Benefits Overview

Many dentists choose to build life-long careers with PDA. Some of our recent retirees joined PDA in its infancy and stayed for 30 years. The average PDA dentist has been with the practice for 11 years. There are many reasons behind the dentists' long-term commitment to the group.

PDA dentists and specialists enjoy:

  • An opportunity to become an owner in the business and build equity
  • A sense of camaraderie and a chance to learn from each other
  • Competitive base salaries and additional incentive-based pay
  • Generous medical and dental coverage
  • Employer-paid 401(k) Contributions
    (whether or not you contribute to it)
  • Paid Time Off
  • Four-day work weeks (36 hours per week, flexible schedules)
  • Minimal time on call (one week approximately every 1.5 years)
  • Opportunities to gain leadership experience
  • In-house CE training
