CareCru is the creator of Donna™
A virtual dental practice assistant, powered by AI, that grows and manages dental practices. Through Donna, dental practices are able to more effectively grow and manage their business, while drastically enhancing their patients’ experience. Hiring Donna is like adding three world-class team members to your practice—a front office assistant, a marketing specialist, and a practice consultant.
Donna needs no supervision. She manages a task from start to completion, with intelligence. She logs her correspondence and notes directly in your practice management software the same way you would train a staff member to do so.
By managing some of the more tedious, mundane tasks, Donna allows the front office team to focus their efforts on higher value activities, such as patient interaction and treatment acceptance. Donna is the front office’s new favorite team member because she sees an area that needs improvement, she rolls up her sleeves and gets right to work.
The culture? We are an ambitious team of no-nonsense, risktakers that thrive in a swing for the fences culture. We are positive, passionate, and a lot of fun to work with. We take no shortcuts and constantly strive to be the best in the world at what we do.
We’re always looking for fresh talent to join our amazing team of hackers, hipsters, and hustlers. Think you have what it takes to join the Cru? Get in touch—we’re always up for connecting with new faces.
