Sometime's it's hard not to be selfish. For example, when an office wants to hire our best sub, and we just let them go. No wage garnishing, no buy-backs, just happy offices and happy hygienists,and more work for me!
Helping You Hire is a service that is rapidly growing in Direct Dental. Offices looking for a hygienist or assistant call us and tell us what they are looking for. We send a few girls that we think fit the bill. It's fun to match up personalities and experience with what the Doctor is looking for.
How it works is this: Offices will have a couple (or a bunch) of girls sub and fill in, almost like a working interview, but sometimes the hygienist or assistant doesn't even know it's an interview! When they decide they like someone, they give them another try. When they are ready to hire they let us know, and they get connected with their sub. If both parties agree to the plan, the hygienist or assistant works for 7 more days as a sub through Direct Dental, then they start right in as an employee of the office that hires them. And if you don't want to wait, there are options for that too!
It's really nice for the offices because they don't have to sift through a million resumes and make 500 calls to line things up, someone just shows up and they decide if they like them or not.
It's EXCELLENT for the hygienist/assistant. They are simply on a sub list and tell us what they want, and before they know what happened they are getting offered a job.
It STINKS for us, because we do a whole lot of hard work to get really good subs, and then they get pulled out right from under us! When Mandi got hired, it hurt. She was our go-to girl that could work whenever, wherever, and for whoever.
So why do we do it? Because we are here to help. We want what is best for both the girls working with us and for the offices we service. We know if you are happy and satisfied, you'll tell your friends! Also, it's great to hear the excitement of some of these loyal girls who have been so flexible in subbing to get a great job that they will love.
Not everything in business has to be done to make a buck and get ahead, sometimes it's just nice to watch the pieces come together, and it's good practice in sharing, too!
