Here at TGNA, we offer training modules about human resources, wherein we can help you hire and select employees to form your dental team.

A dental practice needs a synergistic dental team and to be able to have the staff you need, you have to do the proper hiring process. Hiring is a complicated part of a dental practice yet very important. It can be very costly at times and tiring. Therefore, your goal as a dentist and a business owner is to hire right the first time. With our training module, you get important components to complete your dental team and have the best human resources department.

In hiring dental employees, you start with advertising. You need to get the word out that you are looking to hire dental staff. With digital dentistry, you can easily use the internet to post your ad. Make sure to put enough information (job description) to attract potential applicants.

The interview process is the next step in hiring dental employees. Pre-select questions for the first interview to avoid bias. Conduct the second interview to narrow down your candidates and ensure that your questions will allow you to gain viewpoint of the candidates’ personality. Personality is one of the most important factor that you need to consider in hiring because you can’t train personality.

After you select your dental staff, conduct an orientation and continue with training your employee. The orientation ends with a performance evaluation and this will depend on your company’s standard performance for a specific position.
