DENTAL ASSISTANTSASSISTANTS READY FOR ACTION.
Dr. Uhland is firmly committed to helping other dentists with one of our biggest challenges – staffing our offices with high quality dental personnel. This does often come up during a practice sale involving turnover with a change of doctors.
THE STAFF YOU DESERVE.
Dr. Uhland is proactive and has researched various programs in the Chicagoland area that train dental assistants. These are students that have invested significant money and time into dental assisting and want to make it their career. There are also externship programs available for dental offices where students learn more about dentistry while helping the office both with patients and the front office at charge.
There are several fantastic programs for dental assistants lasting from 6 to 9 months and requiring 120 to 160 hours of externship. This extensive training results in an assistant that is ready for the challenges of dentistry. It is up to the dentist to interview them and determine if they will be a good fit with their current dental team.
