Hygienist/Manager (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – March 20, 2019
I have worked at Legacy Dental for almost two decades. I value the phenomenal dentistry, the hard working and knowledgeable staff and the family feel of the practice makes provides a work/life balance that you will not find in other practices. The doctors are continually learning the lastest techniques and research the latest technology. Doctors are very fair and compassionate toward patients and employees. Most staff has worked at the office for 10+ years.

You see 1-4 patients in an hour. Most of your hygienst and doctors are very damanding. You've got to set up your room by making sure there is enough trays as well as supplies made for your daily patient load. You seat your patient, prophy, and floss them. Afterwards set the next apointment. The hygienist will come in and scale their teeth while you do the exam or clean up the other room, or the hygienist will. You've also got to do notes and write memo's about the patient.Then you've got to sterilize the instruments for the next patient. Occasionally you'll have to answer phones and help with treatment chairs. The work is very easy however the inflow of the amount of patients coming in and out can wear your energy out by the time it hits 10 o'clock. That's 3 hours worth of work. There is little team work in this company. If you get behind, (which you will) you've got to work that much harder to get caught back up. Some of the supervisors that will be your hygienists are controling and create hostile envornments for assistants they're in charge of for the day. Management treat's great assistants that go up and beyond like they're despenable and speaks about it to supervisors, patients, and other team members freely. I've seen really good assistants leave. The manager says "If you don't like this company you can leave and I'll give you a reference." This company is very diverse yet the higher management don't trust their diverse team members. No job is easy. The hardest part of the job is staying on time and getting everyone to work as a team. Not to mention being in hostilemore... envornments occasionally with some of the supervisors, and trying not to burn yourself out. The most enjoyable part working here is the patient base, flexible hours, food at the team meetings, and the group activities not involving work to get to know the team members that you work with when there is no chaos of the work life.less
Great patient base and flexible hours
Poor management, burnouts, very fast paced, no raises, poor benifits, pedjudice, hostile envornments
They expect a lot from you, nothing is ever good enough and rarely say thank you only when they need something. There will always be gossip, not organized at all but it is a good place to help you move up and get a bit of an experience due to it being busy. No benefits at all, nothing is ever promised so don’t expect anything in return.
Good place to start and get experience
Too much drama, and pay is not good if you have experience

It was hard working here. Dr. T is an amazing dentist but he didn’t allow for a learning curve and to get to know they way he did it. He expected me to know the second day in and would glare over his glasses at me if I didn’t do it right.

Nice people to work with. Everyone works hard and pitches in to help. Great team environment. They are respectful of one's life and work and needs. Everyone there is pleasant to work and communicate with.
