    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Willamette Dental Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I really loved a lot of things about working here. It is a very professional environment and for a long time I felt truly valued by the company.

    Cons

    I was no cause let go after over 2 years of employment with perfect job performance reviews. I would not recommend this place to anybody looking for stable long term employment. Management is eager to clean house all the time.

    I have been working at Willamette Dental Group full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits. Working four days a week is preferable to five...

    Cons

    So much micromanagement one can barely breathe! Also, there's a lot of gossip and negativity which goes unnoticed because it's all via the internal IM system. Not great if you already have performance anxiety.

    Pros

    Amazing team environment- everyone helps each other and has your back. They appreciate their employees and show it! Management listens to their staff and are there for support. Three days off each week. Offices are fully stocked with plenty of supplies. Excellent competitive salary. Other local offices available to work at when doctors are on vacation.

    Cons

    Late-running nights make super long days. Sometimes patients are double & triple booked & it's hard to stay on track.

    I worked at Willamette Dental Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent salary

    Cons

    Impossible to meet goals, salaried at 40 hrs/week but they expect you to work more than that (they overbook your patient schedule, which causes you to work late in the evening to complete chart notes and other admin. duties. They tell you you have freedom as a provider to to make treatment choices and options choices that you feel are the best for patient, but this is not at all true. They want you to do inexpensive, less costly treatment. They only allow patients to come in once/year for routine cleanings, even if patient prefers a 6 month cleaning. It was difficult for me to justify this and other treatment options to patient.
