I have been working at Smile Brands full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I've worked for Smile Brands for close to 12 years. I enjoy the family atmosphere and collective focus on supporting the practices and optimal patient care. There is plenty of advancement opportunities for individuals wanting to grow professionally. The Senior management is supportive and encouraging. Dentists like the complete freedom to provide custom treatment plans based on each patients unique needs. No corporate dentistry here. The pay is in line with the responsibilities and includes bonus opportunities.

Cons

No 401 K match opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work providing "Smiles For Everyone!" and continue to Celebrate.Everyday.Miracles.
    Invest more monetarily in support team members, (orthodontic clinical assistants, ortho specialty managers/treatment coordinators, patient relationship coordinators/schedulers), through competitive starting pay, increased regular pay raises, and more straightforward and achievable bonus structures
    Formulate and implement a non-owner specialist provider profit sharing arrangement

    Pros

    The Company's mission is to provide "Smiles for Everyone!” The focus is on creating outstanding patient/office relationships to have patients for life. In addition, we have a culture in which we celebrate everyday wins and give our teams the tools to be successful.
    We offer a full benefit package. Another benefit is having many locations with diversity in employees making our company a good place to grow and collaborate.

    Cons

    Being a large company, we have many processes to follow and policies in place; therefore, employees have less autonomy. However, we encourage employees to share new ideas and/or provide input.
