>Under trained staff

>Over booked schedules with no additional breaks

I must say that their Christmas parties are smashing

Wouldnt reccomend
The upper management doeant care about their employees. They would drop you without question. They are mean and expect you to move mountains but the pay you should just pick up the phone. It was ridiculous what they asked me to do in my time there. I would never work for a dawson dental again.

Will milk you for your time/energy/wellness
Company speaks highly on valuing patients but will not value their employees. Underpaid staff, overworked and stressed from clinical to admin staff. Pressure on practice leaders to book appointments to meet quotas. No time to use the restroom, expect to scarf down lunch, and don’t bank on leaving work on time. Promises on raises and bonuses will never be fulfilled. Most clinics are understaffed HR does not make sure staff hired are properly trained

Great girls. Poor management
Great benefits. Poor management. Criticize more than praise. Overworked and under appreciated.would rather work in a less stressed environment for less money. There is no job security. They whip through receptionists without thinking twice.I should have listened to the warnings from many in the dental community.i think I sold my soul to the devil...happy to be free
Happy to be free from thrre

Dismissed from my job for no reason other than bad financial management. It took 10 minutes to show me the door.
Not a very solid environment to base one's career.

I would never recommend anyone to work here, as they do not understand what they are doing when they hire real people.
Pros
They pay for courses for you, like CPR
Cons
They do as they please, even show you the door without reason?

Snooty staff and no work life balance
I do not recommend working here. Bonuses are promised but never handed out and they work you to the bone with no raises or appreciation for working long hours with no breaks

Overworked and stressed for the amt of $$ wasnt worth it!
Too many unreasonable expectations. Policies changed evry 1 to 2 mos. Mgmt at corporate head office always dictating our Mgr about NEW add-ons w/workload but pay remained same. 13 coworkers of mine left (2 laid off) and 11 QUIT within a year due topressure &small wage they received which wasnt worth it. Fake Mgmt were bologne to work w/. 1 yr was enough for me to LEAVE!

Ruined by corporate mentality
Dawson Dental used to be a good place to work until it was purchased by Dental Corp. Now it's more about money than people. They pay their Hygienists on commission only. Which I feel has no place in healthcare. On the plus side they offer health benefits for full time employees and the Christmas party is epic.

Dont work for Dawson
This company used to have a reputable name. It does not any longer. Managers are not proper leaders. They are DA's with no management training
Poor training, then you are left on your own. No consistency at all.

They do not even supply thier own dentists the tools needed to perform job duties. Constantly running out of things.

Work somewhere else. This company is going downhill.

Wonderful company with room for growth!
Dawson Dental is an organization that invests in its people. I started with the company by completing a week long learning program that really prepared me for my role . They seem to sincerely care about their people and want them to succeed and grow. I have to say, I've worked in many different dental environments and Dawson has really changed my perception of dentistry. My role is enjoyable and fun. My team is incredible and we work as if we are one big family.
I would recommend Dawson to anyone looking to advance their career in dentistry or would like a rewarding career in their current discipline.
Pros
gifts, bonus, benefits, friendly, support team

Great place to work
Love my co-workers and the management is definitely working on improving things in many different aspects of the workplace.
There is not much room for advancement, but job security is quite good.

Productive
I learned During this period, I have gained more practical knowledge/skills. My comprehensive expertise allows me to complete patient care with complete success. I am confident that my contributions would be a valuable asset. During my employment with DAWSON Dental, I was responsible for completing paperwork, scheduling, making phone calls and helping out the dentist, hygienists and other members of the clinic when needed.
