Hi everyone! I am a recent dental hygiene graduate and just started my first day as an RDH this week. (Had family problems after graduating so just started practicing since school this week.) I got a temp position that could've turned permanent, but I turned it down for one reason: ethics. The RDH who quit last week left to another state and I am filling someone's experienced shoes. They are giving me 15 minutes to do a FM scaling and polishing. Regardless of their periodontal and gingival status, this is the treatment for everyone. I do perio charting for myself but the dentist doesn't care whether I don't go over medical exam or perio chart, EOIO, anything but scale. I spoke to the office about being new and should at least be given 30 minutes, but they are scheduling 4 pts an hour! Then they get mad at me on Tuesday for keeping the office late after hours. I know the program taught us how to deal with this dilemma, but I am concerned that if I report, I will also get in trouble because I've been working here for a week and can't afford to lose this job. Need to pay off loans, rent, bills! I'm afraid that my notes are evidence that I didn't give quality care and I am also responsible to have my license revoked. I am quitting today but I still want to report the office for negligence. The dentists don't care that I leave calculus when they do the exam after my "cleaning". Will I get my license revoked if I reported the office myself? Thank you!!
