Save Time and Money

by Bringing on a Locum Tenens Provider

Bringing on a locum tenens provider could save your facility $500,000 in expenses depending on your facility's location! When you hire a permanent dentist, you are forced to pay additional expenses on top of their salary. Some of these expenses include, but are not limited to:

    • Benefits
    • Signing bonuses
    • Health insurance
    • Relocation fees

    Not to mention the hiring process for a full-time provider takes longer than that of a locum. This means while you are candidate searching, you are costing your facility money via gaps in patient care, interrupted work flow, low employee morale, and cost of lost referrals. When you bring on a locum tenens provider, all you need to worry about is the salary.

    Skills that Make Up a Good Dentist

    How to identify a quality healthcare provider

    It's incredibly important to have a quality dentist seeing patients at your facility. According to Indeed, these are the most important skills and qualifications when searching for a dentist to add to your team:

    • DD, DDS, or DMD education is required
    • Must have a current license and up-to-date insurance
    • Previous experience at dental practices in good standing
    • Pleasant chair-side manner
    • Delivery of high-quality care
    • Outstanding communication skills
