Los Angeles, CA – May 6, 2022 – With Americans emerging from the isolation brought on by the pandemic, dentists across the United States are seeing patient demand skyrocketing. The increased appointment volume has led to unprecedented challenges with recruitment and dental offices struggling to keep up. A recent study from the American Dental Association reported that more than one-third of dental offices are recruiting staff to help them keep up with patient needs. A shocking 90% of dental clinics reported that hiring hygienists and dental assistants was more challenging now when compared to before the COVID-19 pandemic. Those challenges have the potential to impact patient care and dental health across the country. For that reason, DirectDental, an industry-leading dental professional recruitment technology company is making it even easier for dental clinics to recruit temporary staff from its vast database of dental health professionals.

The newly announced partnership between DirectDental and the prestigious Harbor Dental Society, which includes more than 749 dentists in 28 cities across the Los Angeles Harbor area, will allow the Society’s American Dental Association (ADA) and the California Dental Association (CDA) dentist members to quickly find and recruit dental temps from DirectDental’s database of more than 50,000 dental professionals. Access to DirectDental’s technology will also allow dental clinics to post their job on hundreds of job boards including Indeed, Ziprecruiter, Google Jobs, CareerBuilder, Monster, and more.

“Harbor Dental Society continues to meet its mission, especially in a challenging year, by identifying how to best help members with the growing staffing shortage that has been felt by many and that also limits their ability to serve and take on more patients. How? Harbor Dental Society identified a qualified, experienced dental staffing service solution with DirectDental, meeting members’ staffing requirements whether it be for full-time, part-time, and/or temp dental staffing or hiring tips and best practices for success. Our members have already started to positively respond to this new service benefit and this is how Harbor delivers value by taking on a challenge for our members and turning it into an opportunity for member success, “ says Harbor President, Donna Marie C. Calima, DMD.

“Our goal is to give private dental offices the same tools that DSO’s have to staff their dental jobs,” explains Holli Perez, Co-founder of DirectDental. “That includes programmatic job advertisements, an applicant tracking system, and access to affordable dental recruiters. By partnering with the Harbor Dental Society, we can work directly with private practices to provide them with qualified dental professionals to fill their office vacancies.”
