As their practices expand, dentists will hire more hygienists to perform routine dental care, allowing the dentist to see more patients. Also, as the large baby boomer population ages and people keep more of their original teeth than previous generations, the need to maintain and treat these teeth will continue to drive the need for hygienists’ services.
Demand for dental services follows the trends in the economy because the
patient or private insurance companies pay for these services. As a result,
during slow times in the economy, demand for dental services may decrease.
During such times, dental hygienists may have difficulty finding employment
or, if they are currently employed, they might work fewer hours.
