FAQ: PRIVATE PRACTICE + from Pacific Dental Services

Business Support Model Lets Dentists Concentrate On Clinical Excellence.



What does Pacific Dental Services do, and how many offices does it support?

Founded in 1994, Pacific Dental Services (PDS) supports dentists by providing business support services that allow dentists to1215-pacific-1 concentrate on clinical excellence and delivering the highest levels of cost-effective, comprehensive patient care. We support more than 400 practices in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Washington. Our goal is to add more than 60 supported offices per year, while continuing to open new markets — which will soon include Florida and Louisiana.

What is PRIVATE PRACTICE +, and what are the benefits?

This proven business model is based on providing business support expertise that lets dentists focus on the pursuit of clinical 1215-pacific-2excellence. Dentists supported by the PRIVATE PRACTICE + model enjoy more time, more income and more resources than clinicians who don’t have support; in turn, this allows them to concentrate on providing high-quality care. We call this “supported autonomy.”

Owner dentists have control of treatment plans, while, on the back end, PDS helps them boost income and reduce risk. Additional benefits include:

  • Ownership opportunities with a healthy work/life balance
  • Excellent income and benefits, including mentorship, paid continuing education (CE),1215-pacific-3
    malpractice insurance, health insurance and a 401(k) program
  • The ability to offer integrated specialties under one roof
  • Ownership of a fully digitized practice equipped with CEREC CAD/CAM, intraoral
    cameras, soft-tissue lasers, and digital charts and X-rays

Who is in charge of decision-making?

Dentists have complete autonomy in diagnosis and treatment planning, while PDS provides the business support to help the dentists run a successful practice. Mentorship and clinical support, if needed, are provided by owner dentists or peer associate dentists.

What CE opportunities are available to PDS-supported clinicians?

All clinicians supported by PDS have the opportunity for lifelong learning and mentorship through the PDS Institute. Offering more1215-pacific-4 than 500 hours of continuing education, it is the largest CE program developed by a dental support organization.
