Meet Melonee Steele, the Newfoundland Tooth Fairy. Melonee’s company, MAS Placement Inc., is a dental staffing agency that serves the employment needs of both the dental office and the dental professional. She is committed to providing dental offices with immediate service for all their employee requirements while also providing employment opportunities for Dentists, Registered Dental Hygienists, Certified Dental Assistants, and Dental Receptionists.
Visiting a dentist office can be a scary prospect for many and it is often the job of staff to ease the patient’s fears. Melonee understands this role and thus it is the goal of MAS Placement Inc. to provide dental offices with quality staff members that meet or exceed patient expectations of quality care.
Having graduated as a Level II Registered Dental Assistant in 1992, Melonee has been working in the dental industry for over 20 years. She has worked in general dentistry, dental surgical units, pediatric dental surgical units, dental office reception and office management as well as having toured elementary schools and retirement homes to teach the value of oral health. While working as a dental professional, Melonee realized that her biggest success was the relationships that she built with her patients and the reward of knowing that she had helped someone through a difficult time. Comforting a scared child during that first dental appointment, helping an apprehensive adult gain the courage to undergo dental surgery, these experiences have emphasized to her the importance of having access to an experienced and understanding dental professional.
Opening MAS Placement Inc. in June 2013, Melonee has taken her experience of fostering relationships with her patients and applied it to the clients and job seekers that her business serves. She strives to develop long-term relationships with a personal approach. By developing these relationships, Melonee is better able to match dental offices with potential employees based on each party’s individual needs.
The strong relationships that Melonee has built with her patients and past employers over the years are the reason she started her business. Her first full time employer, Dr. Sandra Pannell of Edgepointe Dental Centre in Calgary, helped Melonee realize that anyone can be successful; you just have to want it. Located in the Goulds, MAS Placement serves all dental offices across Canada. We look forward to discussing your office needs.
