This busy practice is bursting at the seams! Join as an associate to help deliver top-notch care to a great university community, with an opportunity for equity when you’re ready.

With 7 operatories, this well-established practice has plenty of space and the latest technology, including a Kodak CBCT scanner, a Cerec scanner, and an XL milling unit. But since the owner’s father retired, patients are now waiting months to get in. As an associate, you’ll be busy right from the start — with mentorship that helps you learn and grow.

The owner is dedicated to lifelong learning and active in organized dentistry and a study club. She says, “Dentists have a commitment to keep our knowledge and skills current by seeking self-enhancement through perpetual learning. By doing this, we will evolve professionally through evidence-based practice and technological advances rather than stagnating in our beliefs. I envision that I will always continue learning, not only from textbooks and journals, but from interactions with other members of the healthcare team, my patients, and their families. I want to learn each day, and apply what I’ve learned to improve my skills as a dentist. I am confident that I am a better dentist than yesterday, and I will be an even better dentist tomorrow than I was today.”

The practice delivers general dentistry, plus endodontics, prosthodontics, orthodontics, and cosmetic procedures, serving the entire community. The owner explains, “Dentistry is an honorable career, and is much more than just a job to earn a paycheck. My mission is to proudly provide nonjudgmental care to those in need regardless of race, spiritual beliefs, lifestyle choices, financial status, or disability. I believe I have a responsibility to provide dental care to those who are unable to afford care because every person is deserving of the benefits of a healthy mouth. I feel my team members are my family and we make decisions together for the overall benefit of the patients that we serve.”

One reason the practice is so busy is because of its prime location on a busy thoroughfare in Bloomington, Indiana — home to Indiana University. The converted insurance building gives the office a “homey” feeling that puts patients at ease. The office has wonderful drive-by curb appeal, thanks to the hardworking gardener who keeps things blooming. 

Bloomington is an exciting university town with year-round events to satisfy many tastes. Choose from a wealth of international restaurants stemming from the numerous ethnicities represented at the university. Musical performances are scheduled throughout the year, and the university participates in 24 sports so there is always a match to watch! 

The Lotus Music Festival brings in dozens of performers annually. Several restaurants and bars in town provide music for all ears.

Nearby Lake Monroe provides a wonderful way to de-stress and enjoy water activities at the same time! Many people from around the state make it their weekend home, as do visitors who frequent the campsites and hotels.

Bloomington is a great, safe place to raise a family. Many people return to Bloomington because the cost of living is much lower than in larger places but still has all of the trappings of a large metropolitan city. There are two high schools, numerous elementary schools, and three alternative schools.

Join this practice to be busy, learn from a well-established dentist, and have an equity opportunity when you’re ready — all while living in booming Bloomington! Fill out the form below to learn more.
