Located in West Des Moines, Iowa, Plaza Dental Group is a full-service oral and dental hygiene provider.
Dr. Steffany Mohan, owner and operator of Plaza Dental Group, felt confident her HR matters were under control with her Professional Employer Organization (PEO) provider. What Dr. Mohan didn’t know was that not all PEOs are created alike. In 2012, her PEO provider was investigated by the IRS, and Dr. Mohan found herself with an IRS lien. Finding herself suddenly left without any HR support, Dr. Mohan had no time to lose in finding a company to provide the HR infrastructure for Plaza Dental Group needed for their continued success.
“We are a small company and choose to partner with Oasis for some simple, but very important reasons. We appreciate having a partner for our HR needs and one that keeps us apprised of changes that affect our company. We also know that we have support whenever we need it. We have been extremely pleased with the service and resources available with Oasis.”

Plaza Dental Group needed a trusted HR partner, a company who they could rely on to provide a continuity of services and allow Dr. Mohan and her team to focus on their patients. Knowing the pitfalls of working with an unstable provider, Dr. Mohan contacted Oasis, a local and ESAC-accredited (Employer Services Assurance Corporation) business solutions provider, for assistance.
Oasis was sensitive to the timeframe in which Plaza Dental Group needed their HR services restored and made the onboarding process quick and simple. They also reassured Dr. Mohan that ESAC is considered the gold standard in accrediting Professional Employer Organizations, with over 40 required standards in ethical, financial and operational proficiency.
With Oasis, Plaza Dental now has a wide variety of HR offerings at their disposal. Oasis manages their payroll and payroll tax administration. And Dr. Mohan and her team are set up with a wide-ranging benefits package, including access to health, dental, vision and life insurance. Additionally Oasis administers all of the benefits for Dr. Mohan’s employees and partners.
Plaza Dental Group had two different needs—a solution to their immediate crisis and a long-term partner for HR support. During the initial phase of the relationship, Oasis was able to make sure there was no interruption of services for Dr. Mohan, her partners and employees. Payroll and benefits remained in place so Plaza Dental owed no back-pay and there was no interruption in payroll taxes to the state or the federal government. Oasis has also proven themselves as a trusted partner for HR services. When Dr. Mohan acquired a new practice in 2015, Oasis completed all HR processes for the acquisition in a matter of days and ensured a smooth transition for employees new to Plaza Dental. The ability to grow the practice was powered in part by the focus Dr. Mohan is able to give to running her practice and ensuring bright smiles for her clients, instead of focusing on her HR matters.
