When it’s time to add another member to your dental team at any level, it’s important to take the time to fully understand your needs and find the person who can best meet them. This becomes especially important when choosing an associate dentist. It’s all about trust. You want to find a dentist who has the same philosophy of care and dedication to patients that you’ve already established. They need to have complimentary skills to bring something new to the office, and perhaps most importantly, they need to work well with your team. That’s where Workwell Management comes in. We’ve already cultivated the relationships with local professionals, and we offer you years of research and experience in selecting the best associate dentists.

Do You Need an Associate?
The first thing you need to do is evaluate your practice to determine whether or not you need an associate dentist. The Workwell Management team can help you evaluate your current customer base and treatment offerings. If it’s determined you need an associate, this information can help you decide whether you’d like to bring in an associate who specializes in a specific area or who works as a general dentist.
Do They Connect with Your Team & Patients?
Once you’ve decided you do need an associate dentist, you can begin to see how they interact with your current team members and patients. We recommend you bring each associate in for interviews not just with you but with each member of the team. If at all possible, it’s helpful to invite an associate to spend a day working with you. This gives you the opportunity to see how they interact with your team and patients.
