    Pros

    Easy job to get if you have no experience

    Cons

    There is a toxic environment of trying to control dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants. There are a lot of cliques, high school behavior, passive aggressiveness and unprofessionalism. Most of the doctors and employees are straight out of school or have no experience. You are better off working at Gentle Dental, another group practice or private practice. The pay is very low.
