I have been working at Coast Dental Services full-time (Less than a year)
- Help is available when you need it
- I’ve never met mean/rude office staff
- I have been working with some of the worst doctors I’ve ever met. Currently working with a doctor that is doing negligent work, is rude to patients (blaming them for his bad work).. I can’t even sleep at night knowing what he’s doing to people. Cementing crowns with open margins, leaving fillings unsealed, and all other work with the highest level of laziness and negligence. He should not be practicing but they won’t fire him because NO DOCTOR WANTS TO WORK FOR THE COMPANY. There are a couple exceptions, but I would never let a doctor working for coast come near me or my family. I knew the company’s reputation was bad, but I didn’t know it was this bad
- Managers are so overworked.. they basically have to commit their entire life to the company
- unrealistic expectations as far as numbers go.. we work with Medicaid patients.. they aren’t buying Invisalign.
- old office equipment. Why are we still using paper????? They’ve been promising digital equipment for years. It’s never coming.
- deteriorating facilities
- office staff is blamed if the doctor is not producing. I personally cannot change the doctors behavior or ethics.
Advice to Management
The terrible doctors that you allow to stay are the ones tarnishing your reputation. Does ANYONE do any quality control?? Patients are getting the lowest qualify in care! Once you update the equipment, I’m sure it’ll be easier to find quality doctors.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Coast Dental Services (Tampa, FL (US)) in September-2009.
The Director of Recruiting called me within 2 days of me submitting my resume on Careerbuilder.com. She was very pleasant and this was a preliminary phone interview to see if it would be a fit. She asked a lot of general questions about my recruiting background as well as the different companies I had worked for, very standard stuff. When we got to the compensation piece, that was when things went bad. It seems they wanted to pay someone rock-bottom for this position and it was lamost half of what I was making currently and she even mentioned that I was making more then her! The experience was very nice overall and the process moved along well. It wasn't a fit from a compensation standpoint.
Reasons for Declining
Salary was too low.
