PDS at a Glance
Starting a company from scratch isn’t as difficult as it sounds. It’s actually a lot harder. Before Pacific Dental Services® officially started in 1994, so much work and effort went into learning how dental practices operate – from payroll and taxes, to implementing new technology and dealing with insurance companies. So really, the story starts before PDS even opened as a company.
In June 1994, PDS supported its first dental practice in Costa Mesa, Calif. By 1997, the company had grown to support nearly 20 practices. The idea of having someone handle the dental practice’s administrative tasks was taking off with dentists. Dentists wanted to focus on patients and not the everyday aspects of running their own business.
