More information about this job

Overview

At Dental Care Alliance, we are looking for dedicated professionals who are committed to excellence and understand the nature of teamwork. We offer opportunities for dentists to demonstrate their skill and abilities at all levels, as well as participate in rewards based on the success of the practice.

 

We offer our dentists the flexibility to choose the scope of dentistry they want to practice, then expand their knowledge and experience through our Dentist Career Path program. The program provides potential career growth and advancement to higher levels of responsibility, supervision and compensation. 

 

We believe that being a DCA-affiliated dentist gives dentists the opportunity to focus on patient care, enjoy their careers and live their lives on their own terms. Although we realize many dentists envision a time when they have ownership in their own dental offices, independent sources confirm it would take at least 15 years of ownership to match or exceed the compensation outlined in the DCA program. 

 

It is our intent to help our affiliated dentists achieve the benefits of ownership without the risks, capital costs and retirement concerns of actual ownership. We do, however, provide the opportunity for selected dentists to build equity and explore opportunities to buy into existing DCA practices or partner with DCA to open new practices as part of our DCA Dentist Equity program.

 

Currently we have an outstanding Par-Time opportunity for an experienced General Dentist to practice in one of our highly successful affiliated practices. State of the art practice facilities. Strong commitment to long-term dental care for the whole family.
