Dental Fix Rx Ranks No. 149 on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 200 Global Franchises List

National Dental Equipment Repair Franchise Recognized for Outstanding Growth; Company Shares Mid-Year Growth Marks and International Expansion Plans

DAVIE, Fla. – Dental Fix Rx, the only mobile franchise specializing in dental equipment repair services, ranked No. 149 on Entrepreneur magazine’s list of the top 200 Global Franchises worldwide. Last year, the fast-growing franchise ranked No. 189 on the list.

Featured in the publication’s July 2016 issue, the Top 200 Global list is based off its annual Franchise 500® rankings, which ranked Dental Fix Rx at No. 268. The Franchise 500 is noted as the world’s first, best and most comprehensive ranking of the top franchise opportunities in the United States. It recognized Dental Fix Rx for its exceptional performance in areas such as financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the franchise system.

“Due to little competition and the constant need for dental equipment repair services, we are experiencing robust franchise growth domestically and across Canada,” said Scott Mortier, EVP of Business Development at Dental Fix Rx. “We recently sold our 250thfranchise, and expect to have all U.S. territories sold within the next three years.”

Dental Fix Rx is the only mobile franchise specialized in dental equipment repair services. In the past six months, the company has signed 20 franchise agreements, bringing its total unit count up to nearly 250 franchises that operate in 37 U.S. states & three Canadian provinces and service more than 18,000 customers. On average, Dental Fix Rx has sold and opened a new unit every week for the past 37 months, and adds around 1,000 new customers every quarter. The company expects to sign more than 50 new franchise agreements in 2016.

“With the huge demand we’re seeing from prospective franchisees, expansion outside North America is a natural next focus for us. Dental equipment repair is a service offering that is easily relatable in any market – not just in the United States, but every country. Unlike many concepts, we don’t need to rework our services, target customer, etc. due to cultural barriers,” Mortier added. “We’re seeking master franchisees who understand our vision and have a solid track record of business experience. As we enter new countries, it will also be critical that they have local connections within their business community who can help them develop Dental Fix in their local market.”

Colorado Franchisee of Dental Fix Reviews Franchisor Support; Shares How He Achieved Year One Goals

DAVIE, Fla. – Tim Rouzee wasn’t on the hunt for franchises; rather, it was his wife who was researching various franchise opportunities for herself and instead found the perfect fit for her husband. When she came across Dental Fix Rx, she knew it would be the right next step in Tim’s professional career. He opened his Dental Fix franchise over a year ago and far exceeded his year one goals, serving more than 110 customers.
He sat down recently to share what his first year was like as a Dental Fix Rx franchisee. During this Dental Fix Franchise Reviews video, Tim describes the following:
• Franchisor training and support,
• Centralized technological and account management services provided by Dental Fix Rx,
• Customer feedback, and
• Initial success with the franchise.
Tim was able to achieve this success in his first year of business due to the high level of support provided by the Dental Fix Rx corporate team, which includes an intensive eight-week training program as well as centralized technological and account management services. By handling the majority of the back-end office support, franchise owners like Tim are able to solely focus on servicing customers. The company is also one of the only franchises to offer a franchise guarantee – refunding the franchise fee if new owners do not service 40 clients within his or her first year of business.
“The biggest revelation for me is how many dentists are out there and unhappy with the service center they’re currently using,” Tim said. “They’re happy to have someone that’s an individual owner and can make decisions on the spot.”

Dental Fix Rx Expands Presence in Georgia and South Carolina

Area Resident Launches Local Dental Fix Rx Franchise; Provides On-Site Repair Services for Dental Practices in the Augusta Metropolitan Area

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (June 1, 2016) Dental Fix Rx—the fastest-growing, mobile dental equipment repair service franchise—is helping local dental professionals get back to serving customers more quickly when equipment breaks down.

Traditionally, when equipment malfunctions, a dental practices’ main option is to contact their area dealer whose large sales area prevents them from being able to respond quickly or deliver personalized service. Mark Hedman —who locally owns and operates Dental Fix Rx of Augusta-Aiken—plans to relieve this pain point felt by many dental professionals throughout Georgia and South Carolina.

This the first business owned by Hedman who sought out a new opportunity after working with the Department of Defense in IT communications. Looking to do something different and become his own boss, Hedman learned about the Dental Fix Rx opportunity and new it would be a perfect fit for the next step in his career.   

“Dental Fix Rx really caters to a niche market and the dental community absolutely needs a concept like this,” said Hedman, who recently started his local Dental Fix Rx franchise. “Before Dental Fix Rx rolled into these communities, there wasn’t an option for equipment repair. Now, they can rely on my Dental Fix Rx business to respond to their service needs within one business day and fix broken equipment for far less than it would cost to replace.”

Prior to becoming a Dental Fix Rx franchisee, Hedman underwent an intensive eight-week training program with the Dental Fix Rx corporate team. With the technical skills necessary and a fully-equipped Mobile Service Center van, he delivers prompt repairs of chairs, sterilizers, handpieces, vacuum pumps and more, along with sales of new parts and devices – all at a competitive price. Prepared with the latest technology and diagnostic equipment, he is able to provide immediate services and repairs for any dental service scenario.

“Finding solutions to problems my customers face and being the owner-operator of my Dental Fix Rx has been a great experience,” added Hedman, noting his territory services up to 350 dentists. “Since repairs are completed on-site, I’m able to provide more affordable services than other repair options. This also allows me to develop a personal relationship with practices in my community.”

The Dental Fix Rx corporate team provides centralized technological and account management services to handle the majority of the back-end office support. This allows Hedman to primarily focus on serving local dental practices and offering first-class customer service. Dental Fix Rx clients also benefit from always working with the same experienced industry professionals, as well as no travel charges, free estimates and assessments, free emergency loaner service for compressor or vacuum pumps and personalized telephone support and account management.
