    I have been working at Hawaii Family Dental Centers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company, but very family oriented. I see constant improvement in what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. Open to new ideas and input from all employees. Always trying to teach us why we are doing something or changing something instead of just telling us to change it. Works to make the team cohesive, from Managers to front and back staff and dentists. Uses feedback to improve processes.
    Room to grow and cross train as availability is open.

    Cons

    Communication isn't always what it should be.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work with all team members to make sure they are involved and feel appreciated. Offer support and recognize when team members are overwhelmed.

    I worked at Hawaii Family Dental Centers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, semi-flexible hours, 401k, dental benefits, Dr.'s and co-workers are good.

    Cons

    It was a family feel before new management. Now patients are treated as numbers and the focus is for financial gain, not for patient care. The receptionists have to 'hit goals' and if not, they get scolded for not doing small things that pertain to numbers vs. the many numerous things they already do for their overbooked schedules. Some managers don't manage, instead they boss people around and that's why there is a high turnover rate. Their at will policy is truly 'at will.' They fire many people for nothing. 2nd question yourself if you're going to apply for them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees instead of your own ego's and show people you actually care.

    Pros

    Great support. They want you to grow not just professionally but personally also. The company is all about connection. Connection between team members which will carry over to patients.

    Cons

    This is a fairly large size company so some may feel like they are invisable but rest assure, if you do your best, someone will see it.

    Advice to Management

    For the executive team- have lunch with some of the employees at all the centers. They would really appreciate just some one on one time and won't feel so disconnected with the exective team. I think when you share a meal with someone, you create a bond.

    I worked at Hawaii Family Dental Centers full-time

    Pros

    Good amount of resources and working with talented staff

    Cons

    Management played the blame game often and always micromanaged without valuing the hard work that the staff already presented. Training for my position was very weak and I learned most of the things by myself or from making mistakes. Management/Admin favors many people within the company and that is very easy to see.

    Advice to Management

    Value the hard work and dedication given by your workers. Focus on the care of the patients instead of making more money.

    Pros

    Getting to know my co-workers and patients, LOVE MY BOSS, incentives offer to gain when getting rates, medical/dental benefits, ideas to share to help others

    Cons

    Working on Saturdays, lots of responsibilities

    Advice to Management

    Consent changes- recommend changes monthly or every other month, Training should be the same person or 2 (Checkin/Checkout) only because employee gets confuse and to be in the same page.

    Lots of changes to doctors schedules. Start time and finish time should remain the same for all dental assistants to have a better flow throughout the day.
