FAQ

I found a person for a temp assignment, but now I want to hire him/her permanently. Is there an additional cost or paperwork to be done?
Nope! Our service doesn’t require any contracts on our end, so there’s no extra costs if you want to hire a person permanently. Also, there’s no additional paperwork needed. You’re in complete control!
My dental hygienist just called out sick and I don’t want to reschedule all his/her patients. Do I have enough time to find a replacement?
Yes. You can replace your missing staff instantly. Search Tempeak’s database of available hygienists, dentists, and dental assistants. When you’ve found who you’re looking for, send a job request to couple of them. You can choose anyone who accepts your assignment. You’ll be fully staffed and ready to go in no time.
Can I request the same dentist/hygienist/assistant again?
Yes, absolutely. You can request the same person as many times as you need. There’s no limit on how many times per month you use Tempeak for employee requests.
I really liked my temp employee that I recruited from Tempeak. How can I put in a good word for him/her?
We’d love to hear about your experience. Please log back into your profile and give that person a 5 star rating. It’s one of the things that makes Tempeak so unique!
Is my information and billing secure?
Yes, absolutely. We prioritize our sites security. Your information is securely stored so you have nothing to worry about. We’re here to serve your needs.
Can I negotiate the rates?
Every person indicates their preferred rate on their profile. You can negotiate your own rate if needed. We understand that all offices differ, so please feel free to talk with your potential employee about rates and expectations.
How do I deal with the payment?
Each employee should be paid at the end of their work day. You make the check out to the employee and it’s taken care of.
I just graduated from school, but I don’t have my license/certification yet. Can I register with Tempeak?
Unfortunately not. Tempeak requires all registering contractors to be licensed with a current and valid license/certification number. Your license must be listed in order for your potential employers to know you’re qualified for work.
I don’t have much/any work experience? Is that ok?
Yes, that’s fine! We take anyone regardless of experience. It’s a good way to get your foot in the door and start learning.
My license is about to expire. Can I still be registered and get job assignments?
The only qualified candidates for job assignments are licensed professionals. Please do what’s needed to renew your license before it expires. Don’t forget to upload the new license to your profile.
I accepted the job assignment, but now I can’t go due to an emergency. What do I do?
We understand, these things happen. We require that you handle this to the best of your professional ability. Call your assigned dental office manager as soon as you can and explain your situation. The more time given to the office to look for your replacement, the better. Do everything you can to avoid a negative rating.
I started my profile, but I’m not getting any assignments. What’s going on?
Make sure you complete the whole registration process. There are 2 screens/steps that you need to complete. If you do not upload your license, your profile will be marked as unfinished and you won’t show up as “available” for work assignments. Make sure you fill out all the necessary fields.
I just finished my assignment. What should I expect?
You should receive a paycheck from the assigned office after your job has been completed. Later, log back into your Tempeak profile to rate your working experience. If you loved it give it 5 stars, but if you didn’t, then rate your experience accordingly. Don’t forget that your employer will rate their experience with you as well.
Do I have to upload my photo?
We encourage you to upload your photo, as it gives you a better chance for an employer to select you. The photo should be a professional headshot, similar to your driver’s license photo. The employer will know who to expect when you walk through the door.
Why should I use Tempeak as opposed to a traditional staffing agency?
Tempeak puts you in charge. It connects you directly with the employer; there’s no middleman. We’re like the “Uber” for dentistry. You can negotiate your preferred rate directly with the dental office, which most likely will be higher than the rate negotiated with a staffing agency. You won’t have to fill out timesheets, wait for your paycheck, or deal with a staffing agency. No middleman, no hassle.
I feel a little uncomfortable uploading my picture and/or license. Is this a secure site?
Our site has the highest possible security that is available. You can trust us with your information. We do not sell or give away any of our data. It’s very secure and we have our IT team monitoring and securing our site 24/7.
Why do I have to upload my license?
We only hire certified/licensed professionals. Your license is a proof that you are qualified to do the job. We want to verify that everything is legit before an employer gets to request you for a job assignment. This way, employers trust both you and us.
