Staffing your dental practice is a critical business challenge facing today’s dynamic practices. It used to be that a clinician could open up a practice and the odds of them succeeding were great. In today’s world that is far from the truth. There are many practitioners’ fighting for the same pool of patients. What will make them different? What distinguishes them from the rest? One key element is the patient experience.
I cannot tell you the number of times I have walked into practices where the practitioner is knowledgeable in their field and very well respected amongst their peers; however, patients were not referring or continuing as patient with the practice because of the team.
They are one of the most valuable assets to a practice. The next question to ask is, “Should a practice lower or increase the bar for their team?” If your answer is to increase the bar, do you need to provide additional training/tools to your staff, do you need to revisit your team’s dynamics, or are you ready to hire someone with all the desired skills?

Great experience with Strategic Practice Solutions! I needed a job asap and they were great! They scheduled me as much as I could handle working with the intention of finding me a permanent position. I loved how I was able to try out, so to say one of the permanent positions BEFORE accepting. Trish really looked out for me as far as what I was looking for. The whole process was a breeze as she was my middle man. I accepted a permanent position from one of the assignments. The process didn’t stop there, Trish has contacted me twice to see how things are going. She really makes sure her hires are happy and everything is going smooth. She’s there for you! Jessica is great also as she made sure I was working! They both are very professional and make sure all is well AFTER permanent hire. Great company! If you are looking for a company that finds you jobs, handles all the arrangements as far a pay , and checks on you long after you are hired, than Strategic Staffing is for you! Wish I had went though them years ago! – Debbie Scarcella – DENTAL ASSISTANT RECRUITMENT FOR PERMANENT HIRE
I absolutely love Tricia and her company. I have been with this company since 2000 until now! I have held down permanent positions throughout the years. However, I always find my way back! I consider Tricia not just as an employer, but a friend. She is always there whenever I need her. Tricia and her company are so competent and caring. I just love this company with all of my heart and no matter how long I may stay away, I will always come back!” – Steph Green, DENTAL ASSISTANT RECRUITMENT FOR PERMANENT HIRE
I started working with Tricia and SPS after they found me on IHire. They contacted me about temporary work and made it very easy for me to get started. I had been in the business for about 25 years at that time. Tricia knew that I really needed a permenant position but not with just any office. The staff at SPS kept me working and eventually I took a position on my own. Only my relationship did not end with Tricia. She has a wonderful insight into the types of people that work well together instead of how much they know. Her coaching and mentoring had a profound effect on my career as well as my life. Recently I began consulting with the team at SPS again and Tricia has found me the right office, with the right dentist for me to finish my career, which now spans 35 years. I have been forunate to work on both sides of her company and she works tirelessly to not only staff an office but to help it prosper and grow. As far as I am concerned, there is no better person or team to help any office reach and exceed their goals. – Denise O’Brien, Office Manager RECRUITMENT FOR PERMANENT HIRE
