Experienced hygienists needed to teach Preventive Dentistry skills to first year dental students

The Department of Preventive & Community Dentistry at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry is searching for individuals to teach preventive dentistry skills to first year dental students on Thursday afternoons (1-5pm) during spring semester (January through June). Note, some Tuesday afternoon clinic sessions are also available in May-June.

Most individuals who serve in this adjunct faculty capacity work part time in private practice and are interested in sharing their expertise in a different setting and building a teaching portfolio. Individuals will provide clinical instruction and supervision for first year dental students as they learn basic patient assessment and preventive treatment skills (probing, soft tissue exam, caries risk assessment, patient education, calculus detection, scaling and polishing teeth). The students see each other as patients first, then later in semester recall and new patients. Individuals must be able to effectively use the College of Dentistry electronic patient patient record system (AxiUm); training will be provided.

Current Iowa DH license/CPR certificate required. BS degree preferred.

Annual online training required for following compliances: HIPAA, OSHA/Infection control, computer security, etc. as well as Sexual Harassment in the Workplace (every 3 yrs).
