Mission: Our vision is to be The Greatest Dental Company in America. We do whatever is in our power supporting dentists and team members who provide the highest-quality dental care to patients of supported offices. We implement this vision by treating every challenge as an opportunity ...
On August 18, 2018, over 622 PDS-supported dental offices participated in the 8th annual Smile Generation Serve Day – a day when dental services are donated to community members who wouldn’t otherwise have access to the oral health care they need. Over 5,000 volunteers across 20 states helped provide 2,700 patients with $5.6 million of donated dentistry. Stephen Thorne IV, CEO of Pacific Dental Services, visited several offices in Southern California and Nevada on this day of service. A true believer in service, Thorne has encouraged team members to serve not only patients but also their communities – to make a difference here and across the globe.
Within the next month, more than 200 volunteers from PDS in the Las Vegas and San Antonio areas are gearing up to partner with @KaBoom to build a playground for a community in need. The teams will work together for one common goal… to transform an empty site into a state-of-the-art playground for hundreds of children to use and further support a healthier lifestyle, encourage creativity, and promote child play. PDS has been a proud supporter of KaBOOM! since 2010.

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.
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.
