A Day In The Life

On any given day at MI Smiles Dental you can expect to encounter the following:

  • Arriving 15 minutes before our 7:45am huddle with your team to celebrate yesterday’s wins, address the opportunities, and prepare for today’s patients. You walk in prepared and ready!
  • Working with a driven team.
  • Caring for new and existing patients of all ages and backgrounds.
  • Working in an office built on shared values, team work, and loads of laughs.
  • Treating every patient with a judgment-free attitude, meeting them where they are at, and helping them get where they want to be.
  • A 9 am molar root canal and an E4D crown in a single visit.
  • A guided-implant placement to replace a missing premolar.
  • An emergency walks in and you address their pain with a surgical extraction.
  • Extraction of 22 teeth under local anesthesia and delivery of an immediate denture after lunch.
  • Meeting a new patient and taking several minutes to really get to know them and address their goals for treatment.
  • Starting an Invisalign case.
  • Spending lunch with your assistants to train them on your expectations and to hear their feedback about how you can improve your communications with patients.
  • After work, you head to a monthly meeting of all our dentists for continuing education, fellowship, and growth.
  • During the meeting we discuss your individual Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and how we can support you best in reaching those goals.

This position might be for you if:

  • You love the West Michigan area and the many things this beautiful part of the country has to offer like: sunny days on beautiful lake Michigan, some of the best craft beer in the nation, breezy Saturday morning visits to the many local farmers markets, the eclectic mix of food and nightlife options, and countless other activities.
  • You love working in an office that has proven systems put in place to maximize efficiency and promotes the highest level of patient care.
  • You thrive when working with a well oiled team.
  • You enjoy a down to earth communication style with patients and team.
  • You love working with patients of all different ages and backgrounds.
  • You understand that case acceptance doesn’t necessarily happen today, but rather over time and only with a quality relationship in place first.
  • You believe in getting better every day, and you are comfortable with sharing your specific professional goals and the support needed to reach them.
  • You love to have fun and you have tons of energy, and you share both with your team and patients.
  • You are competitive, both with yourself and others, as it contributes to your growth and ability to deliver your “gift” of dentistry.
  • You are self-driven and will take initiative to improve processes to make MI Smiles Dental the “Best Team in Town.”
  • You are confident in your capabilities and you aren’t afraid to admit it when you don’t know the right answer.
  • You love people and seek to develop lasting relationships with your patients and your team.
  • You value working with other experienced doctors and the mentorship and coaching they have to offer.  

Deal breakers… if these don’t fly, don’t apply… and please don’t lie (did you like the rhyming there?). This job isn’t for you if:

  • You resist change and believe that the “way things have always been done” is always the best path.
  • You are looking for a short-term job.
  • You like to sit around and watch paint dry, or simply “punch the clock”.
  • You don’t like committed relationships and you aren’t willing to put the patients and the practice first.
  • Your values do not align with the values listed above.

Summary

  • To land this gig, you will need to have advanced training and experience that will complement our high patient care standards. If you do not resonate with the job description, values, and culture described, this won’t be a good fit for you. At the end of the day we want to make our patients happy, our team happy, and our doctors happy! If the shoe fits, you can expect a life-changing experience that will change your perspective on your career and your standards for success. If you are a fit for our practice, WE NEED YOU to help us continue bringing countless smiles to the West Michigan area (specific West Michigan location to be discussed during interview process)!
