Pros: great staff, good compensation, supportive management
Cons: vacation pay taken out of production
One of the things I enjoy most is the staff at my office. We all communicate and help each other as a team to provide high quality care; keeping in mind our motto "Patients First".
We strive to be productive, but still have fun on the job, putting our patients at ease while attending to their needs.
My regional manager is accessible and responsive to any concerns that I may have.
As an employee,I can leave my work in the office when I go home, and don't have the additional stresses of an owner dentist. I only take weekend call maybe 3-4 times a year since this responsibility is spread out between all the dentists in the region.
The benefits are pretty good, but I don't receive "real" paid time off, because if I request PTO, it is given to me, but taken out of my production, so it isn't truly earned vacation time.
