re: Is it legal for dental hygienists to open a teeth cleaning practice? - ruzil
All that makes sense except you left out a few things: taxes, equipping a room suitable for hygiene and any benefits the owner pays. The compensation is also a bit high. Now, those margins get a bit tighter when the hyg as to pay rent,buildout costs, insurance, cam, rec/asst salary and any pers...

[quote]You're fooling yourself if you think a hygienist can't look at a set of bitewings and do an exam and tell a patient they need to see the dentist.[/quote] I once had a hygienist tell a patient she had an abcess on a lower premolar that was obviously the mental foramen. I think if they want...

[quote]...and if we stick with the $80 fee, 12-15 patients, no x-rays, no exam, etc - are you still saying a small hygiene office couldn't net $600/day for the hygienist? [/quote] It most certainly could do that, that's not my concern. I don't think having a hygienist charge for radiographs tha...

[quote]At $80/cleaning (which is low),[/quote] In my zip $80 puts prophy fee in the 80th percentile. So that fee is realistic. [quote] why wouldn't the hygienist be able to take x-rays and give them to the patients to bring to their dentist?[/quote] So, the hygienists takes xrays only to pa...

[quote]If a dental practice can run at around 60% overhead, a hygiene practice could run well below that. [b]And a hygienist can easily net $1,500 $2,000 per day.[/b] I don't see the problem here. A stand-alone hygiene practice could rake in a LOT of money - easily more than a lot of dentists make. ...
