Believe it or not, when I was a kid I loved going to the dentist. Perhaps this is because I had very little actual dental work done. I was fascinated by the 3D models of gums and teeth sitting on the edge of the reception desk. The staff always greeted me with a warm, healthy smile.
As I grew older, the idea of working as a dental hygienist or dentist always appealed to me. I enjoy taking care of people. In fact, I’ve been told many times I need to look after myself more. However, as a mother, wife and entrepreneur, I am most fulfilled when tending to the needs of others.
When I was 18, I took advantage of the opportunity to explore the dental industry. I started working as a dental assistant and went on to study the practice at George Brown College. I embraced the chance to nurture patients, but I also enjoyed driving results for the dental practice as a whole.
From Dental Assistant to Dental Entrepreneur
Now, with 25 years of industry experience under my belt, I can say I have experienced nearly every level of the dental practice, from front to back. Along the way I’ve noticed a need in the industry and I decided to build Hire Personnel Solutions to fill that void.
Dentists are extremely skilled and knowledgeable practitioners. They are very good at what they do. But when you’re busy running a dental practice, when you’re doing the clinical work, you are working with your eyes down, hands in mouth, all hours of the day. There’s no down time. You’re treating patients; you’re driving revenue. This leaves very little room for you to focus on the business side of your practice.
Where are dentists supposed to find the time to hire and train staff, ensuring the right team members are in the right positions? How do you guarantee the office manager actually understands the operational factors of the business? Or that the front desk is taking initiative and completing the tasks necessary for driving growth?
Helping Dentists Stay Ahead of the Curve
My passion is to play a role in helping a dental practice come together. I enjoy coaching staff and helping the team recognize opportunities and improvements they didn’t see before. At the end of the day, my job is to help drive results; it’s to make the dentist’s job easier; it’s to make my clients happy.
This is why I created the Hire Personnel Job Board. It is designed to make the industry even more efficient, and even more effective. By taking advantage of technology to help match the right candidate with the right role at your dental office, you can focus other resources on the training, consulting and coaching you need in order to drive success.
Yes, it is a job board. But it also works as a networking platform. Think of it like LinkedIn for the dental industry. Candidates and dental professionals can post a profile and browse jobs for free, and potential employers can discover qualified candidates at an affordable rate – one that is much more cost-effective than hiring an actual recruiter.
Many practitioners are familiar with turning to the U.S. for these types of services, but I wanted to bring them to your own backyard. Hire Personnel is not only built to act as a resource in Ontario, but to accommodate candidates and employers nation-wide.
At Hire Personnel Solutions, the mission has always been to assist dental offices in becoming more efficient, productive and profitable. I want to help dental practices work smarter, not harder. And the Hire Personnel Job Board is the first major step to doing exactly that. At the end of the day, the goal is simple: to put more money in your pocket.
