    I worked at Family & Cosmetic Gentle Dentistry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great working environment, loved working here for the past 4 years. Everyone at Gentle Dentistry are very welcoming and kind individuals. Great company to work for that shows appreciation to their employees and hard work.

    Cons

    The state clinics here at Gentle Dentistry might have a bad rep and some bad Google reviews in the past. Due to unappreciative patients that don't value a good service, and want everything in life given to them hands down.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for giving me the opportunities to grow and learn. For the last 4 years of experience. Will forever be grateful. Keep believing in individuals and giving them those chances to prove themselves.

    I worked at Family & Cosmetic Gentle Dentistry full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Your co-workers will be the BEST thing about this job. Pay/benefits were fair for the area.

    Cons

    Yikes..where to begin? The schedules are JAM packed due to being mostly a medicaid clinic. Patients are rude and ungrateful. Equipment was old and outdated, and often times we would run out of masks/gloves.

    Advice to Management

    Way too many cooks in the kitchen when it comes to management. Hardly ever did we get any guidance when it came down to operating at a clinic level. I understand to make a profit you need to make the schedules full but to what extent? Upgrades are desperately needed.

    I have been working at Family & Cosmetic Gentle Dentistry full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The environment that I work in is very friendly and relaxed. My coworkers make each day fun coming to work. I have never had such great management in a workplace. I am extremely happy with the pay and benefits that come with this position. You won't regret coming to work for this amazing company :)

    Cons

    Sometimes I feel that I care about the patient's teeth more than the patient does.

    Extremely tight schedule for patients (wish more clinics in area took state insurance plans) - Causes moderate stress

    I worked at Family & Cosmetic Gentle Dentistry full-time

    Pros

    I have no pros for this company.
    I believe the reviews being posted lately are company endorsed. They look too good.....front desk and 5stars? What front desk job would you ever give 5 stars and then end your review with people call yelling at you?!?! Not a normal thing
    ....patients may be upset or in pain but never had a patient yell at me in over 8 years........this say tons about the entire company.

    Cons

    Poor upper management, poor office management. I worked in several offices throughout metro area. It was the worst experience of my hygiene career.
    Equipment wasnt working or very dated also daily schedule is jam packed due to them taking mnsure options. Production goals are impossible to reach seeing several state patients daily. Then they say its just a goal......welp if the goal is unobtainable it may not be the best idea.

    Advice to Management

    Called upper manangement about office problems and cliquey girls who were very condescending and just in general hard to work with. Nothing was done. Also then called Charlie with my concerns and he disregarded them also and nothing changed. I seriously hope the cooperate side has been re staffed. I often see them trying to fill hygiene positions through temp companies. I refuse to take any shifts for these reasons. If this company has treated other employers like me, its no suprise no one wants to work for them.
