    I have been working at Midwest Dental full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is excited about the future and sees opportunities to expand its footprint. I have been impressed with the company's commitment to emphasize great patient-care and support the local dentists.

    Cons

    The company is growing at a fast clip and with growth there is change and new approaches that undoubtedly need to be established.

    Advice to Management

    Strong leadership is in place. Continue to invest in infrastructure so the growth will be sustainable and there to support great dentistry.

    I have been working at Midwest Dental full-time

    Pros

    Peers were fabulous and understanding.

    Cons

    They will snag you with a bonus, possibly pay you an initial hourly then shift you to production percent of 19% or minimum of $23/hour. you never make more than the minimum . They do not value the Dental Hygienist. Run!!!
    Put so much administrative work on the Hygienist, leaves very little time to actually clean a patients teeth and do what we are licensed to do. Always leave short staffed up front and assistant and put the extra load on the hygienist because they are not paying them to do the extra. Only paid with patient in chair and poorly paid.

    Advice to Management

    Top heavy Corporate Management with whips on the worker bees.

    Pros

    I just can't find any.

    Cons

    Unorganized, old equipment, NO HOLIDAY PAY at all for hourly employees (didn't realize that until I was a month into working there), terrible pto accrual rate and your are suppose to use your pto to make up for Holiday pay, TERRIBLE benefits with high deductibles and only covers 80%!!! Don't bother working here!!! Dead end place.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together!

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

    Pros

    Coming from a competitor corporate dental office, I began my journey with Midwest Dental on a rocky start...wondering if I had made a mistake. Within a couple of months my region was taken over by a new Regional Director that has changed my career with Midwest Dental for the better. Most often we have a boss that sees numbers, but for the first time in my life, I do not have a boss...I have a leader. If you have not experienced the difference, let me tell you what a leader actually is. Someone who has the company goal and philosophies at heart, that supports you and your team to accomplish greatness with the knowledge behind the specific office struggles. We ARE NOT just another office in a vast field of corporate profit. We are individualized by our geography, our patients wants/needs, and most important, the team that stands behind the office. I have seen change throughout all of Midwest that has directly influenced the betterment of my office. Until Midwest Dental, I have never actually seen change that was promised put into action. Midwest Dental offers a Support Center in which every employee can access. They have professionals from every department (HR/Insurance/Patient Complaint/Training...the list goes on), that you have access to with any struggle you cross. They actually SUPPORT you! I am happy I found Midwest Dental....because I have found a team, and a work family that makes going to work everyday worth it.

    Cons

    Yes Midwest Dental is a corporation, in which you will find change doesn't happen overnight. The difference is...Midwest Dental actual makes changes and strives for better continuously. Yes this also means there are more hoops to jump through at times to get to your solution...but that is the nature of an employer with hundreds of offices. Thought must be put in for the bigger picture of the company and the ripples each choice creates. You have to truly ask yourself what you want from your employment opportunity. If you need answers/action immediately, maybe a private practice is more what suites you. If you want to be apart of an organization that makes choices that will benefit every office, you may have some wait time...but the results will come. You will not be apart of one single office making a difference in dental care, but a force of 100's of offices working together to change oral care for patients everywhere.
