INDIANAPOLIS – A report released Friday has found that someone, somewhere is actively taking steps to realize a lifelong dream of becoming a dental hygienist.
Even though the position would require a wide level of seemingly demeaning duties, such as cleaning people’s gums and treating others for gingivitis, the report found that an individual – possibly more than one – is presently enrolling in a 2-year associates degree program at a dental hygienist school, with the intention of actually turning it into a career.
“Past records indicate that there are live human beings who willingly overlook all other job choices in favor of dental hygiene,” read the report, “a job that requires one human being to delve intimately into the often-odorous oral space of another.”
“Wow,” continued the report.
Despite a host of other thankless duties involved – such as removing horrifying cavities and advising perfectly innocent strangers on how to maintain a fresh breath – it is estimated that, at some point, someone with an unfathomable passion for the practice will actually enter into a 4-year bachelor’s degree in order to gain further certification from the American Dental Association (ADA).
Meanwhile, further findings in the report indicate that this someone – whoever he or she might be, and wherever he or she may reside – could be aware of the position’s average start-out salary of $63,000.
