Deca Dental Group, located in Texas with 83 offices under the brands Ideal Dental, Brush32, and Cornerstone Dental, has just announced their Salute to Healthcare Workers program. The initiative provides healthcare workers and their immediate families with free dental exams, x-rays, teeth whitening for life, and 40% off traditional orthodontic care for the remainder of 2020*.
Founded in Dallas in 2008 by Dr. Sulman Ahmed, the DSO serves communities in DFW, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. All Texas healthcare workers including hospital staff, nurses, and doctors along with their immediate families are eligible to receive benefits.
“This is our small way of saying ‘Thank You.’ They have had our back and we wanted them to know how much we appreciate everything they’ve done and continue to do for us.” -Dr. Sulman Ahmed, Founder & CEO, Deca Dental Group
Having just launched the campaign, they have already had an overwhelming response, especially around the orthodontics services.
The idea for the Salute to Healthcare Workers came about the group began reopening dental offices. The DSO wanted to provide full-service dental care and they were looking for a way to give back to those medical professionals who have been courageously serving their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The past three months have been challenging for Deca Dental Group – as it has been for most of the industry. In accordance with ADA restrictions and the Texas Governor’s stay at home orders, they closed down and were operating at 20% capacity, offering essential emergency services only for the month of April. During that month, they treated 3500 patients with dental emergencies.
In May, they started opening back up in a staggered phased schedule. They saw revenues back to 60-75% pre-Covid-19. Thus far in June, they seem to be getting closer to 90%.
Due to the pandemic, they have pushed their 2020 growth plans out, but have now restarted construction. They expect most of the DSO’s growth in 2020 to be in Florida, with plans to expand to more states in 2021.
Based on a patient-centered model, Deca is just as dedicated to the community as it is to its patients. Learn more about Deca’s safe teeth first (including safety videos) and their commitment to patient and staff safety.
