I have been working at Gentle Dental & Orthodontics as a contractor

Pros

It is imperative to note that this applies to most locations throughout the state of California but especially the most metropolitan locations.
No pros to consider---Its corporate dentistry. This company attributes little value in their staffing and protocols from the ground up. Corporate minions subjugate these networked practices and everyone working within to the actuarial demands of insurance companies. Visit any office and see for yourself.

Cons

It is imperative to note that this applies to most locations throughout the state of California but especially the most metropolitan locations.
Poor facility maintenance, poor patient protocols, poor insurance plan pools, and likely the lowest compensation in the industry. This clearly reflects on patient care. Reviews for all the separate practices in various locations speak for themselves. Check all the big "review" websites and you'll read for yourself.

Advice to Management

It is imperative to note that this applies to most locations throughout the state of California but especially the most metropolitan locations.
My advice to applicants: Consider every other option first
My advice to Steinbrun: Start over
My advice to patients: Consider carefully whom you select to render you your dental care.

    "a Copycat company"

    Pros

    Management pay scale is good.

    Cons

    Field employees are grossly underpaid. Lack of communication between Sr Mgmt and field offices.

    Advice to Management

    Differentiate yourself from other Dental Companies. Stop copying BrightNow, Western and PDS. Have a clearer long term strategy. Listen more from field workers as your middle managers are clearly out-of-touch with what exactly is going on. Show more appreciation to the dental assistants and receptionists.
