It’s a great way to add flexibility and reward to your dental career! Temping for Complete Dental Staffing is an opportunity to choose the ideal working style for you. Our temporary staff enjoy keeping their skills sharp while earning extra money. Those with decades of experience enjoy setting their own schedule, and in some cases, dentists can breathe easy due to eliminating the stress of owning a practice while continuing their dental careers.

We specialize in the recruitment and placement of general dentists, specialty dentists, and hygienists. This focus helps us keep up on industry trends and hone in on the best opportunities for our staff. We work with offices that have both temporary and permanent needs, so whether you are looking to supplement your schedule or find a new practice on a part-time, full-time, or permanent basis, we have opportunities that may be a fit for you.

Compensation will vary based on the position and the current market needs. We keep a finger on the pulse of compensation trends in our clients’ regions and always strive to pay our staff competitively. We also work with you to negotiate pay rates that are a win-win for the office and staff. So if you’re willing to drive a little farther, work a different shift, etc., there may be additional compensation we can negotiate for you!

The first step is to interview with one of our recruiters. This is a great opportunity for us to learn about your experience and what you are looking for in a position and for you to learn about us. There are some brief onboarding and credentialing items that you’ll complete, so you are ready to work in any of our client offices. From there, we’ll be in touch with assignments and opportunities that we think are a match for you. While you are never required to work a certain number of shifts through us, we hope our process makes it easy for you to accept assignments and work that fits your schedule. We handle all the confirmations, paperwork, and back-end administration so you can show up, work, track your time, and get paid through us!

We work with dental offices that have permanent positions open and actively recruit for these roles. When going through your introductory interview, we’ll learn about what you’re looking for in your next position and employer, including schedule, culture fit, office philosophy, compensation, etc. When we have an opportunity we think you might be interested in, we’ll reach out to discuss. Should you want to be presented to the client, we do it confidentially and assist with any next steps, including scheduling initial phone screenings, coordinating working interviews, negotiating offers, and assisting with any pre-employment paperwork needed. We help navigate the whole job-seeking and hiring process for you and the office to make it as easy as possible. 

We are passionate about dentistry and helping staff find great offices to work in. We focus on providing a quality experience and truly want to get to know our staff and find the best opportunities possible for them. At the end of the day, a win for you is a win for us! We firmly believe in doing what’s best for our clients and staff, so you’ll never be just another temp or just another worker to us. We know the value of our staff after years of industry experience and take pride in offering the best temping/staffing experience in the market.
