Your everyday as a dental hygienist

As a dental hygienist, you meet many different people, whom most are very grateful for receiving help. Sometimes you will encounter patients who have limited finances, dental fear or other difficulties making their treatment more challenging. It requires for you as a dental hygienist to be professional and not let your own feelings and needs guide the patient’s treatment. Offering good, qualitative dental care, teaches us to listen, communicate and help. In our clinics, we want our dental hygienists to offer a wide-range treatment spectrum.  We want our dental hygienists to possess the necessary skills to work closely with the patient’s dentist for best dental care. We help our dental hygienists to evolve so that they can offer patients team-dentistry. In team dentistry dental hygienists do full examination, preventive care, periodontal treatment and easier aesthetic treatment.

What a dental hygienist need to succeed with us

To succeed in an industry and market that is in constant evolution, it requires that we’re adaptable. We need to be genuinely interested in developing and expanding our competence at pace with market changes. As a dental hygienist with us, you will need to manage and evolve with changing patient behaviour and needs. With us you have to be able to adapt to and work with newer and more modern equipment and materials. In addition, administrative skills are needed to communicate the patient treatment in order for the patient to receive his or her entitled benefits, for instance health insurance or social security. You need to be able to plan your treatment and how you dispose of your time in order to optimize your appointment register.
A good dental hygienist will need social skills to build relationships with patients and to earn their trust. You need to be interested in your reputation and actively work for good reviews, both among patients and colleagues. You need to work to keep the patients you receive, and have them recommend you further. We expect and request our dental team focus on preventive care and treatment and continuously follow up our patients. As a dental hygienist with us you need to be truly interested in the profession and have a desire to evolve and improve, also through courses and further education.

Specific requirements for foreign dental hygienists

In order to submit an application, you need to provide proof of:

  • Mastering the local language at C2 level or higher
  • Local license to practice as a dentist

As we all know, communication is the key when it comes to success. The majority of younger Scandinavians in urban areas speak English in addition to their mother tongue, but health personnel is obliged by law to keep the patient records in the specific country’s first language. We do want all our co-workers to be successful and further develop with the organisation, and we’ve noticed that they who master the country’s language at C2 level or higher, reach success much faster.
Your license to practice as a dental hygienist also has to be approved and translated. In Sweden it’s called license (legitimation), and you’ll find more information from Socialstyrelsen. The Norwegian equivalent is called authorization (autorisasjon). SAK provides further information on the matter.
At the moment we do not provide language courses or relocation packages, although we’re planning to do so in the future.
If you fit the description above, please contact us via the contact form for further information.
