re: Just bought a new TV. - ruzil
nice reviews: [quote]By Eric J. Smith on October 15, 2014 I was able to purchase this amazing television with an FHA loan (30 year fixed-rate w/ 4.25% APR) and only 3.5% down. This is, hands down, the best decision I've ever made. And the box it came in is incredibly roomy too, which is a huge...

re: Is it legal for dental hygienists to open a teeth cleaning practice? - ruzil
[quote]From a non dentist standpoint. I would go to a place that did not have a dentist present in a heartbeat. My opinion and faith of dentists , based on my personal experience in the Baton Rouge market, is very poor. I put dentists on a level with car salesman. I don't trust them and try to avoid...

[quote]quality dentistry was more important than money. [/quote] Agree 100% [quote]Ruzil has taken this thing so off track. He started out by painting hygiene as a money loser - I pointed out that it is a major earner in a well-run practice. He tried to say that I must be money-hungry and run ...

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...

re: Is it legal for dental hygienists to open a teeth cleaning practice? - ruzil
I never said you don't believe in treating perio. I simply questioned who would treat perio to illustrate the poor logistics of the ind hyg model. I wouldn't have hygienists in my practice if I lost money by their presence. If hyg didn't do any perio sealants bleaching procedures, that dept woul...

No apologies needed. What you describe makes no logistical sense: Patient gets appt with independent hygienist. "I need my teeth cleaned" Pt has heavy calculus b/u 4-6mm pockets bleeding on probing a and attachment loss. I'm sorry mr trench mouth we can't clean your teeth today because you h...

[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...

re: Is it legal for dental hygienists to open a teeth cleaning practice? - ruzil
[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...
