Emergency & After Hours Support

We are pleased to provide emergency and after hours service to our clients in need of temp staff! This applies to urgent requests with less than 24 hours notice. Often these are same day or next day requests for temps.  The charge for this level of service is 1.5x the normal referral fee. So for a very nominal cost difference of a few extra dollars we can provide urgent temp request services. As always, if we are unable to fill your temp request then there is absolutely no fee! So please contact us and we look forward to serving your urgent temp staff needs!



There are no cancellation fees if you cancel your temp request before we get it filled and send you the confirmation! We only charge a cancellation fee for temp requests that we have successfully filled for your office and that are cancelled within 72 hours of the job. We don’t like charging for cancellations, but we also must help protect our temps from being left without a job for the day due to a late cancellation. If you need to cancel your temp request, please contact us as soon as possible to avoid any fees.  

We love our Clients!

We really love what we do and our mission statement is to “Help Those Who Care For Others” meaning our responsibility is to source quality temp staff that can help you provide the best dental care to your patients! Our policies enable us to continue to support your offices to the best of our ability. If you have any questions or concerns please give us a call @ (619) 295-1002!
