Career Path

The role of dentist is just the beginning of a rewarding career for doctors who join Kool Smiles. We offer roles for those who are passionate about patient care, and we also have a variety of opportunities beyond dentistry. Want to reach beyond a traditional dentist's role? We've got career paths you'll love. No matter your experience level, we've got something for you at Kool Smiles.

Interested in exploring specialized dentistry? We provide a proven path into residency programs if you're considering returning to school. In fact, Kool Smiles dentists have a greater than 70% acceptance rate to a specialty residency! What's more, we offer tuition assistance for doctors who want to return to Kool Smiles as a specialist.

Interested in mentoring and developing others, or being a leader-doctor? Kool Smiles also offers professional growth opportunities to become a Senior Associate Doctor, State Dental Director or Area Dental Director. We're big on promoting from within: More than 70% of our clinical leadership team began their Kool Smiles career as Associate Doctors.

Interested in practice ownership? Kool Smiles provides select doctors the option to take on an ownership role in either a Kool Smiles practice or a Benevis affiliated office (a traditional private practice). Most importantly, we help make practice ownership simple, straightforward, and with minimal up-front costs. All this means you can realize your dream of practice ownership sooner, rather than later.

Dental Careers For Recent Graduates

Kool Smiles is the ideal place for a new dentist to start a meaningful career. We provide foundational training that meet American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines from our experienced clinical leaders and on-going continuing education. All new dentists work in an office with other experienced dentists so they are welcomed to the Kool Smiles family with support and encouragement from their colleagues. In addition, our clinical quality program provides all dentists with regular feedback from respected experts.

It is common for a general dentist to not feel comfortable working with younger children and as a result are unable to really provide general dentistry services to an entire family. At Kool Smiles, you will learn best practices, both behavioral and clinical, for working with children of all ages. These skills will differentiate you from the majority of your fellow dentists throughout your entire career. In addition, our dedication to providing modern technology like digital x-rays and electronic dental records means our new dentists work with cutting-edge equipment.

Immigration And Relocation Assistance

If you're a foreign born dentist who has completed an US accredited DDS, DMD or residency program and would like to continue your dental career in the US, Kool Smiles can help you obtain work authorization. If you are a dentist that will require sponsorship, please ask your recruiter for a copy of our immigration guidelines to learn more. Sponsorship will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Kool Smiles may offer a relocation package for dentists willing to work in specific Kool Smiles locations. Kool Smiles can provide a relocation package that will help reduce the stress and costs of your relocation. We work with local realtors who are knowledgeable about their community. Not only can they help find you an apartment, condo, or house, but they also provide you with local flavor! The choice to move for a job is a big decision — we want to ensure that once that decision is made your transition to your new home and community is a smooth one.

Kool Smiles is making a difference in both our communities and globally.
