DentalPlans.com Names John Pereira as President

DentalPlans.com recently appointed John Pereira (pictured) to serve as the company’s new president. Pereira will lead the company’s business strategy and operations and enhance its plan for accelerated growth for dental savings plans. 

“John brings more than 20 years of technology, innovation, and leadership experience to the company,” Mike Baird says, Chief Executive Officer, Henry Schein One, which owns DentalPlans.com. “His customer-centric focus and proven success in delivering operational excellence makes him the perfect fit to help the company continue to improve consumer access to quality, affordable dental care.”

 Founded in 1999, DentalPlans.com has helped over a million people access quality healthcare services. It works as an alternative to traditional dental insurance by providing plan members with 10 to 60% off on most dental procedures from a nationwide network of dentists.

“At DentalPlans.com, we’re committed to empowering people with the tools and information they need to access quality dental care,” Jenn Stoll says, Chief Commercial Officer at DentalPlans.com. “I’m so excited to have John join the DentalPlans.com team, and look forward to working collaboratively with him to continue to drive that mission forward.”

Before joining DentalPlans.com, Pereira served as Chief Operating Officer for Lightstream Communications, a leading cloud and networking technology solutions provider. He also served as Vice President of AncestryDNA, where he led all product, marketing and operational activities. He has a Bachelor of Science from the United States Naval Academy, served as a Naval Officer and earned a Master of Business Administration from Carnegie Mellon University.

“I am so pleased to join a team that is driven by helping people lead healthier lives,” Pereira says. “With emerging technology and the web, we can break down traditional barriers and get dental savings plans in front of the people who truly need them and who may not be able to afford their oral health care otherwise.”

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
