On today’s episode, we have this two-part episode from the Dental Success Network’s Lady Leaders series, titled “Tackling the Horrors of Hiring Office Managers & For All Positions,” speakers Ashlee Hirschfeld, Sydney Robinson, and Summer Kassmel delve into various crucial aspects of the recruitment process within dental practices. The first part focuses on the importance of aligning potential hires with the cultural values of the practice, emphasizing that cultural fit is often as significant as technical skills. The discussion also covers effective strategies for crafting engaging job advertisements that not only attract applicants but also ensure that they are the right fit for the dental practice’s environment.

Furthermore, the speakers explore the use of preliminary assessments to screen candidates efficiently before progressing to the interview stage, which helps in narrowing down the applicant pool to those who are most likely to succeed in the given roles.
