Chances are if you’re finding work as a professional through a healthcare temp agency, you’re not being paid anywhere near what you’re worth. Although the temp agency might help you find jobs and keep you as busy as you want to be, there’s a hidden cost…and it comes right out of your pocket.
Why can’t Registered Dental Hygienists (or any other health professionals, for that matter) find more flexible RDH jobs? The world of work is changing dramatically for professionals in every sector.
