How will I be paid as a temporary Dental Assistant?
   All of your temporary Dental Assisting jobs will be paid to you on one weekly paycheck from RDH Temps. If you submit your timecard for the prior week by 10:00 AM on Tuesday, your paycheck will be mailed by Thursday. We offer Direct Deposit of your wages as well!

What days and times are Dental Assistants needed?

Each dental facility has different hours, so we have jobs for Dental Assistants available Mondays through Saturdays, mornings, afternoons and evenings.

How can I maximize my chances of getting work when I want it?
   First, call in often. Even if there is nothing to offer at the time, we add you to our "looking list" for that day, and when new work comes in people on the looking list are given priority. Secondly, make sure your profile is up-to-date including your regular availability, the list of towns you prefer to travel to, your skills, experience and specialties, and your license expirations. Finally, different facilities have different documentation requirements. If you become an A.C.E. (Additionally Credentialed Employee) you will be eligible for the most jobs, however every piece of up-to-date A.C.E. documentation that you supply us with increases your chances of being a match for a job.

What is the application and hiring process?
   First, submit your request here. RDH Temps will respond with our employment application. Return it to us for review and we will determine if your skill set, experience, availability, and geographic parameters match our current needs. If so, we will arrange to interview you. You will shortly be contacted by one of our personnel coordinators to schedule an interview at a location and time convenient to you. Your interviewer will guide you through the Dental Assistant employment paperwork and will provide you with all the information you will need to begin temping or to find the perfect permanent dental career opportunity for you. If not, we will notify you and put you on a future consideration list. There is never a fee to register with RDH Temps!

Why should I use RDH Temps and not just Help Wanted job listings for my Dental Assisting job search?
   RDH Temps maintains a database of Dental Assistants who are seeking the right opportunity. We collect an extensive profile on each candidate and each dental facility, so we will only refer candidates who are likely to be hired. RDH Temps never charges the candidate a fee, and only charges the facility if the right match is made. Unlike when you apply through Dental Assistant Help Wanted ads, with RDH Temps you will stand out from the crowd!
