Don't risk it: The importance of proper checks with Tempdent Recruitment Agency

In the fast-paced world of dental practices, every hire matters.

The individuals you bring into your team not only shape the quality of patient care but also influence the overall efficiency and reputation of your practice. However, the consequences of overlooking crucial checks in the recruitment process can be dire. Without the right safeguards in place, mistakes are more likely to occur, putting your practice at risk of fines, legal complications, and compromised patient safety. This is where our recruitment agency becomes your indispensable ally. With meticulous attention to detail and unwavering commitment to compliance, we ensure that every candidate undergoes thorough vetting, mitigating the risks of errors and oversights that can plague practices that opt for less rigorous recruitment processes.

At Tempdent, we understand the unique challenges that dental practices face when it comes to recruitment. From stringent regulatory requirements to the need for specialised skills, the dental industry demands a meticulous approach to hiring. With our unparalleled expertise and commitment to excellence, we streamline the recruitment process, ensuring that dental practices like yours can focus on what matters most – delivering exceptional dental care.

So why choose Tempdent?

When it comes to recruiting dental staff, cutting corners simply isn't an option. Dental practices must adhere to strict regulatory standards to avoid fines and maintain the highest level of patient care. At Tempdent, we pride ourselves on doing things by the book, leaving no stone unturned in our quest to find the perfect match for your practice.

Here's how Tempdent ensures compliance and excellence with every hire:

For Dental Nurses:

  • GDC Registration: Ensuring that every dental nurse we place is registered with the General Dental Council (GDC), guaranteeing their professional competence and adherence to industry standards.

  • Indemnity Insurance: Verifying that dental nurses possess adequate indemnity insurance, providing both peace of mind for the practitioner and protection in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

  • CRB/DBS Enhanced Checks: Conducting thorough criminal record checks to certify the integrity and trustworthiness of our candidates, safeguarding your practice and patients.

  • Hepatitis B Vaccination: Confirming that dental nurses have received the Hepatitis B vaccination, a crucial step in preventing the transmission of infectious diseases within the dental setting.

  • Right to Work Documentation: Verifying the eligibility of candidates to work in the UK, including visa documentation and share codes where applicable, ensuring compliance with immigration laws.

  • References: Collecting comprehensive references to validate the professional experience and character of each candidate, ensuring a seamless transition into your practice.

  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD): Encouraging and facilitating ongoing professional development to keep dental nurses abreast of the latest advancements in dental care and practice management.

For Dentists:

In addition to the above requirements, Tempdent ensures that dentists undergo:

  • Full Blood Report: Conducting comprehensive blood tests, including screenings for HIV, Hepatitis C, Rubella, and other relevant markers, prioritizing the health and safety of both staff and patients.

  • Safeguarding and Medical Emergency CPD: Equipping dentists with the necessary skills and knowledge to handle safeguarding issues and medical emergencies effectively, promoting a safe and secure practice environment.

  • UTR and Performer Numbers: Verifying the Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) and Performer Numbers for dentists engaged in NHS work, facilitating seamless billing and compliance with regulatory requirements.

For Hygienists:

Hygienists undergo similar checks as dental nurses, with the addition of:

  • Full Blood Report: Ensuring the health and safety of hygienists and patients through comprehensive blood screenings.

  • Safeguarding CPD: Equipping hygienists with the knowledge and skills to identify and respond to safeguarding concerns effectively.

  • Tempdent provided me with the most amazing help and support during my training. My assessor, Lynn really helped me through my course, she was very easy to approach. She had some brilliant tips and hits when it came to revising for my exams and I managed to qualify in just over a year which I do not think I could have done without such a great tutor. When I was really stuck on a project Lynn would make an arrangement for a support call where she broke down the project in a way I could understand what I had to do
