In almost twenty years in my career as a recruiter both in legal and dental recruitment when it comes to salary I have always placed job seekers into a job based on their experience (not location) and what the current economic climate is offering.\n\nWhen you are specialising in a niche industry you are in a better position to experience new/different trends.  Since June 2018 there has been a significant\nchange regards the unrealistic expectations of support staff in particular Dental Nurses when it comes to salary. There is also the misconception of a lot of practice owners out there that ‘there are no dental nurses available’.  I would not completely agree with this.  The majority of people we work with are not applying independently to roles, so when a practice advertises a job independently they will not receive the same applications that we are actively working on.  

We will always find the right person for each individual practice, however we can never give the time-frame as to how quickly we will achieve this.\n\nThe dental profession is a very small industry and I am of the mind that we should regulate salaries in Ireland or at least have one central place to go to as a guideline as to what kind of salaries are being offered in a current year.  You should not be contacting the IDNA, the IDHA or the IDA for this kind of information.  The only people you should be speaking to is Irish Dental Jobs. We talk to dental professionals all day every day and this is how we gather our information to share with the dental profession.
