San Diego, CA – November 21, 2022 – DirectDental, America’s leading dental recruitment agency is excited to announce a new partnership with Smile Source, the largest private practice dental network in America. With more than 630 member practices comprised of more than 1,000 dental service providers, Smile Source leverages $100 million in group purchase power to lower costs and keep dental practices competitive.
Founded in 2002, DirectDental is a dental staffing recruitment agency specializing in filling short-term, temporary, and full-time dental clinic job openings. Since launching its membership service, DirectDental has become one of the leading dental recruitment agencies, servicing more than 3,700 dental practices across all 50 states. Amid unprecedented competition for staff, DirectDental clients have been able to fill 97% of all job openings posted using their full and boosted services.
“Recruiting key staff positions is a challenge that private practice dentists are currently facing. Smile Source is thrilled to add the industry-leading service of DirectDental to their portfolio of membership services. In addition to recruiting support, members also have access to group healthcare, payroll and HR benefits to help recruit top talent for key staff positions,” said Smile Source CEO, Gregg Groenemann.
The new partnership between DirectDental and Smile Source gives dentists the tools they need to recruit top talent in a highly competitive and complex field. In the last 12 months, dentists and dental practices across America have been hit hard by the dual crises of inflation as well as considerable recruitment and retention difficulties. In order to maintain high-quality care and avoid passing on the higher costs to patients, dental practices need to find cost-cutting measures and effective ways to recruit the best candidates.
“DirectDental’s mission is to give private practices all the tools dental service organizations need to staff their dental jobs,” explains Anthony Perez, CEO of DirectDental. “This includes giving them access to programmatic job advertisements, knowledgeable and affordable recruiters, an applicant tracking system and more. Working with an organization like Smile Source is a natural fit for us and for our clients. This is truly a win-win relationship for our clients.”
