Being that most of us are very limited in our activities these days, I went on to a dental hygiene social media page asking the question: Do you have any skills or talents that you can share with the rest of us? Since we are on lock down, and some people are working from home, I thought hey, let’s get to know each other.
My intention on asking this question was to possibly learn something new and share ideas. Also, it would be a great way for everyone to get some exposure, which could lead to additional streams of income for each other. There were lots of interested dental hygienists and many mentioned what their skills or talents were.
Here are just some of the things fellow dental hygienists said:
“I raise Monarch and Eastern Black Swallowtail butterflies”
“I try to turn junk into something”
“I crochet little beanies and stuffed animals”
“I like to make necklaces and bracelets”
Naomi Weston sent me an email in response to my query on the social media site. I sent her some questions and she was happy to answer them. I’d like to share her talents with you, I think you will admit she is pretty cool and she is a dental hygienist.
