Just how important are dental employee benefits? Very!
Many dental assistants, especially new, inexperienced interviewers and nervous job seekers, often fail to negotiate or request benefits when interviewing for a new job. Although not all dental practices offer benefits outside of some dental perks, a high percentage do have access to benefits and offer them to employees. For example, an article in RDH magazine provided the following statistics for hygienists working an average if five days a week: 47 percent are covered by employer’s health insurance plan; 57 percent receive an employer contribution to retirement; 84 percent receive at least one paid week of vacation a year.
