DESC Account Manager Denise Stringer met the President and CEO of the Institute of Population Health (IPH), Loretta Davis in December 2014. Loretta explained that IPH was opening a new location in Northwest Detroit and had a need for a Dentist, Dental Hygienist, and Dental Assistant. Denise explained the free services DESC offers and Loretta put her in contact with Clinical Manager Anthony Harris.
In the first weeks of January, Denise put together several options for fulfillment, including postings on major jobsites and reaching out to partners and Career Advisors for candidates. Denise found a Dentist for interview by January 14th, 2015. Loretta and Anthony were very impressed and hired him on the spot. The following week, a Hygienist and 3 Dental Assistants were referred by Denise for interviews. The newly hired Dentist worked with Anthony during the interviews and the Hygienist and Dental Assistant were selected that same day. All candidates started January 28th, 2015.
“We needed to have the positions filled on short notice. Denise understood our needs and our culture and was able to target candidates that met our requirements” said Anthony Harris. IPH has since reached back out to DESC for 2 Medical Assistants and a Registered Nurse.
