I have been working at Pacific Dental Services full-time (More than a year)
I'm in love with this company. Named on of the Top 20 Places to Work in Denver, Pacific Dental Services is a fast growing, private company where your potential for growth is limitless. This is a company that appreciates hard work, and rewards you for it, not on tenure which is how I think it should be. That being said this job can be overwhelming at times and if you aren't willing to work hard and take that extra step you will go nowhere. I came from outside of dentistry, hesitant on making a career change and dentistry intimidated me. Being with the company over a year now I can honestly say I made the right choice! They have a full training program and have plenty of resources available to you. If you don't know the answer to what you're looking for, someone does and everyone is always willing to help you out. Continuing on what I said earlier, I have never been with a company where you can move up as quickly as this one. They promote from hard work and results and they have something for everyone. Whether you're a dental assistant who wants to be an office manager or an office manager who wants to be a dental hygienist, PDS is a company you can learn and grow from. I feel lucky to be part of such a great company that gives back to its community and takes care of its employees. Looking forward to many more years of employment with PDS!!
With an honest review comes honest cons (there aren't many). My biggest complaint would be that sometimes I feel the company is too focused on "production". Always a push to make more money and get your doctors making more money. The problem with this is I feel sometimes like getting that extra crown on the schedule is of higher importance than making a better patient experience. That being said I understand the company is a business like anything else, and needs to make money. Communication is also a factor. Being that everything is based in Irvine, I feel like the company plays the game "telephone" when handing information down. When I began in my office their were many rules that I was never informed of, or I was taught one way to do things when someone else did things a different way and it turned out that both were wrong. In while I don't view these as deal breakers or problems to deter me away from working for them, I just thought they should be brought to light.
Advice to Management
Improve communication and the training programs. Many things are missed or taught the wrong way or aren't taught consistently. An example of how training can be improved: don't schedule someone three weeks at an office to learn specialty and all that office had during those three weeks was Orthodontics when the office you are going to be placed at doesn't have Orthodontics. Simple things like this can be avoided. Other than that this was an honest review. I love this company and can't see myself anywhere else. Thank you for giving me this opportunity. Truly grateful to be a member of PDS!
