Are you looking to hire an associate dentist?  If so, then we have some great news for you!

The Fifth District is excited to announce its second “Speed Dating for the Resident and New Dentist”.  Last year’s program was such a success; we won NYSDA’s coveted Hallmarks of Excellence Award!

This free to members event will be held on Tuesday, October 30 from 6-9 pm at Empire Farm Brewery in Cazenovia, NY.  Open bar (beer, wine, hard cider) and food (heavy hors d’oeuvres) will be provided.  This is a private event and the brewery will not be open to the public.

While the event is not actually about Dating (it’s about networking), we still think it will be just as much fun.  True to typical “speed dating” events, individual tables will be set up for anyone to sit down and casually converse with a potential employer or business associate.

Who’s invited?

  • Residents (Upstate, St. Joe’s and St. Luke’s)
  • New Dentists (1 – 10 years out of dental school)

If you’re looking to hire this is the perfect time of year to speak to the residents, as they are just starting their programs and will soon be looking to either find employment or start a practice.  In the past, residents only found out about potential employment by word of mouth; through sales reps or attendings. Usually a hit or miss situation.  This is different.  An opportunity like this is unique, and we encourage you to participate in this event.  Whether you are looking for a full time or part time hire, this is a fantastic opportunity to increase your exposure to this great group of residents and new dentists.

If this affair sounds like it’s for you (no pun intended), please let us know as soon as possible. There are a limited amount of tables and you must register by October 3 to be a part of the event.  Potential employers are advised to bring a one pager explaining exactly what you’re looking for in an associate.

Business execs will also be present; but will not be promoted in the traditional sense.  We are offering the new dentist and resident a chance to glean some valuable business information from selected business professionals in an informal atmosphere.  All designed to help them in their future endeavors.  Tables will be set up with a sign that simply says… Accountant, Attorney, Practice Sales, Loans, Retirement, IT/HIPAA, etc.

Sounds good?  We do hope you’ll join us, but don’t forget:  You must register by October 16th.   Please call: 315-434-9161 or email: to register ASAP.

  • Residents and New Dentists will receive an Evite from Paperless Post.  Be on the lookout and Please RSVP!
  • Active Member Dentists in the Fifth will receive a mailing by US post.  Or simply download the letter and registration form by clicking Download Brochure below.
