General Dentist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 28, 2019
I wish I could speak up my mind to everyone and say how low I think of this company. They do not appreciate hard work, manager controls how dentists see patients and how long they take. There is a TON of pressure on production and numbers. If you don't 'produce' they will threaten your job and/or take away the minimum guarantee. Money is all they care about. They say that they have mentors and people that will help you, but that is a total empty promise. No one will help you. You are on your own! So many different adjustments being cut from your paycheck for no apparent reason. They literally take your money from you. Trust me when I tell you, do your research. The money they offer with the locations is not worth it AT ALL. You could do so much better elsewhere. They make you see 30 patients a day, who care if you are in the office until 8:30PM?? Not them. Who cares if your shoulder hurts? No them. You don't even get a thank you at all. You barely even get a lunch break, let alone a balanced life-work environment. The employees are rude to dentists, and no one shows any respect to dentists or any appreciation. The front desk will switch around PPO/Medicaid patients based on which dentist they like more. They will manipulate the schedule based on how they want to make goals and get bonus. They do not care about patients. They have patients walk out every single day because of wait time. Even if patient's show up super late they will still see them. They will have about 60 patients booked for each dentist everyday. If another dentist calls in sick, they won't cancel themore... patients and just have the other dentist see extra, extra patients. During the last 90 days of you giving them notice to leave, you will see so many adjustments, you will be threatened to pay $500/day for every day you call in sick. They will seem like they care about you, but they really do not. Trust me. Trust me when I tell you, this company only cares about money.less
This work place can cause an anxiety issue or even a nervous breakdown.

Too many patients not enough care. They push the managers to make Doctors see more patients. They cause the managers to over book the schedule, that's why patients complain about the wait times. The managers are told on a constant basis ( not by all the regional managers) that they can give their two weeks if they can make goal or "if this isn't for you". They pay you a salary that is not enough for what you are doing and tell you that if you make bonus every month that it will get you to what your asking for. They tell you that bonus is possible every month but it really isn't, unless you pack the schedule in a way that is ridiculous or take people off the schedule and still have them on the side but not on the computer. It's really hard to meet their goal. Most managers that meet goal monthly are taking patients off the schedule and putting the or rather Printing out the route sheets and putting them on the side. The owners may not know this is happening not the regional/brother in law but this is how it's done. This is what a manager has to do to make bonus on the off months. The poor receptionists get an ear full every time they don't make their numbers and patients get called three or four times a month, it's an awful way to run a business. It's a revolving door at most dental dreams clinics. With all staff including the managers. If they offer you a position just say no. You'll be better off.

Company does not care about their employees and they have a lot of favoritism. It is really unorganized and the work is never done properly. There was many occasions where patients would come in and they would wait up to 2 hours to be seen.

I give this company a bad review. poor management, not a professional setting. But i did learn a lot of good skills that would help me to advance me to a better position in the dental field. The hardest part of my job was the lack of communication between supervisors employees and dentist and lack of organisation with employees and patients. The most employable part of this job was that i was able to give make my opinions and ideas to accomplish better service to our patients.

Dont work there. Horrible management, unprofessional culture, no career prospect, disrespectful to employees, low pay, no benefits. Extremely high turn over. People want to get out as fast as they can.

Not a company I would recommend. Too many bosses and not enough teachers. Management can be okay at times and then sometimes they are just unreasonable. The most enjoyable part of the job was my co-workers.

The hours are long and there is no telling when you are getting out. The good thing is that you work 3 - 4 days out of the week. Another bad habit is that if equipment gets lost everyone working that day is responsible and it comes out of the paycheck.
Billing Collector (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 12, 2018
Dental Dreams is a Terrible company to work for. No paid holidays, vacation time acculumates 2 hours every 80 hours a paycheck. Although, they give a flexible schedule the stress level and the amount of work management expect to be done is unrealistic. No security in this job, constant termination amongst employees. End of the month reports are required no matter what day it lands on, this is something that is not explained during the interview.

This company could care less about its employees! All they car about is money and making more money. You can read all the good reviews but don't be fooled they have all the current employees fill them out to boost their ratings. If you want to work for a company who pretends to care about employees and patients then this is the company. The dentist are the ones who care but they are so overworked they can't do what they feel is proper treatment. I only gave 1 star because it made me
