    I have been working at Pacific Dental Services full-time (More than a year)


    I initially had reservations working for PDS due to the corporate reputation. However, I am so glad I did. PDS has exceeded every expectation I’ve had. As a dentist, I am solely able to focus on my dentistry. I do not have to worry about insurance, hiring/firing employees, marketing, etc. Before PDS, I worked in private practice. My work life balance has vastly improved since switching. Other pros include the amount of free C.E. at my disposable, which is usually very expensive. There is full benefits (medical, vision, 401k, etc) which is unheard of in private practice. I am so happy I took a chance with PDS because it has brought my career to the next level.


    Occasionally open extended hours (7PM) and Saturdays. However, I worked these hours in private practice as well.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Dental Services in December 2018.


    After applying, I received a phone call from a general recruiter. She helped me set up a phone interview with a regional recruiter who then scheduled a time for me to visit the location I was interested in. Overall it was pretty laid back.
