Our doctors join us from a wide array of career paths. Sometimes they’re straight out of school, a residency or a specialty program. Or they may be filling in extra days while building a private practice, leaving private practice, moving from other dental companies, or relocating from other locations. Our doctors are graduates of the finest dental schools around the country, as well as the top dental schools around the world. Depending on their experience, our doctors start first as Associates and receive expert training in all aspects of general dentistry and one-on-one supervision to ensure mastery.Apply to all jobs
