Need to Get-away? Vacation? Maternity Leave? Medical Absence?
Here at DMDwhere we have built a website to help to connect dental professionals for short term absences in your practice, whether that is a maternity (paternity) leave, medical leave, or heck you just need some time away, whatever your reason, we have you covered.
As an owner dentist you work hard in your practice and maybe feel tied down at times. You deserve to have the best life has to offer, including that two week Italian vacation you have been postponing.
We match highly skilled locum dentists with your practice
We match highly skilled locum dentists with your practice so that you can take that much needed leave. After we connect you with a highly competent dentist we will create a great introduction to your practice, both with your staff and patients, so while you are away your mind is at ease.
Choose the scope of practice
You have the ability to decide the scope of practice that the locum dentist provides. A common example would be for a semi-retired locum dentist to cover a maternity leave and only perform minor restorative dentistry, dental hygienist exams and emergency coverage. However, we do screen for many other specific skills, such as experience with clear braces, extractions, implant restorations, endodontics, etc.
Using locums to decide if you are ready for an associate
Some owner dentists are looking to expand their practice, but are not sure if they are ready for an associate. Why not try out a highly skilled locum dentist to see if you have the patient load available before you make a hire. Many dental locum jobs have turned into very successful partnerships (associateships) as well.
Benefits of providing coverage outweigh closing your office or no leave at all
The benefit of hiring a dental locum is that you will have a continuously working staff, seamless coverage for patient care, and a full schedule the day you are back from leave. Absences, even for one week, in a practice tend to impact the practice for 2-3 six month cycles after the absence. By having a dental locum covering your office you do not miss out on continuity of care for your patients and no longer have “empty” weeks in your schedule due to your absence.
