About Us

The Dental Directions Team - Professional Match Makers

Founded in 1993, the goal of Dental Directions is to provide dental staffing services with a spirit of excellence where dental practices and employees alike are consistently and successfully matched with a favorable outcome.


Our clients can testify that we routinely exceed that goal to everyone's benefit!

The team at Dental Directions is continually striving to stay up to date with individuals throughout the dental community as well as maintaining a strong understanding about the latest technologies in the industry. Our extensive network will give you access to jobs and employees before there is public awareness. We maintain close relationships with local dental schools and students as well as a strong affiliation with the Texas Dental Placement Network, which means we have staffing connections beyond the Dallas-Fort Worth area, including San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and Lubbock.

Giving Back

Dental Directions appreciates the opportunity to work in North Texas and the DFW area, so we routinely invest in the community's wellbeing by donating thousands of latex and nitrile gloves for volunteer dentists at Dental Health of Arlington Dental Clinic, where economically disadvantaged individuals can receive dental care at no charge.
