Meg Dietzel, Ohio Valley Regional President, was instrumental in launching the Women in Dentistry Leadership Series that empowers female dentists, and she continues to be a mentor to young women at Patterson Dental. In the latest episode of the Just DeW It podcast from DeW Life Magazine, Meg discusses how she “Leads as a Woman” - including ways to prioritize self-care, the importance of mentorship on both ends, her advice to future female leaders, and how these past few years have been transformative for her career. #WeArePatterson #WomenInDentistry

Our new #InclusiveLeadership program is designed to help our leaders learn, discuss and build practical skills to help them become more inclusive and effective. Whether it is cultivating connections with those around us or identifying and addressing biases that limit people and constrain performance, the program has received positive reviews over the first several sessions. Here are two recent reviews: “Relevant and applicable, this interactive workshop did an outstanding job focusing on awareness and techniques to enhance our abilities as inclusive leaders at Patterson.” “This course really helped in my understanding of Unconscious Bias. The material is directly applicable to my role, and the course itself was high-energy and highly interactive. It was a really engaging learning environment, and the post-course material is helping me apply and learn what I took in during the class.” Thank you to all our leaders who have taken the course and shared your feedback, and to all of the HR and leadership development team for making this course come to life! #wearepatterson

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Patterson Companies (Dallas, TX) in Oct 2021


    Laid back, no tough questions the first go around. Waiting to hear back about a 2nd one. Everyone in the office was very pleasant and it took about an hour just as the scheduler said it would.

    What did a typical day in your previous job look like.
