1-800-DENTIST® Celebrates 25 Years with Record Growth

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 19, 2010) – 1-800-DENTIST®, the nation’s leading dental marketing company for consumers and dentists, reported this month that membership has reached an all-time high. The company, which will celebrate its 25-year anniversary in 2011, has increased its member base by more than 25% in the last six months alone.

1-800-DENTIST® was founded in 1986 to provide dental practices with new patient leads, and has pioneered many consumer marketing innovations that are now standard across numerous industries. In June, they launched a new Pay-Per-Lead program as a cost-effective option for dentists looking to build their patient base, while staying in control of their monthly budget.

 “Our Pay-Per-Lead program is making it easier than ever for dentists to increase their production,” said Gregg Coccari, CEO of 1-800-DENTIST®. “We’re providing patient leads for more dentists now than any time in the company’s history.”

“When we started 1-800-DENTIST®, we had no idea that someday we’d be the largest lead source in the country,” said Fred Joyal, founder of 1-800-DENTIST®. “Our focus has always been on helping our members find more new patients — and that’s what we’re still doing 25 years later.”

In addition to providing patient leads, 1-800-DENTIST® also recently acquired Dental Senders™, a Web-based company that offers automated patient communications. The program is designed to increase dentists’ production and case acceptance, and is now offered as a free benefit to all 1-800-DENTIST® members.
