About Dental Power

In 1975, if a key dental staff member was unexpectedly out of the office, the dental practice had little choice but to cancel patients for the day or temporarily lower their standard of care. Well known employment agencies did not service the dental industry because they did not understand the specific technical needs or skills involved in providing dental care.

While working in a progressive dental office, our founder Meryl Samii recognized the need for a specialized staffing service to address the needs of the dental community. With the support and cooperative efforts of her family and the dentist she worked for, she created Dental Power. By the end of 1975, the company was providing temporary replacement personnel and permanent placements of skilled dental professionals to practices in the Washington, DC region.

As Dental Power grew its placement services to dental practices around the country, we broadened our business by supplying dentists and dental staff to government dental clinics via contract services. Today, Dental Power is a nationally recognized dental talent placement service, as well as a GSA scheduled government contractor which provides Professional Medical and Health Care Services.

Dental Power operates through the following two specialized divisions:

Our Dental Power Staffing division is a network of local staffing offices focused on placing hygienists, dental assistants, office managers, front office personnel, laboratory technicians, and other dental support professionals to dental offices and facilities for both temporary assignments and permanent hires.

Dentist Placement Advantage (DPA) is our expert division for dentist placements nationwide. Operated by seasoned and accomplished dentists, DPA provides hundreds of dentists who handle locum tenens assignments throughout the U.S., as well as identify dentist candidates for associate hires, partnership and transition opportunities.

Our Professional Healthcare Government Services division works with Federal, State, County and local governments throughout the United States who have their dental department personnel contracted through Dental Power. This division operates the strict protocols and guidelines necessary to employ healthcare practitioners and professionals within the government sector.

Throughout our 40 year history, thousands of dental practices have placed their trust in us to provide outstanding dental talent who keep their practices productive and running smoothly. To earn that trust, our expert placement teams continually utilize their unique industry knowledge and experience to meet the needs of our Clients, and maintain uncompromising professionalism in their services. Our strong reputation as one of the highest regarded and most trusted names in the dental field reflects how well we have incorporated these values into our daily operations.
