Abstract or Summary
  • This research project historically reviews literature relating to dental hygiene practice, more specifically dental hygiene independent practice movements. From the early days of dental hygiene to current legislative actions, material applicable to dental hygienists practicing independently is presented. Information relating to the public's perception of this field, dental hygiene's professional standing, alternative practice settings for qualified hygienists, legal provisions for dental hygienists within each state, and dental hygiene education programs and accreditation standards are important considerations of this issue. All of these components contribute to the dental hygienists' struggle for autonomy and the researcher considers each in her attempt to create a solution for this problem facing the dental hygiene profession. Challenges facing dental hygienists desiring to practice independently relate to complex issues which are met with much opposition. When change is pursued by one organization, it seems inevitable that another group is affected. This assumption appears to hold true for hygienists and dentists in regard to dental hygiene independent practice; therefore, points of view are presented from both professional groups.
