We are looking for a Pediatric Dentist at Mitten Kids Dentistry. We anticipate to open in full in the late spring / early summer, 2020, following the COVID-19 Pandemic.

This may include earlier start times, later end times, and weekend hours.
This job is a short term position, with likely opportunity for long term employment. Given the COVID-19 crisis and the anticipated backlog of patients that will need to be seen and treated in the months ahead, we need help!
Associate Dentist Job Items:
Part time (2-4 days per week), as per the needs of the practice and your desires
Start date: Negotiable. Likely in late spring or early summer, 2020
90 day guaranteed contract with opportunity for extension based on your desires and needs of the practice. Our hope and expectation would be that long term employment would occur.
We are based in West Michigan, with two offices:
Grand Rapids, MI: Located in Cascade / Forest Hills (Cascade / Forest Hills)
Caledonia, MI: Located in the ever growing and expanding southeast area of Grand Rapids.
