Featured Review

Current Employee - Rda

I have been working at Western Dental Services full-time for more than a year

Pros

Co-workers for sure! I was hesitant to work here after viewing the review left here but I haven't noticed anything they mentioned. My experience has been amazing here, co-workers like I said are the... best they really make it fun working here. Our manager is cool, very easy to speak with about anything. Very clean office, everyone works hard to keep an it that way. The Dr's are also easy to work with once you understand how they do things, could be a little challenging at first if you're new to dental however they definitely teach you everything you need to know and you get to work around specialist which is always interesting. Highly recommend this office, come join the fun. 😎

Cons

It can get busy for sure but it's never really that bad, everyone is a hard worker which helps getting through the busy day.

Current Employee - Dentist

I have been working at Pacific Dental Services part-time for more than 8 years

Pros

I was a 30 year private practice dentist when I moved to California and was hired by PDS. I have come to see soo many pros to this forward thinking company that I would never go back. to private... practice. The support professionally is unrivaled. Exposure to new technology and training was so amazing Support by the company and my professional peers during medical challenge I went through was invaluable. Had I been in private practice I would have been in serious jeopardy on many levels. The management team and founder have developed an entity that describes how I see dentistry for the next generations of dentists and I feel fortunate to be a part of it

Cons

Not so many cons after 10 years . What I originally saw as cons, have become common sense practices and procedures that are necessary to move forward with this type of organization

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing, and that includes growing and changing and evolving
