Rural Recruitment

Recruiting healthcare professionals to rural communities poses challenges — and opportunities for innovative solutions. Current and projected rural workforce shortages make it increasingly important for dentists, community leaders and other healthcare professionals to work together to meet the needs and demands of rural populations.

If you’re part of a community-wide effort to recruit dental professionals or if you’re an individual dentist seeking to hire someone or to establish a rural dental practice yourself, there are numerous resources to help you.
