DirectDental Announces Partnership with Harbor Dental Society to Help Los Angeles Area Dental Practices Fill Thousands of Job Openings

Los Angeles, California – May 6, 2022 – As Americans emerge from pandemic-induced isolation, dentists across the United States are seeing patient demand soar. The increase in appointment volume has brought unprecedented challenges, with recruitment and dental practices struggling to keep up. A recent study by the American Dental Association reported that more than a third of dental practices hire staff to help them meet patient needs. A shocking 90% of dental clinics reported that hiring hygienists and dental assistants is more difficult now than before the COVID-19 pandemic. These challenges can impact patient care and dental health across the country. For this reason, DirectDental, an industry-leading dental professional recruitment technology company, makes it even easier for dental clinics to recruit temporary staff from its extensive database of dental professionals.

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

“The Harbor Dental Society continues to fulfill its mission, particularly in a difficult year, by identifying how best to help members deal with the growing staff shortage which has been felt by many and which is also limiting their ability to serve and take on more patients. How? The Harbor Dental Society has identified a qualified and experienced dental staffing service solution with DirectDental, meeting the staffing needs of members, whether full-time, part-time and/or dental staffing. temporary or hiring tips and best practices for success. Our members have already started to respond positively 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 the president of Harbour, Donna Marie C. Calima, DMD.

“Our goal is to give private dental practices the same tools as DSOs to staff their dental positions,” says Holli Perez, co-founder of DirectDental. “This includes programmatic job postings, an applicant tracking system, and access to affordable dental recruiters. By partnering with Harbor Dental Society, we can work directly with private practices to provide them with qualified dental professionals to fill their vacancies.
