With the healthcare industry seeing a shortage of talent across all professions, it’s not surprising that there is now a growing need for locum tenens dentists. As a leading provider of locum tenens clinicians, Medical Doctor Associates has more and more clients requesting dental professionals. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of dentists is projected to grow 19% by 2026, much faster than the average for all other occupations.
Dental professionals who choose locum tenens as a career, experience a more flexible lifestyle with improved work/life balance. In addition, there is a level of freedom they won’t find in permanent positions — they choose the destination in which they want to work, along with the clinical setting that meets their personal preferences. Locum tenens also allows healthcare professionals to try out a new position before making a full-time commitment.
Full-time, part-time, short-term and long-term opportunities are currently available for locum tenens dental professionals at facilities throughout the United States. Start down a new career path today!
