Asking dental hygienists for their thoughts on the present, future of their profession

By Kevin Henry, editor in chief

August 4, 2020 -- Some of the most popular articles in recent weeks on have dealt with dental hygienists and their views of their profession in the weeks since COVID-19 became a part of our everyday lives.

With that in mind, today we are launching "RDHs in the real world," a series asking dental hygienists for their thoughts on the current and future states of their profession. You'll hear what they have to say in their own words as we bring you articles over the coming days on topics ranging from personal protective equipment to the best advice they have heard and given.

If you're a dental hygienist, we invite you to fill out our 10 questions. No matter your age or years of experience, we want to know your thoughts. Each question is open-ended so you can type what you like. We are asking that each answer be limited to 50 words.

We are excited to launch this new venture and share some great words of wisdom in the coming days.

If you have any questions about this survey or suggestions for future surveys, drop me a line at
