Perks and Programs

We asked Ballantyne Center for Dentistry to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • New Patient Award: We have cards to try and drive new patients to our practice. Each card has the employees name on it. Our employees give these cards out to current patients to give to friends or people they meet. When the new patient brings the card back in the employee gets $50!
  • Core Value Awards: We have 10 Core Values, Greatness, Efficiency, Teamwork, Compassion, Humility, Accountable, Respect, Loyalty, Integrity, and Empowerment. Every year we hand out nice wooden plaques at the Holiday party based on who lived the certain Core Value to its fullest. These awards are voted on by the team.
  • Quarterly Retreats: We do four Annual Retreats. Our first two quarterly retreats are designed around team-building, uncomfortable zone, and fun. We have done high ropes course, wilderness survival, being locked in rooms and solving mysteries to get out, been given a map and challenges to accomplish in the wilderness, and had motivational speakers come talk to us. Our last two retreats of the year are designed around family. We usually have a cookout with pool and games for the kids and the last retreat is a Holiday Party with spouses/significant others.
  • Quarterly Family Days: We offer free dental care to all our employees and their immediate families. We block out 4 days out the year to be able to see all the employees, spouses and children. We also provide everyone with food during the day and make it fun environment with music.
  • Bonus Program: Our whole team is put into a Bonus Program monthly. We have two of them. One is based off of Total Revenue brought into the practice each month. If we hit $380,000 by the end of the month each team member gets between $300-1000 dollars. The other program is based off of production if we hit certain numbers for the day between $100-$300 gets deposited into a team bank account that we use to award 2 team members with a gift costing around $100 for their hard work for the month. The person(s) awarded is voted on by our Team Leaders.
  • Business/Leadership/Dental Consulting: We hired a business coach to help professional development for our staff. This business coach has monthly phone calls with our team leaders but is offered to everyone within the organization. We set goals for each one of out team members and he talks them on how they can go about and achieve them.
  • Book Club: The team leaders once a month pick a book decided by the COO to read together and discuss how this could help our organization and also their teams. Once finished with the book the team leaders go back and incorporate different things with their teams.
  • Core Value Talk's: We started our "Core Value Talk's". Each week someone in the office will stand in front of the whole team and tell everyone one core value they love and how it helped them and can help others.
  • Lunch with CEO's: In 2017 we started "Lunch with the CEO". Each week one of our owners will take a team member to lunch. We want to make sure no matter your position your voice is heard by the very top.
  • Annual Shopping Spree: in 2016 and 2017 we implemented annual shopping sprees for the staff where we have given them $100-$300 in gift cards to spend on their selves. The goal is for them to see some new ways we can implement great customer service within our organization and also spend time bonding with each other.

How to Get Hired

We asked Ballantyne Center for Dentistry for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

We want any team member who joins our staff to live by a certain set of values (Teamwork, Humility, Empowerment, Greatness, Loyalty, Accountability, Compassion, Integrity, Efficiency, Respect).  We want our team members to pick a core value each day, week, or month and see how they can change a patient's life, a co-worker's life, your own life or a stranger's life.  We also expect most people who want to join our team to have certain education/experience in their department they are applying for.  We do very complicated dental cases in our office so we need good people who live by certain values and has worked in our industry before.

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

We would love for prospective employees to come in the office and meet us in person.  We are always keeping our door open for great talent.  We want folks who are interested in growing and learning.  When you come in for an interview you can grab our intention by being able to tell us how you have used your set of values and how you have used your education/experience as you have grown in your profession.

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

We will continue to look for talent for each department as we start another year of growth.   We recommend anyone who is looking to join an office that is fast-paced, lots of complex cases, and always searching for new more efficient systems to implement each year to stop by our office and speak to us about how you can help us by joining our team.  

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

We would ask for you to either give us a call or stop in the office and speak to one of our team members.
