Nikki Paffenroth

Director of Recruitment

Phone: (608) 712-7890


Nikki Paffenroth leads the recruitment team at Edge Advisors.  She uses a consultative talent acquisition approach and takes time to deep-dive into your goals, clinical procedures you enjoy/would like to add to your clinical suite and the type of practice you feel you’ll succeed within.  From there, she’s with you every step of the way:  providing tips on interviewing best practices, peeling back the curtain and maintaining transparency with the practice’s search, assisting with contract negotiations, helping to ensure the practice has an onboarding plan for you and following up once you’ve started.  Nikki’s hard work and dedication to finding the hard-to-reach dentists, quick locum tenens situations, and part-time dentists has led to her reputation of the “go-to” person in Wisconsin for recruitment needs. It is her mission to help practice owners and associates by aligning their practice philosophies and goals to ensure a long-term fit.

We would love to share our knowledge with you and help you find the best possible fit as you look to transition your career. Most of the associateship opportunities and practices for sale opportunities Edge has are in the Midwest Region, but even if you are looking to practice outside of the Midwest, our offer to help still stands. We are here to help to preserve private-practice dentistry and find win-win situations for all!  You can learn more about Edge Advisors, and the services we offer on our website:
