Aspen Dental – Why Work For Us?


Breaking down barriers to better care, better smiles, and better lives.

At Aspen Dental practices, we bring affordable, quality care to communities that need it. From small towns to city suburbs. And everywhere in between. We’re changing how the industry does business. So patients get the care they deserve. And professionals get the careers they want.

Aspen Dental practices are the fastest growing network of independently owned dental practices, providing professionals with outstanding practice support and highly lucrative careers. New practices open across the country every week, and they need talented people like you to help provide quality care to those who need it. 


Values of Aspen Dental Practices

From treating every patient like our very own mother to knowing it takes the entire team to get the job done to making sure we are listening to patients, our values are on full display every day. Below is a list of the words we live by – day in and day out.

  • We love a challenging mouth
  • We treat every patient like our own mother
  • We don’t just treat the mouth, we listen to it
  • The last thing we want to do is sugarcoat anything
  • For every mouth there is a solution
  • There is no “I” in Aspen
  • Every mouth deserves a second chance
  • We do business the same way we dentist: open wide
  • A healthy mouth equals a healthy business
  • Anything close to excellent isn’t

We love working on a mouth that needs some serious work. We love the mouths with 32 teeth, the ones with no teeth, and every mouth in between. We love helping the patients who need the most help. We love giving a troubled mouth a helping hand. We love taking on each and every mouth that walks through our front door.

Our Culture

To help you focus more on patients and maintain a healthy work/life balance, Aspen Dental practices are supported by Aspen Dental Management, Inc. (ADMI), a dental support organization that provides nonclinical business support services to licensed, independent dentists and teams. ADMI provides a full range of practice support including marketing, staffing, scheduling, billing and other time-consuming responsibilities.

It’s a business model that dentists, staff and patients can appreciate. After all, when dentists and support staff feel well cared for, their patients do too.

Caring for you at work, and at home

Aspen Dental team members receive a wide range of benefits to support their health, financial future and other needs outside work.

Health Coverage and Assistance

  • Team members working more than 32 hours per week are eligible for group health insurance, with plan options for individuals and families
  • In addition, all team members and their families receive deeply discounted dental services at any Aspen Dental location
  • We also offer an Employee Assistance Program to provide confidential counseling on substance abuse, mental health, financial issues or other personal matters

Protective Coverage

  • For eligible team members, disability and life insurance is provided.
  • Dentists receive malpractice insurance.

Savings and Security

  • All team members can take advantage of our 401(k) plan to help save for retirement and reduce their taxes. Participants receive a matching contribution following one year of employment
  • We offer flexible spending accounts, allowing you to place pretax wages in a personal account for medical expenses or child care
  • Plus, team members get special discounts from our retail partners such as Verizon, AT&T, Dell and Harden Furniture

Paid Time Off

  • All eligible team members get paid time off for vacation, sick days and personal time. Your position will define your eligibility, while your amount of vacation time is based on length of service
  • Professional development opportunities such as orientations, development programs, one to one mentoring, ownership education, and leadership retreats



We’re breaking down barriers in more communities than ever before. That’s why in 2014 we launched the Healthy Mouth Movement, an initiative designed to bring care to those who need it most and raise awareness about the importance of oral health throughout the country. 

The Healthy Mouth Movement has served more than 20,000 patients with the involvement of over 13,000 Aspen Dental volunteers. In total, doctors and team members delivered more than $13 million in free dental care. 

At Aspen Dental, you can work side by side with people who share your passion for doing good work. Philanthropic efforts include:

  • The MouthMobile - a 42-foot long dentist office on wheels that travels state to state providing free care to vets in communities where care may not be easy to access. The MouthMobile is handicap accessible and includes two operatories and digital X-ray equipment. Appointments are required and arranged through local non-profit partners.
  • Traveling abroad to countries like Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Tanzania, Peru and Jamaica to bring care to populations who have no access to dentistry.
  • Partnering with Veterans Affairs programs nationwide to bring care to our nation's veterans.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t leave RMs out of the leadership retreats. We are the ones working day in and day out to grow these doctors and help them reach their potential. If an RM has a doctor attending the retreat then the RM should be there as well.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aspen Dental (Houston, TX) in January 2014.


    The interview was great. Open-ended questions. Relaxed and casual. Recruiter was very nice to talk to, very friendly. Overall great experience. Most questions were pretty standard, and to be expected. So as long as you prepare, you will be fine!
