Disappointing first job.

Dental Assistant (Former Employee) Sacramento, CA

ProsSometimes fun environment, sometimes nice people to work with.

ConsFloor supervisor never had items in stock, assistants often fought over materials for their doctors, management knew of sterilization protocol not being followed and did nothing, my floor supervisor directly told me to switch how I did everything when the osha person came, got written up over x-rays because the managing dentist was a utter perfectionist, I saw treatment that patients didn't need completed nearly every single day. My first day there I was called into a meeting, the office manager stressed numbers and production to us all, even assistants who have no part in the financial aspect, which stressed me out.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffice managers- make sure that your floor supervisors are budgeting correctly and ordering the right materials to achieve the amount of production you want.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
