I have been working at Western Dental Services full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Western Dental is a great place to build experience and has a great training program for business managers. The monthly bonus can be very lucrative.

Cons

The business manager position can be very stressful at times with the amount of pressure to meet goal. Working with the managing dentist can become challenging depending on your working relationship.

Advice to Management

The software and processes designed by the company need to be stream lined to prevent unnecessary data entry and human error. The company tends to focus on upgrading programs and not changing existing problems.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pretty flexible scheduling, low-pressure if you have the right staff. All about appointment book management and production

    Cons

    Regional managers (practice development managers) get to do the real managing. BMs mostly ensure high sales....and that's about it. Not a lot of analyzing reports or budgeting or any other useful skills to add on your résumé. Lots of HR violations.

    Advice to Management

    Give BMs more responsibility so they feel less like sales managers. Get a stronger HR department.

    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.
