What We're Looking For

Pacific Dental Services recognizes that as full-fledged dental assistants-in-training, you’ve initiated your journey towards clinical excellence. You’ve probably sacrificed quite a bit to get this far. So when you’re ready for that next destination on your itinerary — your externship — we urge you to choose wisely. Look for practices known as champions of education and professional growth.

Where you roll up your sleeves and start to get real matters.

That’s where we come in. Pacific Dental Services now offers externship programs tailored to your precise needs in all our affiliated dental offices. You’ll prepare and maintain instruments, equipment, and materials for a myriad of dental procedures — as well as relax patients and make them as comfortable as possible. Of course, you’ll perform four-handed dentistry and dental assisting under the direct supervision of highly-qualified dentists and hygienists. Our upbeat, hands-on setting allows you to sharpen technical skills required for license in your specific state. But it also brings to life the patient experience within the comfort of a calm atmosphere.

What We're Looking For

Any dental assistant (preferably attending an ADA-accredited school) who seeks to make a real difference in the rewarding field of modern dentistry and embraces the idea of a true mentorship can apply. All we require (besides a great team attitude and energetic optimism) is that you have: proficiency in coronal polishing and sealant placement; experience in concepts of patient counseling (postoperative care and general oral health); an understanding of evidence based dentistry; and excellent communication skills.

While countless programs exist for eager dental assistants ready to take their professions to the next level, why not trust your potential to one carved out by an industry innovator and nationwide leader? Just follow your instincts. Your future as you’ve always imagined it beckons…choose wisely.
