    Positive Outlook


    Joined PDS after a year in private practice. Thought I'd try it out in my quest to find where I fit in to the dental world. Pros: tons of CE and most is useful, good Cerec training and experience, no manipulation of treatment plans or pressure to over treat, lots of new patients, very few emergency calls comparatively


    Cons: Low compensation levels (associates start at 24% of production.) Office manager RUNS the front office and lead dental assistant RUNS the back office, leaving the owner doctor as basically a puppet who has some say, but pretty much does what he's told. The lead assistant has a tight budget to stick to which can lead to weekly "what do you mean we dont have bite registration!?" conversations. The assistant replies with, "oh that should be here by Tuesday..." BUT I NEED IT NOW!!! That and lack of instruments yo keep up with a busy day. Maybe the most financial obstacle is the HORRIBLE insurance contracts (you'll do a crap load of $400 crowns, $42 fillings, and a fair share of $0 prophys, sealants, and exts.) Really makes it hard to get your production up when your working your butt off for ridiculous insurance contracts. PDS retards your growth as a clinician as everything that can, "should" be referred to the many specialists that come to the office 1-3Xs a month. I wonder if I can still do molar endo and difficult extractions as I haven't done them in a year. Technically you "can" do these procedures, though it's difficult to do a root canal when your assistants don't know how to set or assist for one. Not to mention getting into the middle of one and being told you don't have size 31 mm files. Owners can only buy 49% of the business and will always be pawns in upper managements game. Make no mistake, my owner doctor makes a decent living but he isn't the boss. He does what he's told by the manager, lead assistant, regional manager, regional partner, and Steve Thorne. Lots of people to bow too and even more mouths to feed.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say here. The business will continue to spread and these new docs will continue to get sucked into a career of depressing single tooth PPO/HMO dentistry. Private practice isn't for everyone, only those that want to be their own boss or at least have a say in the dental experience they wish to provide patients.
