I've been a Dental Hygienist for 20 years and believe I have just burned out. This year, I let my certification laspe and have not completed the necessary courses and training for my portfolio. Is there other opportunities and options for me? I'm not qualified in other fields, not that computer literate (Hygienist don't need to be). Anybody have any suggestions or have gone through something
similar?

Thanks for your feedback. I took Dental Hygiene in College and am not qualified for anything else. At 42, I feel very secluded and also feel that I don't even have the experience needed to get a minimal wage job and start at the bottom in a factory or retail. I'm hoping someone has suggestions for somthing related in my field where I don't need to practive dental hygiene,

check out jobs in the dental insurance and supply fields....pay is not bad, and with your qualifications you would get a good pay as well...and you can always learn more about computers..not that hard anymore :) Good luck! and dont give up...
