I have found that Dentistry is a field that also has remote options available. Of course a Dentist could not perform any physical procedures on patients from their home offices, but there are several administrative tasks that can be performed. There are office takes in every field, no matter the industry. Someone will need to answer phones, type letters and forms, send and receive correspondence, send and receive currency, etc.
If you have a career in Dentistry but require a bit more flexibility, you may find your opportunity listed here. I had no idea there was even the possibility to perform freelance Dentistry. There is ample opportunity here to open your own small business performing billing or other services on your own time schedule. There is even a site looking for a freelance anesthesiologist! ???
Though my post is about all remote Dentistry jobs, the most information I found was for Dental Billing positions. I located a video for you to watch that explains where the field is headed and the required certification time frame.
Unfortunately, the company’s video I decided to share is no longer operating. This does not take away from the opportunity itself whatsoever. Wherever there is a void in ANY business sector, there is an opportunity to delve into or open up a new market. Not many jobs were found during my search, and once I found one or two resources I noticed that there weren’t many! Though there are virtual Dentistry positions available there are very few and mostly related to Dental Billing.
Concluding Thoughts: There is ample opportunity to create your own Dental Billing Services company. It takes a short time to learn the skill necessary to be successful. If you are already in the field apply to open positions. Those who may be new or who want to start a venture of their own, there are resources available to help you along your journey! Much success in all you do!
