Community Description:
Located in South Central Kansas, this county offers those who live here the best of both worlds - big city conveniences blended with the benefits of a comfortable community filled with a prosperous atmosphere. There is the vibrancy of a city determined to thrive and progress, yet without the big city problems of air pollution, rampant crime, traffic jams and socioeconomic battles. Residents enjoy their central location just a few hours from the Rockies, Ozarks and the metropolitan areas of Kansas City, Denver and Dallas. There is a large selection of cultural arts, entertainment, and outdoor recreational and sporting activities. Quality educational systems (both public and parochial) and also a local community college are available. We strive to make a work environment that places employees at the center, empowering them with the tools they need to succeed. When the dental staff is succeeding, the community is receiving exceptional care, which is our number one goal. However, we know that sound patient care won't happen without first creating an organization of satisfied, productive dentists, hygienists, assistants, and other employees. We hope that you are not only interested, but the type of person who is ready to meet and serve the great citizens of Hutchinson and the surrounding community!
