    Re: Help with Dynasplint Trisma Device and corporate contact

    Don't overpay for a substandard product, you don't need a Dyansplint. Plus once you're done with it you own it and don't have to return it like a Dynasplint. Just think someone else has has your trismus unit in their mouth. Do you trust it's been cleaned effectively??? You'll be better off check this out: The OraStretch Press and TheraBite jaw motion rehab systems are handheld units designed to stretch a user's jaw to treat trismus, dysfunction and hypomobility. The devices use passive motion to stretch the user's jaw, joint and facial tissues for increased mobility, flexibility, and function.
    The OraStretch Press and TheraBite devices provides a curved, anatomically correct stretch for patients to treat or rehabilitate their jaw and temporomandibular joint. By utilizing a jaw motion rehab system, a user can increase their range-of-motion, improve their jaw and joint function, and reduct swelling and pain.

    I agree as a patient why would you rent a product from Dynasplint at $495 per month? You could just buy the TheraBite for less and insure that it's sanitary since it's new out of the box.

    I wish I found this posting board before I decided to take a position with this company!! But it allowed me the freedom to collect a paycheck while I looked for another job. The best thing I ever did with Dynasplint was give me resignation!!! They screwed me from the beginning right after I signed my employment agreement. Words of wisdom...STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!

    I just left this shit ass company and thank god. I did well but the fact that I was under compensated, underappreciated and micromanaged did it for me. So as a sales rep I'm all about the numbers. So here it is: I worked 65 hours per week for 52 weeks which equals 3380 hours per year. I made 50k that year with bonuses. So I was technically making $14.79 per hour.(People without degrees and certifications make this hourly.) Now I got a $450 car allowance and after getting an additonal amount of $200 per month for fitting patients my average car allowance was $650. Or $7800 per year. Pretty good, huh? Well I drove 3000 miles per month on average. With no gas allowance or mileage reinbursement.(according to the IRS allowance I should have received $1500 monthly or $18,000 yearly) My car payment was $550 per month ($6600 per year) for a Honda Civic plus gas. Gas was $150 per week on average or $7800 per year. So add my yearly car payment plus gas and it equals $14,400 per year. So on my travel expenses/car allowance I was minus $6,600 per year. Not to mention oil changes, insurance, tires and other maintenence. Now tally it all up, after expenses I made $43,400 per year selling medical equipment. This is totally out of line with industry standards. I just took a job doing marketing for one of my old clinics and make 65K base, $600 a month car allowance, paid mileage and bonuses. Dynasplint isn't the place to work if you want to make money. Now if you want to work for a company and have your job cost you money be my guest but you were warned.

    After experiencing the management from past employment.....NO. As far as territories they all have had loads of turnover and that always hurts business on every level no matter what you do.

    Wow. You all have it all wrong. DSI is probably the best company in the history of companies. I have worked for DSI for almost five months now and plan on besting the six month mark to become a seasoned veteran. The management is fantastic, they are always there for you and always know where you are as the fancy new phones have a GPS system. So if I forget how to get to my next appointment, I simply call my boss and she tells me exactly where I am and how to get to where I am going. The training is unparalleled and held in the beautiful city of Cincinnatti, OH. I have gone twice and it is like a vacation! Oddly enough however, most of the people I went to the first round of training were not in attendance . . . weird.? I think that my background has helped me immensly with my Dynasplint success. I started selling Rainbow vaccumms door-to-door, then I hit the big time when I scored my first of three car sales positions. I am an experienced sales person so I may be in a different league that the rest of the posters on this thread. I would not trade anything for my success with Dynasplint. I figure that if I keep up the hard work I will soon be able to buy a new pair of tires for my car and my kids can have Kraft Mac and Cheese instead of store brand.

    So dealing with the same issues that all of these posters are I decided to start looking for a new job. So here's the Dynasplint run down as far as compensation 30-40k salary, bonus, $450 car allowance, no gas or mileage, and $125 expense account for lunches and office supplies. I might make total compensation of 55k this year.(I'll have to buy a new car if I was stupid enough to stay since I have put a ton of miles on this one) And right now the territory is badly abused, used and pissed since I'm the 4th new rep in 1 1/2 years. I just started submitting my resume to other companies and recruiter and this is what I've found: "Our client would like to be at a base salary of 75K with a realistic annual commission of 75K that is paid quarterly from dollar one and uncapped plus stock options, $700 car allowance and mileage and unlimited expense account" another good one "Our client would like to be at a base salary of 100K (flexibility DOE) and the commission/bonus is paid quarterly with a 20% of base salary realistic annual commission/bonus target that is uncapped and a 4K/quarter non financial metric related quarterly bonus incentive (calling on the customer..doing your job, etc.) plus a $650/month car allowance + all expenses" I have about 1 year of sales experience and I'm being offered this? Not that I think I don't deserve it but why am I making so much less at Dynasplint? I know why...because they have no idea how to run a company...I wish I started looking sooner. I'm outta here ASAP

    I don't blame you for not ordering anymore because this company sucks. I have seen mostly good people work as sales consultant for this company, and people that have made a bad decision on taking the job. Please be courteous and understanding to the rep. 98% of them hate their jobs, and end up in a worse financial situation than when they started due to extremely low pay, horendous gas reimbursement etc. The rep does not lie to the patient about benefits. Benefits are simply "quoted" on the phone. Insurance companies and actual coverage can in fact change at the time of the fitting. So when you see a new Dynasplint rep come into your clinic every 3-4 months, help them find a new job. Keep your eye out for them, because most of them are good people that care.

    Dynasplint is sort of like a joke that only the person telling the joke laughs at and covers by saying, "I guess you had to be there." As a "Sales Consultant" for Dynasplint, my most pressing decision after six months was whether to insert the barrell of my .38 in my mouth or put it to my temple. Stear clear of this resume scarring black hole.

    Dynasplint is the biggest bait and switch company out there. They promised and showed me actual figures that I could be making in my 2nd year which none are true. I did exactly what I was told, built my territory, sold more units and still I fell short. When I asked why I didn't qualify for a salary increase they had a list of reasons. They said I didn't sell enough of the high dollar units and needed less Medicare business. Well if the company had 40% Medicare business and I have 17% I should be all set. They were just looking for a reason to not give me a salary increase like they originally promised. If you are interviewing with Dynasplint look elsewhere unless you like not being rewarded for your hard work.

    This company is very behind the times they are just now getting thier reps cell phones. The used to allow reps to submit thier cell phone bills but wanted to cut costs and have more control. They now monitor your calls, look at you calls and what time you make them and how long they are, have GPS on the phone to track you and have thier corporate leash around you. I think that was thier biggest motivation for getting us phones. They still make us do all of our paperwork by hand and have been promising laptops for the past 2 years since I've been here. I've talked with other reps and they have been promising laptops since 2000. Talk about behind the times!! Be very careful with this position they treat you nice in the beginning and then turn on you like rabid dogs. If I could give a potential canidate any advice it would be to look elsewhere.

    This company is very unprofessional and questionable. If you have ever been to a training you know what I'm talking about.

    That's funny. I would agree about training. My probation cycle was a three month cycle of not meeting my goals. My goal was 45. The first month I did 13. The second I only did 12. I was trying to grow a notoriously dead territory during this time. You know by building realtionships, inservices, follow ups, and demonstrating a good reputation for the product. Or what what you would call in the real world, "sales." The following month I did 26. Next thing you know I was let go. Without any formal probation by my manager. I actually was 6 over my quarterly goal with a great furture of growth. The best part is, without my knowledge that my "team leader" was interviewing behind my back he already hired someboby else! When I asked him about this he stated that he did not believe that my progression was at Dynasplint standards. I replied that I was ahead of my goals. He then stated that I could remain at Dynasplint as a fitter! It is funny because I now work for another medical device company and I am making more than him now for a reputable company where I have hands on sales with doctors. I never let the docs know that I worked for DS but I still poke around for their information in regards to DS and they have zero trust in the company nor the product.
