Helping Hands has assembled a team of dedicated staff who believe in the mission of preventing economic euthanasia and improving the quality of life for their patients. We are driven by our mission to help families obtain affordable surgical and dental care for their pets.
We are seeking a full or part time doctor with a strong interest in either dentistry and/or surgery. Advanced experience in either dentistry or surgery is a plus, but mentorship is available for a person with the right attitude and basic skill set. Our office hours are Monday-Friday with NO REQUIRED nights or weekend shifts. A 4 day full time work week is possible. Emergency shifts are available and compensated, but are not expected.
Client interaction is minimal to allow the doctors time and skill to be spent on procedures. Fixed pricing also allows the DVM freedom to tailor quality medicine to each pet without the concern for cost/estimates. Helping Hands has a diverse caseload and will allow the doctor an opportunity to refine surgical skills and learn new techniques.
