About Coast Dental
Why work for Coast Dental and SmileCare?
Coast Dental and SmileCare strives to make a difference in the lives of our patients and our employees. Our approach is unique because we are a unique Dental Service Organization (DSO) that is still managed by our founding dentist and family partnership. We do whatever is in our power to support our dentists and team members to provide the highest quality dental care to patients.
We make a difference
Our team members create smiles not just in our practices, but also in our communities. From participating in charity walks to collecting teddy bears or food to donate to children’s hospitals or local shelters, we are dedicated to helping people smile more.
#CoastFamily is more than a hashtag; it’s a culture. When one of our team members shared that she had breast cancer, our colleagues donned pink and sent her photos to show their support. During Movember, our team members don mustaches to show our support of men’s health issues. Time and time again, our team members (our family) connect with each other and our communities to show how much we truly care. We’re always looking for providers and team members that share in our val...ues and beliefs because we know that our service to our patients starts with the commitment of service from our employees.
Every day you walk into a Coast or SmileCare office, you can expect to work with people from different backgrounds and experience, but who share in our common interests and goals. Our diversity is one of our core strengths and it provides us with a remarkable perspective to face our challenges with drive and determination while our commitment to patient service brings us together.
Our commitment to service and to each other and our community is the recipe of our culture.
