Course Synopsis: In our course, we will reveal secrets and strategies that allow teams to (1) expand the candidate pool from which they hire, (2) find more like-minded candidates, (3) increase the quality of applicants, and (4) onboard quality hires to set them up for long-term success.”


Having a hard time finding good people to join your team? Unable to get quality people to apply for a position? Ever had candidates no-show for an interview? Ever been fooled into hiring someone, only to quickly realize you’ve made a big mistake?


The post-COVID world forced many shifts in the labor force, and the market for good candidates has only become more and more dire. The same old tactics dental offices have been using for years just aren’t going to cut it any longer if you really want to find the team members that are going to help you take your practice to the next level. How can a dental office think outside the box and learn from proven corporate strategies to find and train its dental dream team?
