Any opinions out there about requiring candidates for dental hygiene licensure to pass an online assessment containing ethical dilemmas/case scenarios??
Some top medical schools are even requiring this type of assessment for students applying for admission.

We all know that we’re taking a huge hit thanks to dental insurance, but are we also leaving money on the table that’s our own fault? Depending upon your set up for submitting claims to dental insurance, you could be losing…Continue
