"We needed another office...We always have a live person rather than an automated system answering the phone during business hours."
Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) January 19, 2010
Today 1Dental.com opens new branch in Norman, Okla., to help more people nationwide find affordable dental coverage.
1Dental.com CEO Randall Meinen has announced University of Oklahoma student John Mark Anderson as Branch Manager for the new location. Anderson, after exhibiting high efficiency and responsibility as an intern at 1Dental.com headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas, approached Meinen in 2009 about starting a 1Dental.com branch in Norman as a full-time manager with several competent employees. Anderson plans to return to OU in a year and will continue to seek out additional student employees as business increases. Meinen and Anderson project the number of Norman 1Dental.com employees to increase by two to threefold by the end of 2010.
1Dental.com experienced high-level growth in 2009. "We needed another office due an exceptional increase in sales call volume," says Anderson. "We always have a live person rather than an automated system answering the phone during business hours, and that's just part of our customer care."
"Anderson's challenge is to make a profit," Meinen says. "He will be working on an incentive basis with compensation tied to his success. John Mark has proven to us that he has the skill set to make it work."
1Dental.com connects thousands of dental patients every month to affordable dental plans starting at $6.95/month with immediate savings of up to 70%. With over 7 million members and 60,000 in-network dentists, including a strong network in the Norman/OKC area, the 1Dental.com plan is a win-win for both dentists seeking new patients and patients seeking affordable coverage in today's economy.
