      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Starting pay was very good.....

      Cons

      I then learned why starting pay was good, they can’t keep employees! They do not care about employees or their patients for that matter. Completely disorganized, impossible supply budgets, and even more ridiculous scheduling. I saw patients wait 3 hours to be seen. Outdated, broken equipment is in every office. Their motto is make it happen with what you have! Some of the things I saw were disgusting. Even though they...

        Pros

        "Benefits" - that is, if you last more than 90 days Staff within office try to help - but are very limited because of constraints placed by corporate

        Cons

        Patient care is a low priority at the corporate level Multiple breaches of contract Didn't honor pay Didn't provide assistants, materials, instruments, and other necessary resources Way too much red tape Unorganized offices - systematically and physically Truly a mill EHR system is not efficient/user friendly Pushy and encourages short cuts just for the production Draw pay system (although you'll have to chase...

        I worked at Great Expressions Dental Centers full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Enjoyed my patients and the fact that I learned about the P&L statement

        Cons

        Doctors are out of hand-Unprofessional, think they can talk to staff any way they please and there are no repercussions. Company wants more patients to get scheduled, but is severely understaffed by choice and the pay is not adequate for the work being done. A lot of offices have one dental assistant and one person working the front. There is a feel of being micromanaged, which numerous reports are due during the week...

        Advice to Management

        Hire staff to have enough coverage so people won't get burned out Stop allowing providers to run off great staff members Train providers how to communicate with staff and most importantly, patients
