BonaDent Dental Laboratories: Covering all the Bases for Work-Life Balance
Posted Mar 25, 2014 in Labs & Profiles
Headquartered in Seneca Falls, NY
Owner: Bruce Bonafiglia, CDT
200 employees across three locations
Striking a work-life balance is a constant challenge for many of us. How can I squeeze in a workout? Who will watch the kids? When will I fit in a haircut or get the laundry done? And what’s for dinner tonight? If you work at BonaDent, all of those answers can be found within the four walls of its new, state-of-the-art facility in Seneca Falls, NY.
BonaDent’s unique amenities truly make employees feel valued and taken care of: the in-house fitness center, onsite daycare, comprehensive wellness program, weekly visits from a masseuse, and a modern hair and nail salon. Angelo’s Café (named after Angelo Bonafiglia, Founder) provides convenient and healthy choices for breakfast, lunch and take-home dinners, and the coffee shop, Brew C’s (named after Bruce Bonafiglia, President) serves up gourmet lattes and coffee daily. Employees can even use the lab’s same-day laundry service for only $5 for a 20-lb bag (since the lab is also very community-minded, its laundromat employs disabled adults from a local non-profit agency).
But none of these amenities would matter in the long run if the laboratory wasn’t consistently supporting technicians’ career paths. There’s a huge commitment to education at BonaDent, and full-time, on-site trainers focus on building technicians’ technical and leadership skills in an effort to provide opportunities for advancement. “We’ve created an atmosphere designed to attract and retain the best talent in the industry,” says Bruce Bonafiglia. “Our entire culture is focused on advancing the careers of our technicians.”
