  • I worked in an Urgent care dental office last summer. It is like any other urgent care..you get what you get. I'm a dental Asst. so I've worked with very good doctors and I've worked with hacks. Urgent care doc are usually just out of school which doesn't make them bad, just not as seasoned. U Doc also are not owners in the practice so the patients loyalty to them may not be what you would find at a private Doc. A lot of U Docs are foreign too so language sometimes is an issue......

  • The biggest problem I had working there is the staff was very over worked. There was a lot expected out of the asst. When staff are over worked they tend to not use good team work. That in its self leads to poor patient flow. We had patients waiting up to six hours before and the staff cared less.
    I hope this helps, if you have any other questions please flee free to im me.
    UC's are just that, they take care of the immediate problem, I hope you get ins soon so you can find a good private DDS. Good Luck!!
