Built for Dentists, by a Dentist

Dental Career Connect was created by a Dentist and Practice Owner who was frustrated by other options available when hiring for her offices.

Our Story

After spending too many hours sorting through local Facebook groups to find temporary help at her fast-growing Cincinnati-based dental practice, Ruchika Khetarpal, DDS, developed Dental Career Connect, a chatbot-enabled tool for matching great local job candidates to open dental positions.

Why Dental Career Connect? Other job-matching sites were complicated, pricey, and out of date. Dr. Khetarpal would pay additional fees to search for resumes for candidates who were no longer looking for work. Facebook groups were only loosely organized. Association websites were comprehensive in scope, but job-matching was not their core competency. When she did manage to find a candidate, Dr. Khetarpal found that traditional vetting methods like skills or personality assessments did not necessarily yield candidates who would reliably show up to work. As anyone can imagine, it was a frustrating experience! That’s when she decided to create Dental Career Connect, which brings together quality dental-career candidates looking for work with quality practice owners and managers.

Our Mission & Vision

At Dental Career Connect, our vision is to connect dental practices with great employees, so we all can succeed at providing excellent dental care to patients.

Our mission is to make hiring and job hunting easy, enjoyable, and, most importantly, efficient for both employers and job seekers.

I knew there had to be a better way that was more enjoyable for both practices and employees to connect.
