As North America's Largest and #1 Rated dental temping and hiring service, we know how important it is to ensure you’re booking properly qualified hygienists and assistants for your practice.
At the time of registration, and when a first shift is booked, we are diligent in good faith efforts to verify that hygienists are licensed and “Active” with the provincial or state licensing body. Periodically we check to make sure that their status is still valid.
That being said, with 1000’s hygienist members in North America, it is not feasible for TempStars to verify and update the daily status of every hygienist and assistant. Because the employment relationship exists between the booking office and the booked hygienist or assistant, and TempStars does not act as an agency representing any parties, it is ultimately the responsibility of the dental office to verify valid qualifications and licensing credentials. Please review Section 18 of TempStars Terms of Service for clarification.
When a shift is booked, you are provided with the hygienist's year of graduation, where they graduated from dental hygiene training and the license number of your booked hygienist. To be sure, you can verify their status on the provincial or state licensing body’s website. Every dental hygienist is further advised to bring a copy of their license to the shift for verification by your office before the shift starts.
When you receive an offer from a temp to work a shift, you’ll be able to view the resume of the candidate making the offer. You’ll also see the year/school of graduation. With this feature, you will be approving any hygienist before they are booked and confirmed for your job.
In addition, our hygienist & assistant members establish a “star rating” based directly on feedback from other dental offices whenever they complete a shift.
