Description
One-dentist private practice office in Chastain Buckhead Atlanta seeks chairside dental assistant. Our assistant Divlin heads back to the world of academia with aspirations of dental school acceptance in her future, leaving a spot for our next great dental assistant. Early applicants will shadow her before her departure and get the hang of the routine around here. Interviews will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays during the work day, and the last part of the work day Monday and Wednesday. Fridays are flexible for interview times. About You: Dental assistant with some private practice experience, although an aspiring dental-student-applicant has worked out in this most recent situation. Dental team-members with prior work experience in retail or restaurant-server settings often provide an excellent mix of clinical-care and welcoming hospitality towards patients. The assistant's ability to "sparkle and shine" in providing positive patient relations for the practice is as important as our ability to provide sparkle and shine to the teeth. Going to the dentist office is stressful enough in itself, so adding this extra measure of warmth from a chairside assistant is key. The ideal applicant would vote for a drama-free work environment where dentistry is recommended and performed with integrity rather than a quota-based sales environment where meeting patients' needs is not always at the top of the priority list. Our dentist is hospital-residency-trained beyond dental school (GPR) so we do typical restorative dentistry like composites, crowns, bridges, and dentures but also more complicated but highly interesting surgical procedures like implants. About us: We are a fun bunch; we laugh with our patients, and have been known to be in a few selfies with patients in the dental chair that may or may not have won the internet for that day. If you "get it" that the patient appearing in our chair is the REASON for our business day, rather than an inconvenient interruption in our business day, then we are on to something. In short, we create an environment that instills patient-desire to be here rather than elsewhere. Hours are M, Wed 7:45-5:30ish,alternating Fridays 8:30-3pm. Tuesdays are off for the assistant. Thursdays are "late days" that start Restorative in the afternoon so assistants have mornings off on Thursdays and off all day Tuesday. Please consider carefully where we are located in ITP Chastain-Buckhead and the the distance of a commute here from your home. Please consider carefully your willingness and availability to work, because that's what we are here to do. How to apply: Fine, hit the auto-apply button, but honestly the automatic-website-email-applications are NOT the first ones read at this office, sorry. INSTEAD if you want to stand out: AT LEAST, please email your RESUME (.pdf/.doc) and attached PHOTO (.jpg or similar) (with your cat or not, at the ballgame or not, whatever)to [please sign-in to view contact information]. Our private independent dental practice is within a larger dental center at xxxx Roswell Rd, NE Atlanta GA xxxx2. Our reception is on the first floor and treatment is on the second. Don't dial or fax, as that is frowned upon. Thanks for reading, and we look forward to hearing from you. But don't dial or fax...
