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


    Competitive entry level pay. Plentiful opportunities to develop within the company. I am valued and truly enjoy my coworkers. I look forward to coming to work.


    Schedules are constantly in flux. Health benefits are costly. My biggest con is being stuck in a chair for the majority of the time.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific Dental Services in May 2016.


    Professional and found interviewers personal and engaging. Was able to see clinic options in person and visited with personnel in each office. Met later at a restaurant with several other interviewers, got to ask many questions and felt very relaxed.
