January 14, 2015 – Four dental sales professionals from four dental supply companies are the winners of the year-end prizes of the 2014 DentaCheques Sales Contest. Sales professionals from various supply companies throughout the industry earned entries to win one of four cash prizes based on the number of DentaCheques books sold from January 1 – December 31, 2014.
Sales representatives of Benco Dental, Dental Health Products, Inc., Henry Schein Dental, companies of NDC Dental and Patterson Dental sell DentaCheques without compensation.
