Finding a Good Associateship and Surviving The Real World

A guide for recent dental school graduates or anyone looking for something new


The world of dental associateships is a high stakes one in 2019. The 400 K+ loan amounts coupled with corporate groups expecting new dentists to produce creates a challenging “job searching” environment.  

I have been placing associates and matchmaking in the dental world since 2006.  You might as well call me Nacho Chuck Woolery. (referenced in a popular Beastie Boys song)  

To help both new dentists looking for jobs and owners looking for associates, I have created a valuable step-by-step guide to figuring out if the job you are being offered is GREAT, GOOD, MEH or RUN AWAY.

The material ensures that associates will find the right fit for them, allowing growth, commitment and happiness in their job and profession. 

It will teach you how to answer THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION OF ALL.  Is your associate position a CAR or a BOAT? The answer to that question is “everything” for both owners and associates.  

Please feel free to reach out with any personal inquires regarding associate positions!
