Dental hygienists are a powerful part of a dental team. They produce 30% of the practice revenue, are the reason more than 80% of new patients come into the office, and identify 60% of restorative treatment opportunities.*

Massachusetts-based American Dental Partners (ADPI) recognizes and respects the impact hygienists have on the business and the patients. As a provider of care, generator of revenue, and a chief draw of new patient and recall traffic, ADPI thinks the hygienist should be viewed as a partner in the practice. They are proud to have dental hygienists who are passionate about patient care.

The dental support organization has just released a new video highlighting three dental hygiene professionals from three of their leading affiliates. Kristen Salisbury, dental hygienist at Metro Dentalcare in Elk River, MN, Terri Johnston, dental hygiene mentor at University Dental Associates in Winston-Salem, NC and Luke Vandenboom, dental hygienist at Forward Dental in Franklin, WI, talk about why they chose to work for an American Dental Partners supported affiliate. Here are a few of the things they found at ADPI:

  • career with growth potential, not a dead-end or stagnate job
  • leadership training
  • promotions and vertical mobility
  • access to mentors, resources, technology and a support system
  • networking opportunities with hygienists and dentists at other locations
  • choices for medical, dental, life, and disability insurance, as well as a 401K with employer match
  • high-end patient care experience
  • friendly, professional environment leading to lasting patient relationships
  • family-like team.

While each of ADPI’s 22 supported affiliates across 21 states are unique in their doctor leadership and culture – they share a common goal of achieving excellent patient care through prevention, education, and service.

Recognizing that great team members enjoy being challenged, American Dental Partners encourages them to develop their skills. Whether it’s through continuing education, mentor programs, or one of their leadership opportunities, American Dental Partners is committed to providing an environment in which hygienists can continue to thrive and grow their career.
