Finding an Associateship

Looking for your first job after graduating from dental school or looking to make a change in your current situation? Finding the right associateship takes time and experience. Do you want to work for corporate or are you interested in exploring private practice? Do you want something with the potential for ownership down the road? Does having a mentor appeal to you? We spend the time to get to know each and every one of our associate candidates to make sure they understand what their options are and are able to make the right decision. We work hard to find them the positions that will help them reach their goals and provide for a gratifying career.

When working with BridgeWay, you will start off by speaking with an Associate Placement Specialist. They will learn about you, your situation, and what you are looking to achieve. We will then gather the necessary information that we will need in order to match you with the right opportunity. Once we have that information, we will set up another time to talk you through the opportunities that we have that might work for you. From there we will schedule interviews and work with you and the host to help you land that dream job. We will be hands on and present from this point until you begin working in your new associateship.



Christina and BridgeWay Transitions did a fantastic job helping me, as an associate dentist, find a new practice to work at.  She was continually following up to see how the interview process was going, and made sure I was happy with my transition after my first week.  I would recommend them to any associate trying to find a new opportunity without any hesitation.

I appreciate the more in-depth questionnaire BridgeWay utilizes in their matching services. When I interviewed at the practice that I eventually accepted my associate position with, they mentioned that my answer to the ‘Practice Philosophy’ section of the questionnaire was what drew their attention to my application. I had been interviewing for various positions for over a year and had turned down several job offers due to a lack of fit in this exact criterion: shared philosophy of caring for patients. I am not sure I would have found the practice I am so happy to be at now without this particular connection BridgeWay takes into account in their process.

I am grateful for the network of available associate dentists that BridgeWay had ready for us. Within a few days we were introduced to one of their candidates and within weeks the dentist was hired and started. I couldn’t have imagined an easier experience.
