DentalPost, a niche dental job board, has launched a new screening tool called SmartView, which helps dental employers expand their candidate pool and find better matches by reducing personal bias in the initial screening process. Few niche job boards offer such capability so this is a great move in my opinion.
The site says SmartView “helps dental employers stay focused on the right things – skills, experience, and assessment insights – rather than a candidate’s physical appearance, age, ethnicity or gender.”
“DentalPost has long been trusted and recognized as the first and biggest dental job board, focusing exclusively on the hiring and career needs of dental professionals,” said Tonya Lanthier, RDH, DentalPost founder and CEO. “We strive to also be the most fair job board, helping level the playing field for job seekers while positioning dental practices and dental service organizations to thrive by changing old ways of thinking and hiring that may not serve them anymore. With SmartView, we’re helping hiring managers get out of their own way in order to find the best matches for their practice and their team.”Tonya Lanthier
With SmartView on, dental employers can temporarily hide a candidate’s name and photo while evaluating professional background and training. This process helps the hiring manager set aside their personal preferences and unconscious biases while reviewing the qualities that are most important to them in a potential hire. Once the employer is ready, they can rate the profile to reveal the candidate’s full profile details, including names and photos.
The award-winning dental job board has long stood out for using assessment-driven data to help dental practices and dental professionals find the right fit. With Match by DentalPost(™), launched in 2020, DentalPost introduced its proprietary algorithm to match employers and job seekers using objective evaluation insights. The combination of SmartView and Match by DentalPost positions DentalPost to be the most inclusive hiring platform for job seekers and provides employers access to more qualified candidates that they might have otherwise overlooked. SmartView dives beneath the surface, helping both job seeker and employer see first what matters most.
“What started as a dental job board has evolved into so much more,” said Lanthier. “Having temped in hundreds of dental offices over my 20 years in dentistry, I started to notice the difference between the good teams and great ones. For years, it’s been my mission to help improve dental teams through our platform. So launching SmartView, to reduce bias and create stronger, more diverse teams is a natural extension of that mission.”
