Aloha from Hawaii! Greetings from the Shore! Wouldn’t it be nice to be sending postcards to your friends from the beach while your office continues to be productive? Perhaps the reason for needing time off is not so glamorous. You broke your leg and won’t be able to work for a few weeks. None the less, the bills keep piling up and your disability insurance doesn’t kick in for 30, 60, or even 90 days.
Dentists need to be able to take time off while keeping their offices working. In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, a dentist must be present for a dental hygienist to perform their duties. Most offices close for the duration of their doctor’s absence and have their employees sign up for unemployment. This can create a situation for disgruntled employees and alot of paperwork. If the office is closed for too long, patients may opt to go elsewhere. The goal of Dr. Fill-In is to keep the office open and working. Dr. Fill-In dentists primarily provide emergency care, hygiene checks, and some basic dentistry. Typically the temporary dentist generates enough income so that he/she pays for their own salary and additional income for the owner dentist.
