Small number of dental hygienists use mobile for professional purposes

Fewer than one-fourth of dental hygienists use their smartphones for work reasons, according to Kantar Media’s Sources & Interactions 2013 Study – Dental Hygiene Edition. Further, the number of hygienist who use these devices for work decreased year-over-year. Usage of tablets for work reasons by these professionals also remains low, though it has shown a small increase since we started tracking the device in 2011.
