My question is why a dental hygienist is considered self-employed or an independent contractor? It seems to me this is a gray area. We cannot work without a dentist and his office, tools, and patients. He directs the process of the day as well as start and stop times. Yet, they pay us with a personal check and pass the tax liability onto the substituting hygienist. Can you help me understand why I am not an employee? Would it be beneficial to start my own business to ease the tax burden or would it just increase my tax liability?
