Whether you’re currently employed or looking for your first dental position, it’s important to learn a little about yourself before you start applying. This guarantees that you’re looking at the dental positions that are right for you.  DentalPost offers six (yes, six!) tests that can determine your personality type, your core values, and much more. Here’s a brief overview of the tests and how they’ll help you land your dream job.

DISC Test

This test determines what personality type you are, and what role you play in a team. This specific test centers on four aspects of behavior:

  • Dominance
  • Influence
  • Supportive 
  • Compliance

There are no right or wrong answers here; a dental practice needs a well-balanced variety of personality types. It’s important for your employer AND you to know what personality type you are, and it makes finding the right fit a breeze. Find out more about the 16 different personality types by taking the quiz!

Core Values Test 

Browse through various core values from A-Z (literally), and initially select 20-30 that resonate with you. The next step asks you to narrow that list down to 10-15. Then, shorten THAT list to 5-7 values. This encourages you to really think about how you prioritize your values.

Skills Test 

Label your proficiency from 0-3 on a variety of skills. Once finished, the test organizes your familiar, experienced, and expert skills. This easily displays skills and skill level to you and potential employers.

Dental Position Satisfaction Test

If you are currently employed, the job satisfaction test provides a “score,” displayed as a percentage, of how satisfied you are with your job. The results also provide a summary that identifies problems you may face and offers techniques to solve them.

Workplace Culture Test

This test asks a series of questions related to how you prefer to interact and work. Then, you rank groups of three statements based on relevance and importance to you. The results show your preferred office type, work social environment, work pace, and dental position preference.

Alignment Questionnaire

This open-ended questionnaire helps employers realize your goals and what support you need to achieve them.

Once you’re done, your full list of results will post to your resume profile. Equipped with this knowledge, you’re ready to look for dental positions on DentalPost. Take the tests today!
