I work for the 3rd company mentioned above, basically, it comes down to the following.
- Production is what is important overall.
- if you are not producing enough for the company, then you are at fault even if you barely have patients becuase no body trusts an office where the DDS changes every 6 months to a year.
- It seems like nobody wants to say, you need to overdiagnose, but it seems like it is a low key thing that they want you to do in order to reach the numbers ( opinion, I can not deny nor confirm)
*I work in hygiene and I am expected to make a certain amount every day. If I make below of what is expected of me, I get told, " you need to raise your numbers ". I get many patients with healthy numbers and a few 4s...... But rarely get 5s, in terms of probing depth. So, I can't really make a lost of money if my patients are healthy.
Many of my colleagues are working for this company and are unhappy and can't wait to leave and go to private.
People who have been with this company for many years say, it's a good place to start at, but in long term, it is difficult to stay because you refer endos, and extractions. Apparently they expect the numbers to be accomplished at the rate of crowns, fillings, and more crowns.
