Every dentist hopes to open their own practice, hire a staff of great employees, and retain them for decades. While we certainly hope this is the case, it’s unlikely that you’ll never have to interview new employees. And while some people come off very well during the interview process, they may actually be disastrous as dental employees.
No matter what the position is that you’re trying to fill, there are plenty of people who know how to interview very well but are not great employees. Luckily there are a few ways you can make sure that you hire the right fit for your dental office:
In the end, the best thing to keep an eye out for is your prospective employee’s communication skills and overall attitude. It’s important that they’re upbeat, enthusiastic, and positive. Additionally, make sure to follow up with any references listed by the employee and run basic background checks for anyone who will be working with insurance companies or handling money.
