course there are valid health reasons a patient can’t lay supine. However, if you don’t sleep sitting up, you most likely can lay back for your dental appointment. The best treatment is given when we can SEE. 

 

 

 

 

Because we are professionals, dental hygienists keep a smile no matter what!

 

 

 

 

 

We don’t educate our patients on homecare for our benefit. And besides, we can tell.  

 

 

 

 

 

It’s actually sad that some patients care more about their looks than their health; however that’s why it’s our job to educate them! You wouldn’t put the time, energy and money into painting a house when the foundation is crumbling, so why use that logic when it comes to your health?!
