Pacific Dental Services

Company Description

Founded in 1994, Pacific Dental Services® (PDS®) is one of the country’s leading dental support organizations, providing supported autonomy that enables dentists to concentrate on clinical excellence and the highest levels of cost-effective comprehensive patient care. PDS originated the Private Practice+® model to enable dentists to focus on their passion: serving patients. PDS also pioneered the concept of Modern Dentistry so that dentists are equipped to combine advances in the latest technology with the best operational practices and procedures, highly skilled support staff and a commitment to ongoing training and education. PDS continues to grow, with over 750 supported dental offices across 19 states and plans to expand into several new markets. PDS has been on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in America for the past 10 years in a row. PDS aims to be the provider of choice in all the markets they serve, helping supported dentists to develop Patients for Life™.

Pacific Dental Services was built on a foundation of eight core We Believe values and a culture of service. Through the We Serve program, team members are provided with eight hours of paid volunteer time each year to serve in their local communities. At the regional level, PDS partners with KaBOOM! to build playgrounds for children in underserved communities, often combining these events with Pacific Dental Services Foundation mobile dental clinics. Serving with the PDS Foundation, team members also provide much needed donated dentistry to Guatemala, Fiji and Ethiopia through international service trips. In addition to better equipping and enabling communities to better serve themselves, these trips also have a life-changing effect on the volunteers who give their time, resources and expertise to help people in need.
