What The Dental Assistant Does

Dental assistant jobs are the backbone of our affiliated practices. You make sure patient treatment runs smoothly. You prep patients for oral exams, assist dentists throughout procedures, assist clinicians in obtaining and maintaining patient histories, complete radiographic images and intraoral photos, educate patients in oral care, and ensure the sterility of instruments. (Whew. We’re tired just thinking about it.) As both a patient and clinician advocate, you are a fundamental part of the Perfect Patient Experience®.

What We're Looking For

We’re looking for people who are quick thinkers, not just people who move fast. You must be an attentive listener who can address problems, issues and suggestions constructively. You have high moral and ethical character, such as the ability to maintain compliance with the American Dental Association and federal or state regulations. Essentially, we’re looking for our hero.

What’s In It For You

In addition to the limitless career roadmap that awaits the highly-competent, self-motivated dental assistant, PDS® offers a competitive compensation package including medical, dental and vision benefits, 401k savings plan, company-paid holidays, vacation and personal time, as well as tuition reimbursement. At Pacific Dental Services, our quest for excellence inspires everything we do—starting with our desire to acquire and appreciate the most qualified, committed associates. We encourage team members to develop their distinctive talents and strengths—and embrace an entrepreneurial spirit that rewards individual achievement. This mutually-beneficial relationship creates a tradition of family at Pacific Dental Services.
