Step 3: Hiring

One of the best strategies when it comes to making a hiring decision is to simply have a conversation during the interview. Get the candidate talking and take the opportunity to learn about them. Questions to get them talking can include:

  • What were your last three jobs?

  • How would you describe your personality?

  • Why do you like dentistry?

  • What do you not like doing in the office?

  • How well do you get along with others?

  • How well do you function on the team?

  • What do you dislike about your previous jobs?

  • Where do you see yourself in five years?

  • How have you grown in the last few years?

The purpose of the interview is to get to know the candidate both from a skillset level and as an individual. By having an open conversation and asking questions, you can gain a sense of how well this individual may fit on your team and contribute to the practice.
