Ummmm…….I hope the owners will put him in his place or that office will have a very high turnover. I would never work where I am not respected. Respect goes both ways. He is not superior because he is a dentist. I’m not sure the owners will be able to tone this guy down…..he may be looking for another job soon.

Document by keeping notes, dates and times with exactly what he said and you said. You need to go to the owners and make them aware of this suspicious dentist. This does not sound like a safe work environment. Your intuition is talking and you must heed the warning. Just because he is nice and intelligent does not mean that he can’t be violent etc… You are still young and naive. Intuition……pay attention to it. Keep us updated!!

Sorry that you have to deal with that but being that he is not the practice owner can you take your concerns about him to the practice owner directly? I would try and schedule a sit down meeting with both him and the owner and express how uncomfortable you are. express that you work hard. hope this helps

I have a fairly open relationship with our DDS and if I sense he is worried about something I will speak with him about it and encourage/support him. He is also younger and a great DDS! However, at times he is unsure of himself and his capabilities and I can tell when he is nervous. We talk it out and support each other. Everyone needs support and reassurance. 🙂 He may be paranoid. . But this doesn’t necessarily mean he is crazy or mean. He may just need to know you support him and believe in his work. I don’t think you are naive 🙂 Try letting him know how happy you are to work with him and that you think highly of him. That may be all he needs 🙂 Good luck! Keep us posted!

If you have a good, open relationship with him, maybe next time he flips out, kind of laugh and say relax, we’re not talking about you, we have other things to talk about other than you. If said in a joking, not mean way, perhaps he will wake up to the realization that the universe is not conspiring against him. If you don’t have that kind of relationship, I would take it to the owner because seriously, you should be able to open your mouth and speak to your coworkers! Sorry you have to deal with this! Keep us posted for sure!

Oh yes this would not go over well with me…being cordial with coworkers is something he’ll have to just get over…
