Ultradent Announces New Leadership


I have worked with Ultradent a lot over the years.  It's an amazing company that employs amazing people.  The man who founded Ultradent, Dr. Dan Fischer, is not only someone that I consider a friend, but is truly one of the"nice guys" in dentistry.  He built a company in his own image and they make amazing products.

Because of my work with them and also because of multiple site visits over my career, I've gotten to know a lot of the people that work in their headquarters.  This is an announcement on some changes at the company.  The good news is that I know both of these individuals and I know they will continue to drive Ultradent to greater heights.

The sad part of this post is that Karen Phillips is retiring.  Karen has been a part of Ultradent for as long as I've been dealing with the company.  She's a smart lady and I've enjoyed working with her over the years.  Karen I wish you the best!

Here is the press release from Ultradent:
