Partnership launched to support practice managers through the recruitment process

06 February 2024

The Association of Dental Administrators and Managers (ADAM) has formed a partnership with specialist dental recruitment company MedMatch Dental to help navigate the pressures and demands of recruiting for dental practices.

Lisa Bainham, the chairperson of ADAM, said, “I’m delighted that MedMatch Dental has recognised the importance of practice managers within the dental industry, and we’re thrilled to welcome them as a sponsor of ADAM in 2024. Recruitment issues are ongoing in the industry, and something we are consistently asked about is how to make the task of filling vacancies easier. With MedMatch Dental, I personally have firsthand experience of their expertise, service and dedication to finding the right candidate for the right role. They are an asset we know our members are going to undoubtedly appreciate.”

Gary Lehal, MedMatch Dental team leader, said, “It’s a great pleasure to finally be partnering up with the Association of Dental Administrators and Managers – this is a partnership we’ve been excited about for a very long time now, and one which we hope will continue long into the future.

“Practice management and the vital tasks that come with the role play an integral part in the Dentistry Sphere and recruitment within the sector. On top of being the initial point of contact for prospective clinicians and members of staff, the practice manager is responsible for the wellbeing of patients and in situ staff; the smooth running of the clinic and the organisation of the team as a whole. Maintaining the operational integrity of the practice is pivotal in the recruitment of high calibre candidates and failing in any aspect can mean the difference between securing and losing a potential hire.

“We also believe continuing professional development is essential in any career, particularly for a position as essential as practice management. This is why we are partnering up with ADAM, as we, alongside them, want to increase their representation in the dentistry world and heavily support their ethos and values. We hope the partnership between Medmatch Dental and ADAM will be a long and fruitful one!”
