Advice to Management

    I have been working at Western Dental Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of employees which have been with the company for years. Many of the staff and doctors in the office locations are great and hardworking.

    Cons

    The corporate office is not interested in having happy employees. In the three years I worked there in two different offices, as I was promoted, I had 8 different bosses because they all kept quitting due to being unhappy with how they were treated. Money and numbers matter more than patients. Its unfortunate that the minimum wage staff in the offices work very hard and are not ever rewarded for it.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of the extremely high turn over and stop blaming it on hiring the wrong people.

    I worked at Western Dental Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reasonable priced dental service that fills a need in the market place

    Cons

    The company has new ownership. They are cutting cost through aggressive downsizing. Don't know what the company will be like in the future. The company has a distrusting culture due to micromanagement by the CEO.
