    Okay but they try to call themselves a private office when they are really a clinic environment

    I have been working at Coast Dental Services

    Pros

    Great benefits, time off is allowed, they hire from with-in the company so advancement is available which is usually not the case in dental practices.

    Cons

    They try to act like it's about the patient when its just like any other coperation its about the money. Most expensive treatment is treated like it must be done right away even if it could wait. Many people get all their expensive crowns, bridges etc done, and AFTER they get their deep cleaning done. Doctor's diagnose and do treatment that less expensive treatment would have been as good but they want more money. People are not given options the most expensive treatment is usually what is presented. However it may vary depending on the Doctor you work with, many Doctors do not diagnose this way but the "cooperate" type doctors are all about the money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not try to market your clinics as private practice's when they are run and feel like a clinic.

    I worked at Coast Dental Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great mission directed at the customer/patient. Proficient training for employees. Provided great patient care. Responses and resolution to employee's issues are prompt.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is fallacious, broadcasting one thing but doing another. Code of ethics needs to be followed in all practices, not just where it is convenient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to backed-up by Corporate, otherwise the structure means nothing.
