Temporary dental professionals, choose to start a new career and a new path toward something that makes a difference. People who thrive in this industry are adaptable, find challenges exciting, and love the lack of monotony. Every office and every team are different, and some clinicians just like a change of scenery. The good, ethical, fun offices are great places to work. There are two obvious benefits that come from working as a substitute: the boost to your income and the flexibility and control over when you actually practice. You only have to accept the positions you want.
Learn From Your Experience
Every office has favorite systems and different equipment setups. Subbing can be like taking a mini-CE course. No, you won’t get credits, but you will learn a lot. And if you’re lucky enough to temp in an office where the dentist or other team members are natural-born educators, think about how much you can learn from being around people who love what they do and are willing to share what they know. Experience is a powerful teacher.
Then think, what if the chemistry is really good? What if you walk away feeling appreciated and knowing that you provided quality clinical care? And what if your subbing job leads to an offer for a permanent position, a referral to a great practice, or you become the go-to requested temp in a practice that you love? When temping is good, it is really good.
Like anything else in life, each one of us has control over the final outcome. If a practice is not to your liking, for whatever reason, you don’t have to go back. You have the right to choose how and where you work. Becoming temporary dental professionals or subbing can have many benefits, including helping you refine your work philosophy.
