May is National Community Action month and we are eager to participate! Today at our Minnesota headquarters, we held a volunteer event that packaged 2,318 dental hygiene kits that will be donated to the Native American Community Clinic (NACC) in Minneapolis. NACC plans to distribute the much-needed hygiene kits during their open house that will bring awareness to their community health clinic and the services it provides to the neighborhood. The #PattersonFoundation donated $1,000 to NACC as part of its Dollars for Doers program to celebrate volunteering. We're proud to be active in our communities and thankful we can provide such a basic necessity to our nonprofit partners.

To celebrate Cinco de Mayo, our fulfillment center in Dinuba, California, held a salsa contest! Employees brought in homemade salsa and voted for which recipe deserved the blue ribbon. On top of the chips and salsa, they also brought in a local taco truck for all employees to enjoy. Here’s to a happy and safe Cinco de Mayo!

    20 minute phone call, was overqualified. Did not receive a call back (probably asked for too high of a salary). But I'm assuming that the next step would be to speak with someone who has some actual say in the matter. Having been in the industry - it wasn't very surprising for being ghosted.

    "Are you familiar with Patterson" "Are you comfortable calling on dental offices?"
