Hiring for your dental practice can be stressful and challenging. While you want to find the right people, it is not as easy as it seems. A bad hire can cost your practice, both in terms of lost revenues and dissatisfied patients. You want talented and qualified people who can ensure the success of your practice. This is where Nationwide Dental Opportunities’ (NDO) expertise can make you successful.
Finding a Dentist to Hire Is Not Always Easy
Hiring a General Dentist or Specialist can be difficult for a number of reasons. Not only do you need access to the best candidates, but you also need to establish a hiring process. All of this can be difficult for a busy dental practice. After all, there is a reason why you are hiring. Bringing on another dentist is a decision that can change the course of your practice. Since there are so many steps to the dental hiring process, it is hard to envision a scenario where you would not benefit from professional help.
We Help You Set the Process Up
NDO can assist your practice with all parts of the dental associate hiring process. From the very beginning, we are with you every step of the way. The first challenge is coming up with a hiring strategy.
This starts with developing your requirements and coming up with the right job description and posting. It also begins with planning and preparation, and our experts could advise you on the steps that you need to take to get ready for the hiring process.
They always say that a candidate only has a few seconds to make a first impression with their resume. The same holds true for job descriptions. These days, candidates have many choices, and you want to make your practice stand out to them. NDO could assist you with drafting a position description that accurately and compellingly portrays your practice and the job in a way that grabs people’s attention.
Our Network Brings Candidates to Your Door
Then, you need access to a large network of potential General Dentists or Specialists. Hiring a dental recruiter is only worth it if they can bring you qualified associates who stand out among their peers. Just delivering a stack of resumes is not enough. At NDO, candidates come to us because they know we have a large network of dental practices with which we work.
Our large network does not just mean that people will submit resumes for your jobs. We also have people in the industry who are not necessarily looking for a job. These are known as passive applicants. Since these associates are already productive elsewhere, they will improve your applicant pool. We can reach out to the right people to match them with your job.
Dental associates work with us because of the help that we offer them in the hiring process. Not only do we match them up with positions, but we also help them refine their job-seeking skills, such as their resumes and interviewing. This will land solid associates on your doorstep.
We Can Screen Resumes for You
Ideally, your associateship posting will receive many resumes. That is a blessing, but it also means that you would need to spend time going through scores of resumes trying to find the best candidates to interview. NDO will help you with that, pointing out the best possible associates from the applications. We know dental associates because we have worked with so many, and we will use our expertise to help you find the people to interview.
Finding the right candidate is only part of the job. Even after you have landed on the associate you want to bring on board, you would still need to make an offer. Then, you would have to negotiate with your potential hire to reach an employment agreement. NDO can assist you with that process.
Our work will make it more likely that your chosen candidate will accept your offer. We are a go-between, using our industry expertise to explain to prospective candidates why your practice is the right fit for them.
Our Hiring Experts Allow You to Use Time Effectively
When you have an open position, you have the twin needs of having someone on staff quickly while being able to use your time effectively. A slow hiring process means that you lost out on revenue in two ways because it takes your time and keeps you from finding someone who can add to the profitability of your practice. There is an incentive for speed, but the hiring process also needs to be done right. Since you may not frequently hire associates, you may not have the know-how on your own to get this done.
Ultimately, this is difficult to do on your own, and looking for an associate can be time-consuming. Our guidance will improve your process and could give you better candidates quicker. Simultaneously, we can reduce the level of stress you are facing with the hire.
When looking for a dentist or specialist for your practice, you do not have to waste any time spinning your wheels only to find the wrong candidates. Contact NDO, and let us partner with you to ensure success on your next hire.
