Recruitment and Temping for your Dental Practice

Recruitment can be a time consuming and confusing process and if you haven’t used a Dental Recruitment Agency before, you might have a few questions on how it all works! We have outlined below an overview on how the DCR team can assist you with your Dental staffing connections.

For more information about our fees or to speak with us about our recruitment options, please call or email our dedicated recruitment consultants on 0439 024 878 or click here to send us an email with your enquiry.

Our Dental Database Search includes the DCR team undertaking a database search of all of our Dental candidates and a dedicated ad placed on our website and featured in our job board emails to our active database.

About our database candidates:

  • The candidate has already applied to Dental Connect Recruitment
  • DCR have interviewed the candidate already and undertaken reference checks
  • We will conduct a phone screening to ensure they are suitable for your role, and nothing has changed since they were interviewed by the DCR team. Updated references will completed if necessary
  • The candidate/s resume is emailed directly to you from our team if they are suitable
  • If you wish to interview the candidates after reviewing their resumes – we will arrange a suitable time between you and the candidate (we act as your concierge service!)
  • After your face-to-face interview, if you feel they are well suited to your team and the position – a job is offered!
  • We will invoice you our discounted rate, known as our “spotters fee” or “database search fee” on the day the candidate starts in your practice

We can begin with a database search and move into a full recruitment process if needed. Depending on the urgency of filling your role we will keep you updated and advise a few days into the database search on the predicted success and if we recommend moving into a full recruitment process.

Database searches do not include a guarantee. If you feel you need a guarantee for your placement, please speak with us and we can tailor a package to your needs.
