Dental Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Valencia, CA – January 5, 2017
The location I worked at was very unprofessional. The manager would clearly play favorites, allowing certain employees to be late, take longer lunches, and even granted favored employees more days off. Management also clearly had outside relationships with some favored employees ultimately making it a hostile stressful work environment.

Office managers are jelous haters who stir up troubles leading to increased tendency of sue happy patients. Think they know everything. No degree. Liars, manipulators, they always got transfer to different ofices. New western directors turn this Corp into another low grade western dental

People will talk behind your back then be friendly to your face, definitely the manager. She also had her favorites and had a friendship out of the workplace with them, which is fine... but there was special treatment. And people got put on blast in mettings.
Mid management. (Former Employee) – Los Angeles corporate offices. – October 2, 2017
I worked in mid-management and the focus was to reduce costs even if it meant jeopardizing patient client care. I had arguments with executive management about not providing services as we needed. This goes against quality of care and quality of service to your client patients. Eventually because of my concerns I was suddenly fired from the company. No explanation no reason unexpected. Corporate is very cut-throat on costs and they do not want to spend any money however the partners have beautiful offices and beautiful cars. I think there needs to be a refocus of why they are in business.
Nice offices at corporate.
No real job security. No way to debate policy without fear of being terminated.
Front Office (Former Employee) – Washington State – March 6, 2017
West Coast Dental is the worst company to work for, They don't train anyone, your always working 10-12 hours a day with no lunch most days because they overbook the schedule and patients leave due the wait time. They have a huge turnover rate. When you make a mistake they talk down to you instead of teaching you. I would highly recommend to never work for this company.
No lunches, overworked, upset patients, poor management
Treatment coordinator (Former Employee) – Loa angeles – December 10, 2016
You are discriminated, you are on your own. honestly worked there because I needed the money, I was not happy at all. You can bring great revenue to the company, but if u are not liked, they will get rid of you. You are taken for granted
Dentist (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – September 19, 2016
West coast dental is a quick paced dental office where you see at least 2 patients per hour. The staff is very friendly. The management though from my experience, don't listen to grievances. compensation is only promised but not delivered. if you want to have experience with dealing with hmo, then this job is for you. if you are looking for a slow paced private practice then look somewhere else.
Office Manager (Current Employee) – Socal – September 8, 2015
WCD is one of the most game changing companies in the dental industry. Their are ton of growth opportunities but you have to be very diligent on voicing your needs and wants if you want to get ahead here.
Anonymous (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 22, 2015
this company was a pretty nice place to work and learn in. corporate and field managers are very nice, every day is very high pace and quick. New management implementations have cause this company to be less patient oriented and more money oriented because of this there is a higher quantity of customer complaints and a higher turn around. The hardest part of this job is actually seeing the effect on the patients due to this change.
Nice co-workers, Christmas and Thanksgiving lunches, birthday celebrations, 3 days bereavement, hour lunch breaks
5 paid holidays a year, not always able to take sate law required 10 minute breaks, high stress
