Toothio Staffing Platform Designed to Match Practitioner and Practice

Toothio will help dental practices find the right dental professional to suit their needs while also handling payment and taxes.

This new staffing service called Toothio aims to create permanent hiring solutions for dental practices by matching them up with vetted dental professionals. Co-founded by Ian Prendergast, Toothio was created to address the staffing issues that the dental industry faces.

“The idea is that Toothio becomes an extension of your team,” Prendergast said in a press release from the company. “We want your patients to see the same smiling faces over and over.”

Dental practices can create an office profile to help Toothio find the best fit for whatever that practice needs. The practice then posts a shift and its pay rate, and then Toothio will do the rest, matching the dental practice with the right dental professional to suit their needs. Toothio handles payment and taxes. Toothio professionals can be utilized on a full-time basis, making it more cost effective than hiring full-time.

“When you factor in the cost of W2 overhead we are by far the most cost-effective option that does not include the cost of job ads, interviews, training, or turnover.” Prendergast said in the press release.

At the end of the shift, the dental practice can rate the professional based on performance and can then add them to be considered for future shifts. This platform is available now online at
