Having a large multi-doctor orthodontic practice with multiple locations presents many staffing issues. We have been fortunate to have worked with the Dental Assistant Academy (DAA) since its inception. Not only have many of their students gained experience as externs in our offices, we have been privileged to employ several. Most of our clinicians have matriculated through assisting schools and are ladened with heavy debt upon completion. That has not been the case with DAA. If fact, we prefer hires who meet the requirements for credentialling, but at the same time allows us to train them in the areas of most importance to us. The DAA has been a valuable resource to identify individuals who are looking for careers versus jobs.
