Looking for a full-time, (very) well-paid associateship where you can work with children and make a difference? This community pediatric dental clinic needs YOU! Pediatric experience is preferred, but not mandatory, as the senior dentist is happy to mentor!
This non-profit clinic started as a small practice with one operatory, donated equipment, and volunteers doing renovations. Today, it's grown into a 6-operatory, fully equipped, modern dental practice providing much-needed and appreciated dental care for almost 4,000 children throughout the local area.
You’ll thrive with hands-on mentorship from the senior dentist and work with fantastic patients in a mission-driven practice. Enjoy great benefits and input about your schedule. Ideally, you’ll want to get involved in this fantastic, welcoming Maine community.
The founder explains, “I feel drawn toward helping those in need and I believe that the desire to help people through dentistry is in a sense a calling. As such, in my 19th year of private practice as a general dentist (2011), I decided I needed to try to serve patients who were invisible to those of us in private practice who were limiting the number of Medicaid patients we'd see, due to drastically low reimbursement levels. With my husband's help, we founded the clinic with a mission to provide a comprehensive, caring dental home for every child who needs one. I believe I have a responsibility to our communities and to the profession to use my knowledge and skills for the greater good, as those communities supported my private practice for so many years.”
“Having seen too much dental disease in so many little mouths, while knowing that PREVENTION is key, the clinic has a strong hygiene department. A goal is to instill prevention messages from the very beginning of the lifespan, in infancy, and even prenatally. Dentistry is an honorable yet humbling profession. I enjoy planting seeds to encourage young people to consider a career in dentistry. I also appreciate any opportunity to share knowledge and past clinical experiences with newer grads.”
