At DentalPost, we believe there’s a dream job out there for everyone, and that the shortest path to that dream job is paved with knowledge. Through the comprehensive assortment of tests and assessments we provide to analyze things like your values and personality, employers and job seekers alike can find great matches and make career-changing connections.

One of the most fascinating of those assessments is the DISC test. Have you ever considered how your personality type could influence the way you work or how you communicate with your co-workers? How about the way you navigate challenges or celebrate victories?

As dental professionals, we interact with hundreds of people on a daily basis, but the key to effective communication lies in understanding OURSELVES first, especially during the job search and hiring process.

We surveyed the dental community to learn how personality types are distributed across our industry, and here are the eye opening results!
