A 50-year-old female asked:
Having a squable, is there such a code between dentists not to steal another dentists assistant?

Free enterprise: Employees are free to work for anyone they want. I do not know how one "steals" another dentist's employee. An employer can make an offer and a dental assistant can accept or refuse the offer. What's important is for all parties to be up front and respectful to each other. Each employer can make their best offer. Sufficient notice by the assistant should be given.

No such agreement: That would fall under restraint of trade legislation. If a Dentist needs a new staff member he sill advertise in/on all the usual platforms. A staff member from another office may choose to respond to the Dentist's job search. Free enterprise.
