Temporary Dentists

Does your practice need a Temporary Dentist?

“Locum Tenens” Latin for “place holder,” Locum Tenens is a temporary dentist that a dental practice might need in the event of the prolonged absence of a staff dentist. Sometimes, the need for a Locum Tenens is an unexpected emergency because of an accident. Sometimes it is a planned absence or leave. Whatever the circumstance, a temporary dentist is needed or patient appointments will have to be cancelled.
