Job Hunting

In the last few years, one of the most difficult things with owning your own business is finding good employees.

The job market has been very tough and we have not avoided that difficulty.

If we schedule 10 job interviews, maybe 2 will actually show up. I’ve been open for almost 20 years and have never experienced so many 'no show' numbers like that.

Now you have to go through a lot more applications to get the right person.

One of the ways we find people is through Indeed. We set the parameters of what we are looking for and Indeed will send us tons of applications.

One thing we noticed is that the applications that we were receiving were from people with no dental experience.

We were receiving the wrong type of applicants.

A few weeks ago, someone from Indeed, called our office and noticed we were posting multiple job ads this year. He was wondering if we were receiving the kind of applicants that we wanted. Zhana told him that we were not receiving good ones and were thinking of not using the service.

He told us that he thought that was happening and wanted to help us with our job ad, so that we can attract the right type of people for our job opening.

He spent some time helping Zhana create the right ad and the quality of the applicants improved immediately.

We began receiving applicants with years of dental experience. When we screened them on the phone, they were able to hold a conversation and asked great questions. And here’s the kicker…when we scheduled their in-person interviews, they actually showed up.

Finding the right people to help you with a job is very important. This Indeed employee noticed we were having an issue and helped us with his years of experience.

Here at Dente, most of the team in the office have years of experience. All of our providers have over 10 years experience.

I have been practicing dentistry for almost 25 years.

With those years of experience, we have seen every possible dental scenario. We’ve also established great relationships with our specialists and have been working with each other for over 20 years.

Whenever you come to Dente, you will be treated by the same dentist…that’s me. And you will be treated by one of our 3 hygienists, who have been working at Dente for years.

That consistency is important to us. It creates trust and consistent care.

If you are looking for a dental office whose team has years of experience, please visit us at and call 773-292-1911 to schedule your appointment.
