I mean, how many times am I going to have to write a paper on a piece of research and tear it apart finding the validity of the study?Why do I have to fill out seven pages about gingival description, AAP Classification, ASA Classification, occlusion, etc. Why, oh why, do we have all of the clinical competencies and requirements each term?

My instructors reminded me of why I was chosen for the program, of my fascination of dentistry, and how I wanted to be the “Patch Adams” of hygienists.
(If you haven’t seen that Robin Williams movie, you should! The students in the class above me assured me that feeling overwhelmed is normal; they went through it too. Every hygienist who has earned their dental hygiene degree made it through the program with effort and hard work. As the weeks and months begin to fly by, you will find your routine, and things will get easier.I just wanted to go home (I went to college across the state).Thank teeth for some upper classmates and truly invested instructors, I was talked off the ledge I had put myself on.Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition also features the Lexi-PAL Drug Guide, which covers 1,300 generic drug patient education sheets with more than 4,700 brand names.A scholarly article is based on original research or findings.If I were to ask you to think back to dental hygiene school, some would remember the feelings of being overwhelmed, being stressed to the max, and the tears that were shed.Others might remember the friends they made and the happiness they felt when hard work turned into successfully earning that dental hygiene degree.When I think back, it’s a combination of all of those things.For the students just entering the program or those who are several terms in, eyeballs-deep in osseous defects, periodontology, and research papers, I’d like to share a few words of encouragement.Being completely real here, the dental hygiene program is no walk in the park; it’s vigorous.During my first week of the program, I think I spent more time staring at my books and the assignments that were due, than actually sitting down and completing them.
