    Pros

    Willamette Dental is a great place to work. I feel valued as an employee. Nothing that I say to management falls on deaf ears. I am paid fairly and I feel like Willamette Dental has a genuine interest in my personal growth regardless of what my long term goals are.

    Cons

    My work environment is pretty drab. I would change a lot about the office I work in if I could. It is a depressing and dark environment.

    Advice to Management

    I feel generally appreciated and heard by all management in the company. I feel that I am treated fairly and I appreciate that management is invested in helping my develop.

    Pros

    Company mission & core values are the forefront of every decision. High level of anonymity for practice managers to lead and run their office

    Cons

    High pressure for perfection, little room for error can make it challenging to take time off in when in management role.

    Advice to Management

    remember that managers are also employees and need some of the "employer of choice" treatment as everyone else.

    I worked at Willamette Dental Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great medical benefits. Good PTO.

    Cons

    Appaling favortism and nepotism. Complete ignorance of bad behavior by HR and Management. If you are making the company money or perceived to be doing so, you are lawless. Overworked dentists and hygentists - noncompetes make it hard to leave. High volume of patients with severe dental issues. Bare minimum, cheapest treatments, they advise patients even with dental problems to only be seen annually or less. Decades behind on technology, tools, materials and treatments. Facilities need vast overhaul. Use predominately Chinese labs. Long waits for paitients to get in. Very few specialty providers despite alarming need. Long hours. What you expect from a low-end managed care option. More importance for business bottom line than patients and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Find a moral compass. Be transparent. Senior level house cleaning necessary.
