Pacific Dental Services® (PDS®) has just surpassed the 800th supported dental practice milestone, which is a significant achievement. But within that announcement is another story that’s just as remarkable: on December 31, 2019, PDS opened 11 new supported dental practices on the same day.

This incredible accomplishment provides countless new patients throughout the United States with modern dentistry and the latest, proven technology provided by PDS-supported dental practices. The 800th supported practice, Lake Barcroft Dental Group, is located in Alexandria, Virginia.

Stephen E. Thorne, IV, CEO & Founder of Pacific Dental Services“The opening of our 800th supported dental office is an incredible achievement. Our primary purpose is to support dentists so they can keep their patients healthier and happier. This remarkable accomplishment allows PDS to support even more dental practices throughout the country, so that more patients can get the holistic dentistry they need and want. We’re honored that so many owner dentists have trusted us to provide support services to them and their clinical practices. Although our support services network has expanded to 22 states, we remain uniquely local. Each PDS-supported owner dentist remains focused on providing comprehensive oral healthcare within their local neighborhood practice, one patient at a time.” – Stephen E.

Lake Barcroft Dental Group, led by owner dentist Alex Sharifian, DDS, provides comprehensive oral health care to adult and pediatric patients. Dentist, Aseel Mukbel, DDS, is committed to meeting her patients’ needs. “I’m thrilled we’re now able to provide patient-centric dentistry to the patients in Alexandria,” said Dr. Mukbel. “We’re also excited to be Pacific Dental Services’ 800th supported dental practice. PDS’ support allows us to offer our patients modern dentistry with CEREC CAD/CAM same-day dentistry, laser, online scheduling and more. We’re committed to providing our patients with the comprehensive dentistry they need.”

As thought leaders in the dental industry, since 1994 PDS has been committed to fostering a culture of Clinicians Leading Clinicians in Clinical Excellence®. For more than 25 years, their sole purpose has been to support dentists so they can create Healthier, Happier Patients®. PDS pioneered the concept of Modern Dentistry, allowing dentists to combine advances in the latest technology with the best operational practices and procedures.

PDS-supported practices are committed to bringing awareness to their patients about the link between oral health and whole-body health – what PDS and its supported practices call the Mouth-Body Connection®. Research shows that harmful bacteria and inflammation in the mouth can indicate and even cause systemic conditions throughout the body. Maladies of the mouth, including periodontal disease, may be linked with other medical conditions including oral cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and more.In May 2019, PDS announced its supported practices reached the 2 millionth CEREC CAD/CAM milestone, the first in the dental industry to hit this monumental landmark. “Same-day CEREC CAD/CAM technology is a huge differentiator for our supported practices, setting them apart from other providers.

We’ve made significant investments to enhance the tools and resources for our supported practices, to empower them to provide the best dentistry possible to their patients,” said Mr. Thorne. Pacific Dental Services, which announced last summer that for the 14th time it has earned a spot on the Inc. 5000, Inc. Magazine’s exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, is a leading dental support organization. Inc. Magazine has also named the company among the “Top Ten Heroes of the American Economy” in recognition of PDS’ ranking as one of the top job creators in the healthcare industry.
