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
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.
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
