  • Current Basic Life Support (BLS) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certificate.

  • Dental hygienists must be willing to partner with the dentist, work well as part of the total dental team and should have good eye sight and manual dexterity, because they use dental instruments within a patient's mouth, with little room for error.
