Associate Dentist in Queensferry, Flintshire
on 11 August 2022
Best in the area
I ve been working at MyDentist Queensferry for one year. The team is very suportive and enjoyable. The manager is always there to guide you and ensure you have all the necessary materials to deliver the best dental care. They have a clinical support manager on site who can provide clinical advices.Pros:- very good management- suppprtive for cliniciansCons: sometimes can get busy but the receptionists are always helpful.

Terribly managed practices
This is an awful and poorly managed company. Issues are never addressed so do not get resolved. Lazy staff get away with doing nothing all day.Managers have poor unprofessional communication skills and do not wear their uniform so they look scruffy and have no clinical knowledge so have no basic understanding of dentistry. Avoid, corners are cut here.

Company/practices undervalue and underpay staff....
Lovely clean, large open practice with a strong and fair practice manager and lead receptionist. Pros - Felt valued, company paid for training, supportive practice manager.Cons - Face has to fit, large groups of women equals a sniping and gossiping culture with 'clicky' groups. Confidential information aired within staff areas, concerning patients and staff. No room for progression unless someone leaves. No toil accrued even though you spend a LOT more time there than contractually agreed. You have to be very self-motivated to study, there is not a lot of time available for mentors to witness your work (if this ever happens). Low pay, even for qualified nurses. You may be lucky to get over £10.50 p/h. Saturday work included, though most nurses avoid coming in like the plague. You work with the same dentist every day, meaning no rota or lack of opportunities to learn new skills. Short shadowing interval for new employees, then you're dropped in it and left to sink or swim due to staff shortages. 'Suck it up' attitude required immediately or you won't last five minutes. Not a positive place to work due to a mixed NHS and private practice.

Fast paced
Dental nursing is a full in fast paced job and if it is a career you want to get into and progress in there are lots of opportunities in this company.

Avoid!
The practice manager is very unapproachable. Most staff members have agreed they would rather ask another member of management instead of going to her for anything. Stuff that’s told in confidential is gossiped about and discussed behind your back, the whole practice will know you’re business within a short amount of time. Very obvious who’s liked and who’s disliked. Told we had to ask for dedicated time to do our coursework when we aren’t the ones that do the rota and it’s quite clear we’re needed in surgery over doing any work to contribute to the qualification. Not much support when you start, just get your jabs and basic coursework done so they can get you straight into surgery cos of their staff turnover. Qualified nurses aren’t offered any support for progression so most people get qualified and leave. Most Dentists don’t want student Nurses so there isn’t much support when it comes to learning in surgery. You don’t have the ability to stick with a Clinician, for some reason they change you every day so you never know who you’re with, even though it would be preferred by both Clinicians and Nurses to be constantly paired up. Multiple nurses have left due to their mental health. The practice manager will ignore requests and put nurses with clinicians they don’t get along with. Reception and Nurses don’t get enough recognition for the work they all put in. 12 hour days, less than minimum wage, even after you’re qualified it goes up less that £1 an hour.

Interview questions

The questions make it look like they are looking for professionals that have high standards, skills, ethics and morals regarding dentistry and patients satisfaction, but the work does not reflect any of that and seems poorly managed.
