Benco Dental is one of the 2017 Best Workplaces in Health Care, according to the global research and consulting firm Great Place to Work® and Fortune Magazine.
The nation’s largest privately owned dental distributor ranked 29 on the list, which is based on surveys from nearly 88,000 employees across the industry. The results show that team members enjoy a supportive work environment with effective communication and trust in leadership.

“Benco Dental is truly honored to be selected by Fortune as a Best Workplace in Health
Care for the second straight year,” said George Rable, Vice President, Culture and People for Benco Dental. “Speaking on behalf of the Cohen family and senior managers, we believe we have the best associates in the dental industry and couldn’t be more proud to be playing on their team.”
