We are focused and committed to changing the future of dentistry in more ways than just leading clinical and technological advancements," said Jeri Doris, Chief Human Resources Officer for TAG – The Aspen Group. "While our investment is absolutely paramount to bringing better care to more people, it cannot be done without the power of diversity and inclusion behind it. Aspen Dental offices strive to mirror the communities in which clinicians live and work, creating an environment that is both inclusive for staff and welcoming for patients."

"To me, diversity means all walks of life working together to achieve the same goal. Our office has a wide range of personalities and ethnicities, and we all grow and learn from each other every day," said Amanda Tompkins, an Aspen Dental Lead Dental Assistant. "We work as one and do not care about any difference we all may have. I have learned so much about my colleagues, and I'm always growing my mindset and gaining knowledge about the culture of other countries."

Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group based the scoring on the review of publicly available data, interviews with HR professionals and an anonymous online survey of a diverse pool of employees at companies with 1,000 or more employees in the U.S. Respondents were asked questions about corporate culture, working environment and other subjects at both their own companies and others they were familiar with. The survey yielded more than 350,000 company reviews.
