A Seriously Fun Company Culture
Taking our culture seriously must be in our blood! We know how important company culture is to your work-life, and we treat it that way. We’ve clearly defined our culture in Nine Pillars and strive to live by it every day. It’s at the heart of what we do, and we wouldn’t be the same without it.
The Nine Pillars include the following:
- Humility: We use humility as our basis for learning. It allows us to let go of the past and change who we are.
- Personal Honesty & Responsibility: We work hard to be personally accountable. We eliminate excuses from our lives.
- Gratitude: We are grateful for the opportunity to work. The happiest people are those that have learned to be grateful for the small things.
- Team Loyalty & Respect: We respect co-workers because we accomplish much more as a team. We do not gossip, we look for the good in each other.
- Individual Compassion: We do not judge others. We know that each person is doing their best to overcome their weaknesses.
- Development & Learning: We focus on our own development and have faith that everything else will continue to fall into place.
- Relationships & Customer Service: We make customer service our passion. We are in the relationship business, not dentistry.
- Health & Balance: We emphasize physical, emotional, and spiritual development. We seek balance in our lives to find greater health.
- Happiness & Fun: We love to have fun! Happiness spontaneously comes out when we treat ourselves and others with kindness.
The Nine Pillars serve as the foundation of everything we do. Our goal is to build one another up so we can continue to provide better and better service to our patients, and these pillars guide us towards that goal. If our culture seems like a good fit for you, we’d love to have you join us!
