The following is a brief outline of how our placement service works.

  1. Applicants are offered free initial job evaluation consultation. This allows both of us the opportunity to get to know each other and establish a working rapport.  We are interested in meeting with you whether you are looking for a position now or in the future. While the other dental agencies are no longer interviewing applicants "face to face", we feel it is necessary to build a relationship and our clients rely on this practice.
  2. Our goal is to save you valuable time in your job search. We know our clients and their offices well therefore we feel comfortable making a good match.
  3. We pre-screen positions for salary and benefits, locations,       days and hours,  office background,  and office philosophy.

Our counselors prepare you for the job interview and advise you on licenses, location, transportation etc. Our employment consultants are familiar with the job market, salaries and benefits and are active in the dental community.  Hygiene Associates gives the applicant a competitive edge to obtain the position they desire

We strongly recommend working interviews for all permanent positions under consideration. This is optional but will help you evaluate the office situation first hand.  While doing a working interview is not mandatory, many of our placements have found it beneficial.

Our permanent placement services are free to you and always confidential. You can count on our loyalty.
