Join Shannon Patterson as she presents virtually at the topsFest 2022 Meeting! In this 'doctors-only' lecture, Orthodontic Practices: Understaffed and Ready to Hire, she will share strategies to help practices hire beyond a job board posting.
Orthodontic practices are facing major staffing issues as they emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. The ADA and HPI data show more than 80% of hiring practices find hiring/recruiting for assistants, treatment coordinators, and associate doctors is extremely challenging. The intense competition to fill openings has affected compensation significantly, which providers say has been difficult and increases overhead expenses.
Just wanted to say thank you for your presentation yesterday. I thought it was great and provided us with a great perspective.
-David E. Walker, D.D.S.
