We're thrilled to announce a partnership with our 700th PDS-supported owner dentist, Stacey Howes, DDS, FAGD! Dr. Howes joined PDS in August 2020 and is now the active owner dentist of River Point Dental Group and Orthodontics in Sheridan, Colorado. Her passion for mentorship was a key reason she decided to join PDS. In her new role, she looks forward to guiding new dentists and helping them achieve their highest career potential, all while providing the highest level of patient care to the community. Our vision of becoming the Greatest Dental Company in America would not be possible without team members who share that perspective. Thank you, to each of our supported owner dentists, for your passion and commitment to clinical excellence as you continue to lead our supported practices across the country. You make us smile!

    Called by a recruiter and was passed onto the next step. I was contacted the next day by a regional director and scheduled a phone call for the next day. I was then invited to see an office location and be interviewed by a few members of senior management. I then asked when a decision will be made, but was told there was still another step. I was contacted by other member of senior management by phone and they conducted their interviews as well. I waited a few days and reached out to see if a decision was made and was told the candidates are still being reviewed. The process has been over a 3 week period and still no answer.
