    Incisal Edge Introduces Inaugural List of Dentistry's 32 Most Influential

    PITTSTON, PA --(Marketwired - December 06, 2016) - Measuring "influence" is a little like measuring love, or the water view from an apartment terrace. It's a formula that includes a few numbers, some guesswork and a whole lot of you-know-it-when-you-see it.

  • Dr. Jacob Dent, PDS®-supported owner dentist and PDS Institute® faculty member, authored “4 Steps Every Dentist Can Take to Serve Autistic Patients," which was published in the Summer 2016 issue of The New Dentist Magazine. Click below for more:

    I have been working at Pacific Dental Services full-time (More than 3 years)


    I love the company I work for! They offer so much room for growth that I see myself here till i retire. It's more than a job it's a career. Constant training to keep everyone updated on the new and improved technologies and everything dental. They give back to the community with many events they sponsor i.e.: We Serve Day, Braveheart, Mobile Dental Clinic. Great bonus system and they truly give back to the employees in Christmas parties, XP event, and appreciation days.


    Really only con is that our medical insurance has such a high deductible you'd think with company with so many employees they'd be able to get a pretty good rate for better insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pacific Dental Services.


    The recruiter for the position contacted me via email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview was about 15 minutes long. The recruiter more or less tried to sell me on the position, then learn about me and ask questions.
