I currently use Done Desk as my HR platform. Cary and Done Desk deal exclusively in the dental field, so not only does it supply all needed federally required employment documentation (new hire and termination documentation and processes, employment poster requirements). It also offers dental office-specific documentation and resources like state-specific HIPAA requirements, dental state board rules, vaccination requirements, etc.

The platform also has a time clock, allows us to track all licensure, CE requirements/ their expiration dates, and do our annual HIPAA, OSHA, Infection Control, and a ton of other CE training courses!
