STEP THREE – Learn about Networks that Support and Promote Dental Public Health

Often finding a public health position in dental hygiene is a matter of being the right person in the right place at the right time. If you are sure that you are the “right person” for a position in public health, then you need to be sure that you are in the right place at the right time; this requires networking. Learning about new groups and meeting many types of professionals will help you think outside the box and perhaps create a job that doesn’t even exist at this current time. Associations that support health and coalitions of groups of people advocating for the same cause are where you want to start.
