The changes over 20 years in dental hygiene
RDH
Lory Laughter writes, "2014 marks my 20th year of practicing dental hygiene. Anniversaries tend to bring out our nostalgic side as we reflect on the good, not so good, and changes the years have brought. In 1994 I would have never thought that today I would be writing a column for RDH magazine, speaking in public, or even still practicing clinical dental hygiene. Evolution in life, both personal and professional, is necessary for survival, and our careers are no exception — things are different in dental hygiene today vs. 20 years ago."

Lots of new patients, too few doctors
The New York Times
Dr. Danielle Ofri writes, "The first thing my new patient did when she walked into my office was breathe an enormous sigh of relief. 'It was so hard to get this appointment with you,' she said. 'It took weeks!' Unfortunately, my patient is not alone in her struggles. It is increasingly difficult for patients to find doctors and to get appointments with primary care physicians like myself, and it is likely to get worse, not better, as millions more gain health insurance under the Affordable Care Act."
