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.”
