Job Description

Do you want to:

  • Go beyond normal hygiene to benefit oral and total health?
  • Take an integrative approach to periodontal care?
  • Learn to identify dental problems and educate patients about dental treatment?

If you answered yes, then keep reading!

We are Total Health Dental Care, a rapidly growing East Bay practice with offices in Berkeley and Oakland. We provide whole person dentistry, an integrative approach based on the overwhelming evidence that oral health and total whole-body health are connected.

If you are familiar with how lifestyle impacts health; are interested in areas like nutrition, exercise, stress management, therapeutic herbs and supplements; likes learning and talking about foods that contribute to a less acidic pH; and are passionate about preventive dental treatment...then we want to talk to you because we are looking for someone special to join our team!

This is not your typical hygiene position! Along with periodontal cleanings, you'll discuss each patient's lifestyle impact on total health and educate patients to seek preventive dental care. This way, you'll provide more effective, meaningful and comprehensive care, and develop stronger relationships with your patients. Since the sky's the limit when it comes to this type of care, you'll never be bored. Plus, you do it all with a fun, conscientious team in a great office.

Weekly Schedule:

4 week days (8am-5pm) plus half day on Saturday (8-2pm)

Requirements include:

  • CA RDH license
  • Exceptional communication skills
  • Strong interest in integrative medicine and lifestyle's effect on oral health
  • Outstanding chair-side manner
  • Genuine, passionate care for others' well-being
  • Ability to maintain a friendly, helpful, compassionate and positive attitude.
  • Ability to work with interruptions and manage multiple priorities
  • Must understand and seek to get proficient with organizational systems
  • Big bonus if you have experience as a dental assistant and experience with laser treatment.

We are looking for someone who walks the talk when it comes to healthy lifestyle choices.

How to Apply:

We really do care a whole lot more about who you are as a human being than we do about where you've been and the list of skills on your resume. If you can envision yourself in our description, write us a letter and tell us why you think you'd be a perfect fit with our team.

Do not send us your resume at this stage. Simply e-mail your letter as a PDF attachment (name the PDF file in this format: "your first and last name_RDH_letter") to drhokmabadi 'at symbol' with "Whole Person Dentistry (RDH) - your first and last name" as the subject line. Please also include which days you are available to work.

We take the time to read every response (that followed these instructions), and we will contact you quickly if a match seems likely. We are eager to meet people and expand our team, so responses will be timely and direct.
