Dental Assistant
 Chelsea, NY
Sink your teeth into something new.

Tend is the world’s first dental wellness experience. Dental care used to be just about your teeth. We make it about your entire wellbeing. With doctors you love, technology that eases, and an environment that soothes, we turn every moment of your visit into a whole-you wellness experience. Before, the best you could hope for was “You won’t feel a thing.” At Tend, we want you to feel something great.

We’re looking for brush buffs, gargle gurus, floss bosses (and novices, too), and anyone who cares about making dentist visits something to savor to join our small and growing team. Headquartered in NYC and Nashville with dental practices opening in Manhattan in 2019, we’re building a totally fresh take on oral wellness, and we want you to sink your teeth in, whether you swear by mint or cinnamon (or chai).

We're seeking a team-oriented, guest-centric Dental Assistant with impressive communication, hospitality & organizational skills. In partnership with our Dentists, you'll have the incredible opportunity to positively influence oral wellness at Tend.
