PORTLAND, ORE., August 22, 2022 — onDiem is excited to announce a strategic partnership with the American Dental Assistants Association (ADAA). This collaborative partnership will have a significant impact across the entire dental echo system. At the core of this partnership is a mutual commitment to support dental assistants in thriving in their careers by providing access to resources, continuing education, and career development opportunities.
This partnership will also aid practices in navigating dentistry’s nuanced and unprecedented staffing challenges. onDiem and the ADAA will work together to make onDiem’s Digital ID the trusted, single source of verification and credentialing to ensure safety and compliance across the industry. onDiem’s Digital ID streamlines navigating individual state boards for requirements and certifications for dental assistants— reducing risk and human resources.
“ADAA and its members are excited and happy to be forging a collaborative relationship with onDiem and its staff,” says Susan Camizzi, President of ADAA. She adds, “We look forward to working with the group to further assist and support dental assistants nationwide in their careers and education as an integral and very important part of the dental team.”

With a free account, dental professionals can look for temporary and permanent job opportunities, and practices can create posts for new temp shifts, search for professionals in their area, and communicate with candidates directly. Today the platform serves over 32,000 dental professionals and over 13,000 dental practices.
