Dental Sales Professionals Awarded

Year-End Prizes for 2016 DentaCheques Sales


January 31, 2017 — Four dental sales professionals from three dental supply companies are winners in the 2016 DentaCheques Sales Contest drawing. Revenues from sales of DentaCheques coupon books, offered by Dental Lifeline Network, a national dental charity, support free, comprehensive dental care to society’s most vulnerable people who have no other access to treatment.

Sales professionals from various supply companies throughout the industry earned one entry to the drawing per book sold for one of four cash prizes based on the number of DentaCheques books sold from January 1 to December 31, 2016.  Representatives of Benco Dental, Dental Health Products, Inc., Henry Schein Dental, companies of NDC Dental, and Patterson Dental sell DentaCheques without compensation.

In 2016, sales of DentaCheques raised $1.5 million to financially support the delivery of dental care to thousands of vulnerable people through Dental Lifeline Network and its Donated Dental Services (DDS) program.  Over 15,000 dentists and 3,700 laboratories nationwide volunteer for DDS and donate care to people with disabilities or who are elderly or medically fragile.

DentaCheques is available in two versions; the printed book or a digital version, called e-DentaCheques. The new e-Book allows purchasers to view and redeem all coupons online, or through the e-DentaCheques app.
