The purpose of this study was to investigate a reliability and validity of the Korean version for measuring tool the job embeddedness of dental hygienists. The survey was modified and revised to fit into Korean culture. A survey was conducted with 274 dental hygienists in dental clinics. The data was used for the analysis of the study, using PASW Statistics 18.0 and IBM SPSS AMOS 7.0. The factor analysis showed that the job embeddedness of the dental hygienists was composed of three elements, namely `organization fit`, `job connectivity`, and `personnel relationships`. The validity of the model examined by a confirmatory factor analysis satisfied most of the relevant requirements. All of the factors had the conceptual reliability and variant extracted index above the minimum requirements, ensuring reliability and concentrated validity. The Cronbach`s alpha shows a good reliability. In conclusion, it was proven that dental hygienist`s job embeddedness measurement tool has high validity and reliability. Further, this study could be used to improve dental hygienist`s long term working, and the growth stage of dental clinic.
