Former Employee as RDH and Currently Reapplying
Lead Dental Hygienist (Former Employee) – Downtown Seattle – July 6, 2015
I have worked as a dental hygienist for 14 years throughout Washington State--from a farmworkers clinic in Eastern Washington to private offices in the Northwest--and the only company I would really enjoy working for again is Willamette Dental Group (formerly Columbia when I was on board).
The opportunities are endless . . . I worked up to Lead Hygienist in the Seattle office within a year but, due to my flexibility, I was able to work on-call in their satellite offices throughout the state--from Bellevue to Bellingham--seven in all.
I guarantee you will be more fairly compensated than in any other office you will ever work. That is because they value your time and--get this--actually pay you for literally every minute you are working. Where else does that ever happen? Huh??
Yes, you will be working 10-hr. days plus every other Saturday but, guess what, Saturday was my favorite day to work there! Also, think about it--you will be able to schedule a doctor's appointment without asking for time off!
The other major thing for hygienists is that you have plenty of assistants who are able--and willing--to assist you. And you will love all your co-workers.
Can't go wrong with Willamette!
