DENTAL PERSONNEL PLACEMENT SERVICE, INC.
Well, is it hot enough for you yet? I am waiting to hear some comments about the heat however we all know what is ahead of us so I think we grin and bear it. I know I am not complaining!
Just a quick update about dental placements, seminars and CPR. Temporary placements for July were up from last year which is encouraging if I didn’t reflect back on how it was 11 years or so ago. But, we have to keep moving forward and optimism is my best motivation. With that said I am happy that this year is better than last year and I am hopeful that the trend continues.
In order to provide you with more permanent job opportunities DPPS has begun offering a new option to dental offices which allows offices to place ads with their direct contact information, this allows you to contact them direct and vise versa. Of course we continue to offer the traditional placement options however many offices like the opportunity to get your contact information direct so they can call and proceed with placements themselves. You will be able to notice these ads since they have the office phone number, fax or e-mail information within the ad. You apply to the job and the office contacts you directly.
Since DPPS utilizes different social-medias to advertise job opportunities make sure you are a “friend” on Facebook or registered for e-mails and text messages otherwise, you could be missing out on job information. Since mufti-media communication avenues continue to be the trend DPPS will also have placement information on LinkedIn and I will also be giving Snap Chat a try.
The next DPPS seminar is on Sunday September 18th. We are excited that Carol Jahn RDH, MS Director of Professional Relations & Education for WaterPik will be speaking. You can join us for the AM, PM or all day session worth 6.0 CEU’S. All information can be viewed by clicking on the CEU registration icon to your left.
DPPS would like to thank WaterPik for sponsoring the September 18 event. Since taking time off these days is not an option for many RDH’S we conduct our seminars on Sundays. Seminars start at 8:00AM, we take a 30 minute lunch and are done at 2:30PM this schedule allows you to spend time with your family and friends after the event. Thus far we have over 100 RDH’S attending the September 18th seminar. The registration fee is always the lowest prior to the event and increases as it gets closer. We encourage you to register earlier opposed to later. The next increase in registration fee for the September 18th event will be on September 1st.
Philips Oral HealthCare is once again sponsoring the March event that will be held on Sunday March 19, 2017. All the information is to your left under CEU registration. CPR is also offered at every March event. Again, you can register for the seminar and CPR to your left. The prices you see for the March 19, 2017 will increase on September 17, 2016 and then again on January 17, 2017 and finally on March 17, 2017.
The 2017 DPPS Fall Seminar will be held on Sunday September 17, 2017. Information will be posted on-line ASAP.
I look forward to seeing over 100 RDH’S at the Sunday September 18th DPPS Fall Seminar sponsored by WaterPik. We will have the traditional St. Jude’s Children’s Raffle so bring your lucky charm and some extra cash to enter and possible win a great prize. Please remember that the September seminar has moved to Alsip, IL. Information can be viewed by clicking on the CEU registration icon. I look forward to seeing you soon and enjoy the warmth!
