PerfectTeeth Perio Dental Assistant - Albuquerque (Cottonwood and Wyoming Offices) in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Company Overview

Perfect Teeth is a network of dental offices throughout Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona providing high- quality, comprehensive dental care. We understand the only way to build and sustain a long-lasting and thriving practice is by listening to our patients, addressing their chief complaints, taking care of their needs, and ensuring they come back. Our patient care philosophy has helped us grow to be the largest provider of dental services in the region, with 67 offices and more than 100 affiliated dentists and specialists.

There are a lot of dental groups across the United States, so what makes us different? Apart from the fact that we take care of the administrative burden, employees with Perfect Teeth enjoy a work/life balance rarely seen in other large dental groups. Our average practice is designed and built to have a private practice look, feel, and flow, so our practices have a much more intimate feel than most large group practices. Employees like this, and so do patients!
