    I have been working at Western Dental Services full-time

    Pros

    Western Dental has a long history. They have been around for over 100 years. With that longevity comes experience, leverage, and the ability to make improvements quickly and with adequate resources. The company has made strides to develop solid compensation programs and incentives ranging from financial to career development. Team members and providers have opportunities to enhance their career trajectory in a forum that most other companies and private dental offices are not able to provide.
    Western is growing and building in to the dental home for the entire family with all specialties and finance programs available under one roof.

    Cons

    I would not call this a con, but rather an opportunity. With growth comes the need for more team members and the support in the offices. Western is always looking for talented providers and team to join.

    Pros

    Western Dental offers both full time and part time employment which is great for Dental Hygienists since full time employment is hard to come by. The pay is competitive and they also have a good bonus structure in place for Hygienists. Dental Hygienists are treated like providers at Western Dental, and Hygienist have authority to make diagnoses based on evidence based research while being supported by the dentist in their diagnosing and treatment recommendations. This company adheres to OHSHA standards and guarantees a safe and clean work environment.
