Former Employee - Dental Assistant in Sacramento, CA

I worked at Western Dental Services part-time for less than a year

Pros

Sometimes fun environment, sometimes nice people to work with.

Cons

Floor 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Western Dental Services full-time

    Pros

    Reasonable compensation. Good office people. Fast paced. Exposed to and learn new things every day.

    Cons

    Emphasis on production. Expectations seem a bit high initially. Lots of chatter about bonuses, but it's still just chatter. We shall see.
