Many doctors are glad to hand over the recruiting process, and we customize talent recruitment to support your needs. The option always remains for a practice to handle its hiring process. Or, Lightwave can manage all back office administration to find, pre-screen, and introduce qualified candidates, serving as an ambassador for your brand and point of contact for prospects throughout the process. Our recruiters also conduct in-person and virtual interviews, when appropriate. Imagine the efficiencies of having your own in-house hiring manager.

Recruiting New Associates

Doctors know the clinical culture in their dental practice relies upon recruiting top talent and offering opportunities for professional growth. As the Dental Leadership Organization, Lightwave has a doctor-led management culture that prioritizes your local brand and staff relationships.

Our mission is to align with top doctors to help you lead your teams and reach your goals with the industry’s best support, without the ugly drawbacks of corporate dentistry.

We know a practice being down just one doctor or hygienist is a significant strain. Lightwave tailors its support to your needs, recruiting new associates within a short timeframe to help maintain revenue projections. We offer new candidates world-class benefits and strong compensation packages, with an unparalleled commitment to leadership development.
