Hiring The Right Dental Hygienist For Your Practice

Hiring The Right Dental Hygienist For Your Practice

When trying to hire a Registered Dental Hygienist, have you experienced the following?
  1. Uncertainty of where to post to attract valuable candidates
  2. A posting getting lost in the mix because it does not distinguish your practice from others
  3. Difficulty in finding time to invest in proper interviewing techniques
  4. Unsuccessful attempts at marketing the practice to attract new talent
  5. A qualified candidate accepting another offer due to a missed opportunity to hire
  6. Hiring a borderline fit that drains the practice resources
Poor hiring decisions are the most costly mistakes that practices can make. On top of costing tens of thousands of dollars in both direct and indirect expenses, bad hires can also cause irreparable damage to productivity, client relationships and team morale.

Great leaders appreciate the difference between an acceptable employee and the exceptional, A-team player. Teams who are well matched to their tasks invariably demonstrate higher levels of initiative and creativity, stay longer, and produce more. Finding excellent people is hard work and it takes strong convictions to hold the quality line under stress, especially if someone leaves unexpectedly.

Hygiene Mastery believes your people are your most valuable asset. Our coaches make hiring dental hygienists easy and successful for your practice.

Client Testimonials

  • "Chris with Hygiene Mastery is an integral, essential, and invaluable part of my hiring process for dental hygienists. Chris understands me and my practice and has an innate ability to find hygienists that have the skill set, knowledge base, disposition and personality that fit beautifully with me, my existing staff and my patients. As a hygienist and practice coach she is uniquely qualified to recruit and vet qualified applicants. She has the resources and connections to thoroughly analyze each applicant, performs the resume review and initial interview and shares her thoughts in a timely manner. I have 2 exceptional hygienists currently in my practice, both a direct result of her hard work and drive to find the right people. The amount of time and effort she has saved me in the hiring process is invaluable. I have been able to stay focused on patient care and the management of my office. Hygiene Mastery has excellent, or should I say mad matchmaking skills."

  • "Our timing could not have been worse than coming off the Covid mandated shut-down, knowing of the many sad stories of team members choosing to leave the dental field or hold hostage the owner dentist to return to work. Chris not only researched the current “hot place” to advertise a position, but then took on the glamourous task of receiving resumes, sifting through to find the winners whom she interviewed, and sent simply the best to us for our team and working interviews. Hygiene Mastery found us people who fit gracefully into our team personality, have the skills to make us a better practice, and the demeanor to let us embrace them quickly! Again, far exceeding anything I’ve ever experienced."
