It’s a special year for 2015 marks our 10th anniversary – that’s one amazing decade of helping thousands of dental professionals make great career moves! Of course, the dental profession is much older than us, but we’re thrilled to be contributing to its growth and momentum here and now.

And while we were building the DentalPost timeline, CEO & Founder Tonya Lanthier, RDH was building a family! After welcoming twin girls in 2005, Tonya quickly discovered that balancing the responsibilities of a new family and the growth of her dental hygiene career was no small task. This challenge inspired Tonya to create a user-friendly, comprehensive job board tailored to dental professionals, and so was founded that same year.

True job satisfaction starts with identifying the things that are most important to us. By working for a Dentist who shares her love of family, Tonya has achieved an ideal balance, which allows her the freedom to be more involved in her daughters’ lives.

As you’re contemplating the direction of your career, we encourage you too to consider the things that are most important to you. And thank you for being a part of the family!
