Your future with Pacific Dental Services.



Remember how you felt the day you first worked your dental magic? Remember the “rush” you felt as patients walked out the door—armed with knowledge and a renewed sense of commitment to oral health? If only your current office environment could surpass patient expectation, harvest your potential, inspire you…

We’ve got your 3-word answer: Pacific Dental Services . We haven’t forgotten the importance of atmosphere—of surrounding associates (especially Registered Dental Hygienists) with equally service-minded optimists. At Pacific Dental Services offices, you can expect a complementary team of problem-solvers who strive to make a difference. This begins fittingly with our extraordinary clinicians. Our first-line, “gold-standard” dental hygienists must:

· deliver the “perfect patient experience” by

· combining genuine compassion with surgeon-like dexterity.

They thrive off educating and counseling patients on dental health, plaque control, oral hygiene and nutrition. And they permeate each room with a confident yet kind demeanor.


At Pacific Dental Services, our Registered Dental Hygienists pride themselves on their lifelong commitment to education. We seek high-caliber professionals possessing degrees or certificates of hygiene from accredited colleges or technical schools (as well as valid/current state license). These energetic believers:

· take patients under their wing from exam to polish— while

· maintaining strict compliance with state, federal, and dental regulations.

They’re overall practitioners of health—team players who consistently generate the ideals and vision of the dentists they serve. Who knows? Maybe Pacific Dental Services has just what you need to find your way back—back to your once-unbridled enthusiasm for the “Dental Arts”.
