I worked at Familia Dental full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Familia trains it's employees and let's it's employees grow.

Cons

Some of the personalities amongst the Dentists are "Godly" and they do not fit in well with the standards of the company nor do some of the Dentists appreciate the wonderful staff that are working with them and are training with them (even after a year).

Advice to Management

All the dentists that work there need to be checked for customer service skils. Observations of the Dentists in cooperation with their Dental Assistants need to be checked on frequently, because if Dentists are given the "run" of the company the soul and heart of the Dental Assistants will be low because many of the Dentists have a "God" like complex when dealing with the Dental Assistants and sometimes with the patients.

All of our dental assistants were hired on for full-time work but were never given full-time hours.

    Pros

    They have a really beautiful facility

    Cons

    This was a horrible place to work. If you work here you have two bosses in your office and like 8 outside of your office. The ones in your office don't do what they need to and because of that the corporate bosses will suspend or fire you for your in office boss lack of skill. It's completely ridiculous. They company is so cheap they don't give vaccines to their assistants. They have roaches in the facility. The Dentist over charge for simple procedures and verbally abuse the assistants, and hurt children. The Corporate partners and owners and supervisors are also verbally abusive. The assistants are lazy and they all gossip about one another. They don't pay a hill of beans. You can make a better salary at The Gap. All in All this was a horrible place to work. I wouldn't go back if they paid me.

    Advice to Management

    Stop blaming your employees for your downfalls

    I worked at Familia Dental full-time

    Pros

    Growing company with decent salaries.

    Cons

    Corporate management is extremely controlling and has consistant tendancies to micromanage their employees. This includes cameras in the staff areas to make sure there are not personal conversations occuring at work. The salary was not worth the headaches that were caused by being overworked and underappreciated. Also, the benefits package was virtually nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and appreciate your staff. They will work harder for you and be more passionate about their work, which will better your business in the long run.
