Dental Implant Practice Hiring

How is your dental implant practice hiring going?

Hiring is THE implant business topic of 2022.  Whether its associates, assistants, or basic admin, hygienists, finding staff is a challenge.  If we are seeking highly specialized sales staff with direct to patient sales experiences the level of difficult is many multiples of difficulty beyond basic staff.

As a sign of the reality of what’s happening on the ground, almost all of those dentists hiring report significant challenges in filling the vacancies.  While finding staffing is a challenge or impossible, on the demand side, interest remains very strong with patients looking to go back to the dentists or to fix long standing problems addressed by dental implants. 

The Dental Staffing Crisis

The most recent ADA data indicates that 94% of patients do not have reservations about visiting the dentist. Considering what’s transpired since March of 2020, that number is astounding and a positive sign for those dentists who can move past dental implant practice hiring issues and on to teams ready to engage patients.

Here’s what Forbes has to say about the dental staffing shortage.

ADA NewsMay 2021: 70% of owner dentists saying recruitment of administrative staff was extremely or very challenging 

What about implant practice owners?  What’s the situation in these ultra-specialize practices?

Well, our 2022 survey of 2,000 implant focused practice owners had 90% responding YES to the following question:

“Is staffing (lack of, quality of, difficult in obtaining) preventing you from harvesting current business opportunities OR preventing you from investing in new advertising?”

Economically, the inability to find and hire specialized sales team members, a critical staff component for success when focusing on the full arch implant case niche, is limiting the everyday case flow from existing advertising for most providers.

Other Contributing Factors

To make matters worse, this same limitation (lack of staffing/inability to hire qualified new staff specific to sales skills) is also directly preventing those with strong cash flows, ready to launch ambitious new advertising to increase their monthly case counts, from moving to launch their new advertising. 

Their thinking is:

“If I can’t service the demand from new advertising with existing staff already overwhelmed doing their regular basic work, if I can’t competently handle 50-100 in bound sales phone calls from prospects nor manage the time intensive phone discussions and qualifying conversations, I can’t even consider investing in new advertising. I’m ready to go but I simply don’t have the staff!”

Unfortunately, when you read the industry publications on this issue, you will quickly notice there is no short- or medium-term answer to any of these local hiring issues.  However, there is now a national solution for U.S. and Canadian based implant practices to circumvent all local hiring issues and quickly move on to new advertising and new case flow irrespective of local staffing and hiring problems.
