It has been great to have hygienists, assistants, and administrators to utilize during times of illness, vacations, and maternity leaves. DenTemps has always been attentive and professional. They always go the extra mile to help, even when it's last minute. Some of the temps have been such a good fit with our practice that they are now a permanent part of our team. Thanks for being there and doing such a great job!
