About Complete Mobile Dentistry, Inc.
Complete Mobile Dentistry, Inc. (CMD) started as a dental staffing agency in 2002. Dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants were placed in both temporary and permanent positions. In 2005, CMD expanded its services to provide on-site dental readiness exams to military personnel throughout the country. CMD’s staff now performs a thorough and accurate dental exam to prevent the service men and women of the Armed Forces from arriving in a deployed environment with dental pain or defect. In June of 2015, we reopened our staffing agency, now a national agency called Complete Dental Staffing. We specialize in providing ideal placement for dental offices of all sizes, ranging from last-minute absences to permanent placement. We provide coverage for dentists, dental assistants, and hygienists. Today, CMD continues to support Logistics Health Incorporated in their work with the United States Armed Forces. Through collaborative efforts, we hope to continually ensure that service members meet medical and dental readiness standards and therefore are able to service our country. It is an honor to be part of such an important mission.
