Dental Hygienist (Full time) (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – July 18, 2018
I started working at Afdent shortly after I obtained my license in dental hygiene. The one caveat is that it is really hard work and a lot is expected of you. The best part is that the knowledge I gained from working there is invaluable. There's so much you don't learn about the dental field in school and you learn so much about dentistry while you're there. You receive insurance benefits, the opportunity to earn vacation time and a 401k as well as CE courses being paid for by Afdent, which is nice especially since most dental offices do not provide insurance benefits. There is also a workout facility on site for employees. Another downfall is that you get a "paid lunch" which means that you have no scheduled lunch time and you work one into your schedule between patients if you can however, they are good about making sure you can work in 10 minutes to eat if your schedule is full that day. Overall, it's a good place to work if you are just starting out.

Front Office Staff (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – October 18, 2016
This is a fast paced and busy office, but our work days fly by and everybody helps each other out. We have a big staff, but despite the size, it still feels like a close family. I love my co-workers! There is a lot to learn since we do so many things under one roof, but I enjoy learning new things and being able to help people in so many different ways.

Afdent is a great place to work. The environment is busy and fast paced yet very pleasant and friendly. Many of the staff members have been a part of the Afdent Team for over 10-20 years and I think that says a lot about the company in itself. The staff becomes more like family rather than just co-workers. The benefits are a huge bonus to working here!
