The single most important task that contributes to the success of a dental practice is hiring the right employee which is a process. If this is done correctly, your practice will certainly have a competitive edge. According to dental statistics on a national level, the average dental practice experiences employee turnover approximately every 18 months. As a result, in order to comply with state and federal law, in addition to being proactive in the area of risk management, every dental practice must should have and obtain the items set forth below:

? Application for Employment
? Substance Abuse Policy and Procedure Manual
? Notification and Authorization Form for Employment Investigative/Consumer/Credit Report
? Criminal History Record Information Consent Form
? Background Check Authorization and Release Form
? Employee Direct Deposit Authorization Form
? Employment Reference Check
? Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9
? IRS Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate Form W-4
? IRS Wage and Tax Statement Form W-2
? Signed contracts
? Hep B Form
? Confidentiality Form
? Dental License
? DEA License
? CPR Card
? Current Malpractice certificate of insurance
? Employee Manual

Having a system in place will hopefully prevent an employee hiring nightmare, and also avoid state and federal labor law violations.
