• Find ways to get patients to say commit to doing the dentistry they need and want.

• Find ways to contribute to the office culture.
• Focus on relationship-building in the office and with patients.
• Commit to clinical proficiency and reasoning (diagnosis).
• Be willing to lead and be a team player.
• Prioritize patients and offer same day dentistry options.

Who May Apply?

When is the best time to Apply?
It's never too early to talk with a recruiter specific to the area of interest. Most PDS supported practices begin talking seriously around the start of your fourth year of dental school. This gives you time to schedule shadow days during school breaks.
What Happens Next?
Upon reviewing your application, someone from the recruiting team will contact you to schedule an initial conversation.
The average full-time PDS-supported Dentist earns $160,000 - $390,000.
