The culture: A true family atmosphere, where mutual respect is paramount. “Since staff is cross-trained, we always are there for one another to cover the needs of our practice as they may arise. Being able to respect and look out for one another truly makes our place unique in so many ways. Everyone seems to love working here! We have had many staff move away, and come back to us over the years,” one employee shared.
Perks: Office outings have included bowling, wine tasting and a murder mystery dinner show, to name a few. The doctors have been known to “surprise” staff with various bonuses such as ice cream or gift cards. Staff receive no-cost continuing education opportunities.

The office also works with a number of charitable organizations offering free root canal services to in-need kids and adults.
The inside scoop: “Recently, we had a couple of staff who were out on leaves of absence for medical reasons,” one survey said. “Recognizing how this can leave those staff members in a financial bind, our culture is such that our employees donated their PTO to those staff members who were out to lessen the hardship during their time off.”
