Looking for a dental job can be intimidating and you might rather have a root canal than look for a job. It is possible to make this pain free.

When looking for a position in the dental field, there are a few basic steps that can make the process easier and much more productive.

Tip #1 Develop your plan. When job searching it is important to have a plan and be organized. Update your resume. Create a list of personal and business contacts.

Tip #2 Do the research. Research the offices or practices where you want to work. Look up their website, team members, doctors, gatekeepers and become familiar with all of them. Keep in mind that the gatekeepers are the ones you have to befriend.

Tip #3 Create a GREAT resume. Your resume needs to be an award winner with absolutely NO mistakes! It may be worth the money to hire a resume writing service or find several friends to look over your resume for mistakes. Your resume should highlight or imply your skills and what you can do for that dental office.

  • On job boards like http://www.DentalPost.net, you can add your professional profile picture, work history, accomplishments, and achievements.

Tip #4 Sell yourself. You will need to promote your accomplishments and experience. Be assertive and confident when presenting your skills. Mention how you can enhance their practice with your skills.

Tip #5 Use the Internet (carefully!). Do your homework and assess information about potential employers. Do NOT post your social security number, driver
