Basically anything clinical. I am not able to answer questions about equipment repair. I am also not able to comment on manpower issues, salaries, or legal questions.
I actually hold a Dental Specialty Certificate in the ADA recognized Specialty of Dental Public Health. Dental Public Health, if you do a background check, focuses on prevention of disease. Dental Hygiene is basically prevention oriented and seeks to prevent dental disease (cavities, periodontal gum diseases, etc.) from occurring.
I happen at this time also to be the expert on Orthodontics here on allexperts. You can check the type and length of the answers I am providing as well as the feed back. I am a practicing orthodontist, and am constantly evaluating dental hygiene and referring patients back to their dental office to have the hygienist help them with cleaning and maintenance.
I also used to be co-editor of my Dental School Newspaper at the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry.
