Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – North Riverside, IL – October 8, 2017
Horrible pay! Everyone starts off at $9.00 even if you've had 10+years of experience! Horrible management and horrible dental team! They make you work your butt off for so little ! Wouldn't recommend working here.
Admin. Assistant (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – September 28, 2017
I was hired by a manager that was soon fired after; the new manager was very aggressive. the job consisted of cold calls all day long to reach a bonus that I quickly learned I would not receive with out any good explanation other than I worked less hours then others.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – September 22, 2017
The only thing that I got out of working here is the skills that they teach you, because you can take them with you to another job. The turnover rate sucked, people would quit because of how they were getting treated. All they wanted you to do is make phone calls all day to the same people 3 times a day to get them to come in for dental work. The doctors are over worked. You could make goal and they wouldnt give it to you.they would make up an excuse of how what you did wasnt good enough. The pay sucked, they would fire people if they didnt catch on quick enough, all they cared about was making goal, when it was a million other things to get done. The work hours were terrible. No room for advancement.
Dentist (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 17, 2017
These guys are bunch greedy/ pushy foreigners that prey on recent grads. They don't care about the patients and they are unethical. Be ware of any positive reviews as they are FAKE! A typical day is consist of 20 plus Medicaid patients that are randomly scheduled. High rate of turn over in front and back office. You're always working with dental externs and not experienced dental assistants because they get the dental externs at no cost. They use cheap dental material. Dentist doesn’t have autonomy as to what dental material/equipment they use. They have you sign a contract that ties you to the job. They have certain clause in there to trap you such as termination policy of three month. Be careful because when you put your resignation, they start adjusting your production so your checks are very small. You basically don't get paid for the last three month. You owe it to yourself to have an attorney look at your contract before you sign it. Be careful and stay away.
Dental Assistant/ Receptionist (Former Employee) – Portage, MI – September 14, 2017
Dental Dreams is only interested in making money off the welfare system. They dont appreciate their employees. They treat the patients badly. Management promises to work with your availability then gets upset for requesting days off
Other employess are nice
Short or no lunch. Management unqualified and rude.

Receptionist (Former Employee) – Portage, MI – August 18, 2017
Managers were very rude, got in trouble for asking questions 2 weeks into the job, I didn't feel welcome and was made to feel like I was replaceable and too dumb for the job. Very poor training and they jump down your throats if you don't get things right.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – July 1, 2017
I think nothing about this job is worth it. all they care about is money, don't care about what you might have going on. the pay is no worth the skill set that i have. management is horrible sure that is there.
DENTAL ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Lowell, MA – June 7, 2017
With a wide variety of doctors and patience i have learned all aspects of dentistry and patient care. This has also fined tuned my customer service skills. Some days assisting the doctors would be my primary responsibly, other days i would be a "floater". When being a floater my main responsibilities are the labratory, taking x-rays, coronal polishing, and helping all doctors and assistants with whatever they may need. From working here i have learned that i love working with children and assisting in extraction procedures.
Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – Fall River, MA – June 6, 2017
A typical day at Dental Dreams depended on what shift you were given. Morning shifts were on the slower side setting up and stocking rooms for the busy day ahead. Afternoon shifts were the busiest with cleaning appointments, emergency appointments, and restorations. It was a very fast paced experience which provided me to learn a lot in a short amount of time.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – June 6, 2017
The Lansing office in Michigan is a horrible place to work you are overly worked and treated horribly no matter how hard you work. Management will lie to you over and over again. No PTO no vacation days reasonable health insurance. No training manuals, so you're a basically just throwing out there to learn on your own ridiculous amount of daily calls to people who aren't even interested in the product.
Dental Receptionist (Former Employee) – Whitehall Township, PA – May 25, 2017
They overwork the staff and especially the doctors. Every month they want more and more. No paid vacation or sick days or 401k. Employees only get free dental because they make the dentist do the services for free. Manager was so rude and disrespectful had her favorites. Pay was very low for everything that was required even house keeping duties were our responsibility. Glad I left this nightmare.
monthly bonus we busted our behinds for
Everything starting from pay to not being appreciated
