    A great place to work is one where you trust and enjoy the people you work with, and enjoy what you do.

    I have been working at Pacific Dental Services full-time (more than an year)


    Autonomy to practice dentistry how I see fit. A great backing and support system which is interested in growth and success. Fun family like co-workers. Advanced technology, nice offices, modern dental equipment. My experience with PDS has been very positive. I love the team I work with, we are like a family.


    Not a con for me, but PDS makes you work hard and they book your schedule. If you don't trust the people you work for there can sometimes be a feeling of production before patients. I have at times felt this feeling, but have been convinced through much consistency that PDS, is more interested in patient satisfaction more so than production from patients. I have also found out however that patient satisfaction leads to production. The cons of PDS as an associate are similar to the same issues that exist in private practice.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Pacific Dental Services.

    Interview Details

    I received an initial phone call to set up an interview. The second phone call was the actual phone interview. Nothing was difficult about the process. The recruiter said they would pass along my information to managers in this city and that the managers wouId call me soon. I did not get a call but instead received an email saying i would not be moving forward with the interview process. Basically, I was overqualified for the position but the recruiter felt there were other applicants "better suited" for the position. There was no further explanation.
