Stay away
This company does not care about their employees , only focused on hitting targets. Manager lets bullying go on and pretends they dont see it. Manager is quick to point the finger when something goes wrong , even when it is their own fault. Over worked and severely underpaid!!!!! Never enough stock for dentists which makes them extremely stressed. Smiles only cares about their staff reading and signing off on policies.Dental nurses please don’t apply here , it is not worth the money or stress

Fast paced environment
Highly recommend working here if you like to keep busy. City center location, easy to get to. Staff and management are very welcoming and helpful. Can be stressful at times but with such a good team it makes it easier. Handy working hours, rota done in advance so you know your schedule for the month.

Love working here!
I have been with Smiles for many years and have worked in numerous roles over that time. Very flexible working hours and great work life balance. Shifts are busy and fast paced which suits me as there is zero time to get bored. A lot of the team have been here for a long time which is great for staff moral. Great place to work.

Progressive working environment
I have been with Smiles for over six years, the company supported me through my dental nursing exams both financially and practically and again when I decided to progress into Practice Management. The shift work suits me as I have a young family and I can either be finished work by 14.30 each day or not start work till 13.30 which works really well in my personal circumstances. The team in my practice regularly organize social gatherings and the employee of the month and Bupa Perks is proving a big hit. The hardest part of my job is recruiting qualified nurses, our entry point rate of pay is not enough.
Pros
Practice Manager Academy, Bupa Perks, shift work, Employee of the month, further education.

Weak management and draining atmosphere
A weak and inexperienced manager who the younger staff walked all over - issues never addressed or resolved to keep the peace.
No teamwork on reception just blame game when error would arise

Seldom get a break on reception.

No structure or format for efficient running if the clinic. Atmosphere draining- alot of talking behind backs.

I would advise anyone to watch their back of the youngest dentist working there (disingenuous and sneaky).
Pros
None
Cons
None

Hated everything about it
Terrible place to work. The management do not care about the staff at all. Everything is about the money coming in and gross misconduct, bullying and lies are everywhere due to this. They offer staff cash incentives but they never actually pay them. Hours are changed at a moments notice. The managers just vanish whenever there is a problem. I was luck if I saw mine twice in a week.
Pros
Free dental treatments
Cons
constantly changing hours, bullying, terrible management, lying to staff, misconduct

Stay away from this company
No respect. No support. Bullying culture.
Low pay. No bonuses. Not treating staff fairly and equally.

No interest in providing ethical healthcare.

Only profit orientated.

Terrible management. Managers are disconnected and don't really care - say they are going to fix issues, but never do.

Avoid!

Awfully run practices
There are worse places to work but Smiles is extremely low down on the list of desirable employers. Often underpaid and when issues are raised they are never solved. Equipment frequently broken and not fixed correctly. Several times I was be expected to see patients with broken chairs. I would advise any dentist to stay away if you can and find a smaller practice (ie not a corporate) to work for.
