Dental news - The dental recruitment crisis: what you need to know
Dental industry news - In this article, Phillip Barker will discuss the current recruitment crisis and its implications for the dental industry.
The dental recruitment crisis is one of the most pressing issues facing the dental industry today.
There is a severe shortage of dentists, and those who are working are often overworked and underpaid.
This has led to a situation where many practices are struggling to meet their UDA targets. Associates are becoming increasingly demanding in terms of pay and working conditions.
In this article, we will discuss the current crisis and its implications for the dental industry. We will also provide some insights from our own research into the matter. We hope will be of use to dental practice owners who are struggling to recruit and retain staff.
Why the crisis?
The current crisis in dental recruitment is primarily due to two factors: firstly, a shortage of dentists in the UK. This is exacerbated by an increased number of dentists choosing early retirement or part-time work since the pandemic.
And secondly, an exodus of dentists from the NHS, with many dentists opting to work in the private sector, where they can earn more money and have greater control over their working hours.
The implications of the dental recruitment crisis are far-reaching.
Dental practices need to be proactive in recruiting qualified candidates and may need to consider changing their pay structures in order to do so.
