Externship (Former Employee), Rowlett, TXApril 28, 2014
Pros: friendly eco workers, doctors and patients.
Cons: not many staff members
The typical day is I get there at 7:30 and I begin setting up the instruments/equipment for the doctor and turning on the computers/ x ray machines and seeing patients. I also take x rays, go over medical history, take blood pressure and then the doctor sees the patient and we do the dental procedure on them. I clean and sterilize instruments in the – more... whole back dental office and do anything I can for the front office even if it included answering phones or filing paper work or charts for the office manager. At 5Pm it is time to put away the instruments and sterilize everything in the office and turn off the computers and x ray machines. Then it is time to go home for the day around 5:30Pm. – less

Productive staff & Great Dr.
Orthodontic Dental Assistant (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJanuary 14, 2014
Pros: get to work with people who genuinley enjoy their job
Cons: patients who dont follow treatment plan, and break brackets further prolonging their estimated time to be in braces.
A typical day at work would be doing adjustments on patients, starting new patients, assisting the Dr. in whatever they may need,& going through treatment plans. Everyday I would seem to learn an easier more productive way to work with patients from Dr. Management is very knowledgable about guiding patients through the entire process.Hardest part of – more... the job is trying to get all patients out in a timely manner as to not interrupt their daily schedule. Most enjoyable part of the job is seeing patients at the end of their treatment happy with the results. – less

Monarch Dental
Dental Assistant Extern (Former Employee), Plano, TXMarch 24, 2013
Working at Monarch is very different than the way we were taught things in school so it felt as though I was starting from scratch when I got there and had to re-learn everything. Thankfully, I had two of the best assistants to help me and the best front office team so it did not take me long to settle in and learn how they do things.

Pros: i enjoyed the free, c.e. classes

I enjoyed my coworkers at monarch,and the insurance plan we had,with United Health Care.Our days were very busy on Wednesday, at that time,some days very few.A typical day at work was very busy ,in all department.So we were running with our necks cut off like chickens.We all help each other ,like sisters, and brother,but we also had our bad days as – more... well.It took us a little time to get use to one another,and we did.We became like one big family.When the days were cut short it made it very difficult to pay bills,and buy gas.That was the hardest part. I enjoyed the family conversations,and the hugs we gave one another.The management at that time was great,she was very understanding ,and fair about a lot of things,I learn how to make bleaching trays,mouth guards packing cord,making temp teeth. – less

Orthodontic Assistant (Current Employee), Dallas Fort Worth TXDecember 25, 2012
Pros: good work hours
Cons: bad pay! equipment falling apart! no raises! no advancment! they don't care about their employees
Can't keep managers. Keeps taking away hours. I've been there 2 years and less that .50 cent raise! Doesn't compensate for all the traveling we do. They took away all our benefits after cutting hours, Ridiculously underpaid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!They don't care about their employees.

Fun learning experience
Assisting doctor (Former Employee), Fort Smith, AROctober 11, 2012
This was my first job as a dental assistant. I began from scratch and learned the basics of assisting. Didn't do much beside assist Dr. This was a corporate office with many employees with assigned tasks.
Got along with everyone.
The hardest part was when ever I would do something wrong and felt very guilty for not doing it right.
The most enjoyable – more... part was being able to learn new things everyday. – less
