“ADHA is a huge supporter of dental therapy.”
“It’s a great opportunity for a new provider to help address the immense access to care issues we are seeing in the United States.”
“Dental therapists are not intended to replace dentists, they are meant to compliment dentists.”
“When you have all of these different providers practicing to the top of their scope, you have a much more efficient environment.”
“Hygiene was how I established my patient base.”
“Now we get more calls for job openings than there are dental therapists in the state.”
“If you are thinking about it, I would go for it.”
