What are the pros and cons of working for a small dentist office?

I have been offered a job at a small dentist office but I have never worked in a small office before.

The pros of working in a small dentist office are the close relationships you will form with co-workers as well as patients. Another pro is discounted services, and flexible lunch/breaks, leaving you time to pick up the kids from school or run an errand. some cons include poor benefits, lack of opportunity, and low pay.

The pros would be that you would get to know the patients much better as individuals as well as the dentist and staff. It would be a slower more relaxed pace. The cons would be that the benefits and bonus would probably not be as large.

Pros are its a small, quaint group to work with daily, cons are chances for advancement may be limited due to the small size of the office.

The only con I see is you may not hit if off with another employee. Smaller offices are usually more laid back, cover each other and are more forgiving.

The major pro is that working at a smaller company is nicer because you work is always more appreciated. The major con would be that in a smaller company you often have to work harder and have more tasks placed upon you.

Some of the pros of working in a small office are you can get close to both patients and co-workers. Cons include small less exposure to large groups of people.

I haven't worked in a small office personally, so my opinion may not be of high value to you. However, I would imagine that it would be less stressful due to the smaller setting.


Answer by  mightyspidey (1080)

Working in a small office setting will allow your boss to easily see your skills as you won't be one of 100 employees. However, in a tough economy, small offices can cut their staff down to the bare minimum, and being the newest employee there may cause you to be first on the "cut list".

You will probably get bonuses for working at such a small office and possibly higher pay than you would with a larger office. Dental benefits will be insanely good and other medical benefits will be satisfactory. The cons are that you are taking a risk at a business that may die out.
