Recruiting, Hiring & Onboarding


Practice success is driven by people. And no function is more critical than the ability to attract, train, develop, motivate, manage and retain qualified competent people.

Today, challenges exist just finding people. The labor market is tight and the “pool” of available candidates is small and thus causing a lot of frustration for many dentists. Your recruiting and hiring efforts need a wholesale “refresh” for success including emphasis on a candidate’s attitude, emotional intelligence and “fit factor”, not just skills and experience.
