    I have been working at Coast Dental Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I recently joined Coast and I’m happy I made the jump from my previous DSO. I’ve been lucky enough to join a great team who gave me a warm welcome & a great onboarding experience. This is somewhere that I feel like I can see real career growth – a lot of the management team started in an office. I feel like I’ve finally found my home here.

    Cons

    Would love more PTO at some point

    I have been working at Coast Dental Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I just became a DA so I was a bit worried about going to Coast as I'd heard it was still heavy on paper charts and film x-rays, but I'm glad I gave it a shot! I love how new my office looks, and there are still some paper charts, but the office is digital so they're still converting some of the old charts, which I get. No sign of film x-rays, and I love the team I joined. I've got a great doc in the office and the support of my manager and the other DAs!

    Cons

    Nothing major, but I wish I got more PTO

    I have been working at Coast Dental Services full-time

    Pros

    I've been with Coast for several years, and I've seen the company go through a number of changes. It seems like we're finally turning a corner, with a new hygiene VP and a great new compensation plan which means that I can make even more money given how good I am. Benefits aren't bad and PTO is good as well.

    Cons

    Only that it's taken so long to get to this point

    I worked at Coast Dental Services full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It did pay the bills.

    Cons

    Over worked. Under paid. NO RAISES! Bonuses are hard to reach for most offices. Call center keeps framing patients in the schedule. We must accommodate all these framed in new patients. Assistants have so much on their plate but gets reprimanded for overtime which we didn't cause. The call center did and the pressure management geta from upper management. This company treat D.A.'s like crap unfortunately.
