Love dental hygiene.
I got my B.S. degree from Columbia University so I could teach but realized that clinical was the way I wanted to go. My first dental hygiene position was for the head of the perio program at NYU central school.
I worked in NYC for 10 years until my husband got a job in Florida. As luck would have it, my friend and I took our Florida license as a joke -- but I got my license and kept it inactive until 1982 when we moved to Tampa.
I had to take some classes to update my license while at the class I met a person who knew of a dental hygiene position in Brooksville. Now let me just say I LOVED my job in NYC - however, my job in Brooksville was even better -- my boss retired after 15 years and we are still best of friends
