Every quarter, Dental Whale "lifts others up" through Work Wishes!

To show team members how much they’re valued and appreciated, Dental Whale started a tradition of helping some lucky team members meet their own special goals each quarter by granting Work Wishes. That's because we don’t only care about Dental Whale's goals and targets, we care about those who strive to reach and exceed them every day!

Who can participate?

  •  If you've been a team member of Dental Whale for at least one year, you are eligible to participate.
  •  If you haven’t been here that long yet, hang in there, your first anniversary will be here soon!

 How does this program work?

  • Submission periods open up each quarter (dates shown below).
  • You may submit one wish for either yourself or a team member of your choice.
  • You may only win once per year.

How does the selection process work?

  • The Work Wishes Committee will read every wish to make selections.
  • You may be selected by your needs or creativity.
  • Your wish will remain private (but your picture will be placed on www.workwishes.org)!

"We want to hire and develop the type of team members who lift others up around them every day."   - David Lopez 


You must be employed by Dental Whale for a minimum of one year and are invited to apply once per quarter. Nominating another team member who may need some type of assistance is encouraged but not required - and winners are chosen from all eligible entries received by the cut off date at the Work Wish Committee's sole discretion (based on factors including, but not limited to, originality, necessity and thoughtfulness). The Committee is made up of our DW Vision Leader (David Lopez), DW Leader (Joe Cavaretta), DWPG Leader (Dr. Steven Wingfield) with support provided by People Experience (Samantha Downie).
