As a dental hygienist, I feel like it’s my duty to educate people about dental hygiene. If I were given a chance, I would probably tell Lindsay Lohan to bleach her stained teeth.

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
October is National Dental Hygiene Month (NDHM) and a lot of dental professionals, including New York cosmetic dentist, Dr. Catrise Austin, are speaking out on the importance of oral health awareness. “Despite the economy, oral healthcare can't wait” Austin said.
Many oral health care professionals share this value and Stacey Kemp, a 25 year old dental hygienist from New York is one of them. She thinks this is the perfect time to educate patients regarding oral health. Effective patient and dentist communication is important, and there is no better time to promote oral health than during the month of October.
A lot of dental hygienists are very passionate about their work, and 25 year old Stacey is one of them. “I have been a dental hygienist for 3 years, and I love the fact that my job allows me to talk to patients about oral health,” said Kemp. “As a dental hygienist, I feel like it’s my duty to educate people about dental hygiene. If I were given a chance, I would probably tell Lindsay Lohan to bleach her stained teeth.”
DentalHygienistSalaryGuide.org, and an information based website are featuring content recognizing the events commemorating NDHM. It recognizes that a consistent effort to educate and communicate with patients, starting with the efforts at October’s American Dental Hygienists’ Association, will be very beneficial to a lot of individuals. The website is one of the best resources on the internet for those interested in a career as a dental hygienist . It features an extensive article library that includes testimonials, tips about the dental hygienist career, and comprehensive local and regional dental hygienist salary data.
“Having good teeth can contribute a lot to having good self-esteem, so people should definitely value oral health. But the sad truth is that 80% of the public is still scared of dentists. It takes time, quality patient education, and proper communication to spread the message about keeping a healthy mouth,” Stacy explained.
Dental hygiene is a vital part of dental care. Without oral healthcare awareness, some people will continue to think that brushing their teeth is all that they need to do. DentalHygienistSalaryGuide.org aims to spread the word about dental hygiene during National Dental Hygiene Month, to do its part in helping educate people about proper dental hygiene.
