You may qualify!

We pride ourselves on providing each and every patient quality care with a caring touch. The pleasant experience we provide begins with the first phone call and continues for each visit afterward.  Our welcoming staff works hard to ensure our patients' needs are met, and very often exceeded. One way we achieve this is through the many hours of continued education our doctors and staff pursue.  So often patients tell us how happy they are to have found such a terrific office with the friendliest staff around.  The largest majority of our patients are referred to our office from other satisfied patients.  We think that says a lot about who we are!

The ideal staff member for our team is friendly, caring, honest, cheerful, excited to learn, enjoys a fast-paced environment, willing to take full responsibility to get job duties completed, wants a career and not just a job, and gives back to the community through the many events our office participates in. Prior experience is a plus though it is not required. If you’d like to join our team, please submit your information below. Thank you for your interest!

"I have been an RDA for Dr. McConnell for the past 6 years. I started working as an intern as part of my curriculum for dental assisting school. Over the years I have gained so much experience in regards to patient care. One thing that I am most thankful for is being part of this special team. I always feel supported and loved coming to work every day. We all seem to be on the same page, and can always figure out ways and areas in which we can grow and improve. With that said, another thing that I love about working for Dr. McConnell is that he is a great teacher and always encourages us to continue to learn and grow. After 6 years, I was finally accepted into the dental hygiene program. I decided to make a commitment to further my education not only because I've always been interested in promoting oral health to our community, but also because our office offers the best dental hygiene services in the Bay Area. Our hygienists take pride in the early detection of periodontal disease and 99.9% of those diagnosed are successfully treated in our office. I sincerely look up to our hygienists and hope to be a part of that team one day."

"I have been working at this office for only 3 months but I have to say it's the best office I've had the opportunity to join. The team is absolutely amazing and everyone is on the same page. Dr. McConnell genuinely cares for his staff and patients which makes working here so special. I know I will be a part of this team for years and years ahead. Looking forward to making memories with this awesome team!"

 


"I have been working as an RDA for Dr. McConnell for almost five years now. I started working here straight out of school and I am so thankful I was given this opportunity. I can’t imagine myself working anywhere else! We have an amazing team here full of people who are passionate about this career. Everyone here genuinely enjoys their job and we are all very committed to helping our patients. I really enjoy the relationships we have with each other and our patients. We work hard but we always make time for fun and laughter too. "


"My name is Dr. Jake Banks and I have been an associate dentist for Dr. Steven McConnell for the past 6 years. Dr. McConnell hired me directly out of school following graduation. My experience working for him was fantastic. He is a terrific leader and has created a wonderful positive culture to practice dentistry. He helped me grow as a dentist and a person faster than I ever anticipated. Under his guidance I built a full time patient base of over 1300 active patients in less than 5 years. During that time, I was able to completely pay off my student loans and buy a home in Petaluma, CA. As a side effect of my great success with him I was able to purchase my own practice in my hometown of Reno, NV. This has always been a dream of mine. With his help, I was able to move forward with this dream much earlier than I ever anticipated. Dr. McConnell’s group practice is growing fast as a result of the top-notch staff, new technology, and positive culture. My decision to leave was solely a result of my desire to pursue my dream and return to my hometown. This is a tremendous opportunity for a skilled, ambitious dentist to work in a great practice in a great area. I highly recommend any qualified dentist who is looking for a superior associate position to consider this opportunity. "

My name is Courtney and I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist with Dr. McConnell for 11 years now. I have had the pleasure of being an employee and a patient of Dr. McConnell's, as I began seeing him at age 3! Our office is very clean, contemporary, caring, safe and progressive. As a patient I had nothing but the best of experiences… so much it inspired me to become a Hygienist! I love my career and feel that an enormous part of that is due to my work environment and the people I get to work alongside daily. We work hard to support each other and provide optimal care for our patients but at the same time we are silly and have fun together… a mixture that is very important to me! This is a wonderful place to work and build long lasting relationships!
