onDiem has announced a new partnership with Higher Learning Technologies (HLT), the developers of a leading mobile study app for dental professionals. HLT and onDiem will work together to provide HLT’s network of more than 70,000 dentists and 30,000 dental hygienists with career development resources as well as access to temporary and permanent employment opportunities. In addition, dentists and hygienists in the onDiem professional community will have the chance to augment their existing training and advance their careers by way of HLT’s tools for life-long learning.
“HLT is a true innovator in the mobile learning space. It’s had over a quarter million dental professional app downloads in the past three years alone, and it is the clear industry leader in study tools for dental and hygiene coursework and board exams,” says Joe Fogg, CEO and founder of onDiem. “COVID-19 has displaced thousands of dental professionals who may have been looking for their first job, or who may be seeking work after being laid off. We’re excited for the opportunity to work with HLT to help students, new grads, and seasoned professionals find permanent and temporary work when they’re ready, and help them on their career journey. We’re also excited about the possibilities this partnership offers professionals on onDiem’s platform.“
"onDiem’s mission is to transform the way that dental offices operate, and this aligns with our mission to transform the way that dental students and dental professionals learn, " says Alec Whitters, CEO and cofounder of HLT. "This collaborative partnership accelerates both of our missions and provides great combined value to the dental community. During these unprecedented times, technology can and must be leveraged to provide accessible and trusted resources to solve the many challenges that these professionals are facing.”
