How we can help you find an Associate

We have been successfully matching hundreds of Dental Practices with  Associate Dentists online since 2004. Through Patterson Connect, we look forward to helping you take the next step in your dental career. Our easy to navigate website and advanced search functionality make the search process simple. 

Patterson Connect offers our members a confidential, low-cost search solution for finding the right associate for their dental practice. It is often difficult and time-consuming for a practicing/owner dentist to locate and hire qualified and professional associate dentist candidates that are as invested and committed to their patients as they are. By utilizing our network of thousands of qualified dental associates who are looking for the “right fit” for their futures in dentistry, you are able to save time and money to find the “right fit” for your practice opportunity. We have created an easy search functionality for you to be able to quickly search through and pre-screen potential dental candidates looking to be in practice in your area and to be able to contact them directly through your Patterson Connect account without having to wait for a 3rd party introduction.
