5th Year as 1st Place

For the fifth consecutive year, Permanente Dental Associates was named #1 in the 100-499 employee category in the Healthiest Employers of Oregon awards, hosted by the Portland Business Journal last week.

PDA has participated in the annual awards since its inception a decade ago, placing in the top two spots in our category during that time.

PDA-HR’s Grace DeGallier, who leads our Wellness Program with our Wellness Committee, accepted the award at the ceremony. Our partner Kaiser Permanente Northwest took #7 in the 5,000+ employee category.

PDA’s Wellness Program intentionally programs activities around four pillars: fitness & nutrition, connection, mind & energy, and planning. Programming changes on a quarterly basis, as directed by our wellness committee – made up of our dentists and professional staff who support the business.
