US Army Dental Health Activity - Japan


If this post is not allowed, I apologize in advance! I grew up in the military, and my family and I were stationed in japan for many years. Japan has sparked my interest! Hello! I'm a student from Utah College of Dental Hygiene, and I'm looking for dental hygienists to interview who work in public health care...prisons, charitable, underserved populations, assisted living homes, remote locations, many others etc. My class is doing a project on how Dental Hygiene has multiple career options. Please comment if you're interested in being a part! Thank you!
Greetings from WA. I heard that there is a position for a Sterilization technician at your clinic. I could not find in USAJOB website. Is this position still available?
