The last few months have been challenging and rewarding at the same time. I haven't been as vocal as I would like to be. It's in those moments of quiet that you can find the most clarity. It's a transitional period in my life. I am looking forward to all that 2017 will have to offer.
Each month, I am blessed with 100-300 new visitors to my website. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I wouldn't be here without the support of all of you!
What's new for me?
November is a time of reflection, gratitude, and family values. Did you also know that November is Native American Heritage Month?

The think beyond the prophy feature began August 2016 and I have had so much fun connecting with amazing professionals all over our country. My mission was to inspire and empower the readers of my blog but I often find myself feeling the same way after communicating with these professionals.
Think beyond the prophy is so much more than getting outside of the operatory. Thinking beyond the prophy is taking an out-of-the-box approach with providing care whether that be as a clinician or seeking alternative forms of practice such as entrepreneurship, academia, corporate sales, or research.
In our careers, we will have several transitions or chapters in our lives. The first transition in our professional career is the successful completion of dental hygiene school. What a sign of relief! It was one of the hardest periods of our lives but we made it through. Throughout your career you may find that you will go through varied transitions but never forget to explore your fullest potential....

Surviving dental hygiene school is one of the most challenging experiences any person can go through. Imagine completing school while juggling the responsibilities as a mom! What if you coupled that with being a breastfeeding mother? Our Guest Andrea, RDH is a total rockstar and she made it through. Listen to her interview with Jasmin and see what she shares. This will surely motivate and inspire all MOMgienists.
When we graduated dental hygiene school we were filled with excitement as we embarked on our new careers. Over time we all have experienced the lack of enthusiasm for our profession for various reasons including burnout, low wages, decreased clinical opportunities, difficult work environments, and etc. Listen to Christie and Jasmin review an awesome article that provides several steps to reignite your passion in dental hygiene.
