Supporting Team Members in Every Way Possible

At Mortenson Dental Partners, we are here to support team members through whatever obstacles might come their way. The road to becoming a dental specialist isn’t always an easy one, as one of our supported dentists recently discovered. As an orthodontist originally trained out of the country, Dr. Naurine Shah worked as a dental assistant at an Abbeville Dentistry practice while she completed the required exam and licensure process to practice within the state of Texas. Although she encountered some challenges during her completion process, Abbeville Regional President Dr. Mayada Khater, along with MDP Chief Dental Officer Dr. Britt Bostick, were right there to help her along the way as constant advocates and mentors. In the end, she passed her exam with flying colors! 

“I was very fortunate to have the guidance and support of Abbeville during a very stressful journey. International dentists face a lot of challenges with getting licensed and Dr. Khater and Dr. Bostick were extremely supportive during the entire process. I am excited to work with this amazing team and benefit the lives of our patients together,” said Dr. Shah. 

This orthodontist’s experience is just one example of the level of support MDP can provide. MDP has a number of programs that are geared toward provider development. For instance, our Hire to Retire program features a customized development path with three focus areas: professional and clinical development, leadership development, and wealth and security. This program includes beneficial opportunities for providers, such as mentoring, which Dr. Shah experienced firsthand.

Mentoring is crucial for new clinicians as they grow more comfortable delivering outstanding care. As Dr. Shah found, having a mentor to support you along your new journey as a provider helps to build confidence and leads to growth in skill set and leadership. This is just one aspect of our Hire to Retire program that helps give providers the support they need to be the best they can be. 

We are so thankful that Dr. Shah was able to receive her license and begin practicing as an orthodontist. At Mortenson Dental Partners, caring is at the foundation of what we do. We focus on caring for each other, our patients and our communities. Whether you’re a dentist, hygienist, dental assistant, practice manager, or work in our Support Center, we are here to help you in any way you need.
