The experience you're looking for...

I bet on myself with my holiday bonus and purchased Thrive in the Op™. From refreshers of the basics in hygiene to what we didn’t learn in school, the nitty gritty side of dentistry, Amber’s course taught me to have confidence in growing into the hygienist I want to be. I have found a community of like-minded professionals that support, encourage, and teach. From the weekly coaching, to the detailed on-demand content, to Amber's genuine support of each of our personal goals, it's an investment I would make over and over again. We are real individuals “that show up like we are” and fill up to be the elevated dental hygienists that dentistry needs.
