Dental Insights

The MDS Dental Practice Committee recommends before hiring a new staff person for your office that you conduct—or consider hiring a third party to perform—a background check on the job candidate. The information received from this background check—including former employers, educational institutions, government sources, consumer credit agencies, Internet databases, and personal references—will help you know more about your potential employee and, as a result, may minimize your exposure to risk, such as fraud or embezzlement.
