Dental Fix Rx Franchisee Featured in Entrepreneur Magazine

Arlington, Texas Franchisee of National Mobile Dental Equipment Repair Franchise Shares His Career Transition Story in the November 2016 Issue of Entrepreneur

Dental Fix Rx Franchisee Featured in Entrepreneur Magazine

DAVIE, Fla. – Dental Fix Rx franchisee Humberto Gomez is featured in the November 2016 issue of Entrepreneur magazine (pages 79 and 80). Titled “The Lure of the Road: Why Humberto Gomez Traded in a Successful Desk Job for a More Mobile Gig,” the article details Gomez’s initial entrepreneurial success, operating an insurance agency, and his decision to sell the business to launch his own Dental Fix Rx business.

When asked why he traded in his white-collar job to operate a blue-collar business, Gomez said, “A lot of people did think I was crazy. They said, ‘You’re the CEO of an agency, and you’re taking off the suit to get dirty and greasy?’ I grew up working in the fields, and I’m used to hard work. I was getting tired of sitting in a chair all day. I’m very active and have to do things with my hands. It makes me feel good about myself. This was a perfect fit.”

Like Gomez, all franchisees attend an intensive nine-week training program at the Dental Fix Rx corporate office to learn all the ins-and-outs of business operations as well as diagnosing equipment problems and how to repair them. Therefore, no prior industry experience is necessary to become a Dental Fix Rx franchisee. The corporate team also provides centralized technological and account management software services.

Anyone interested in operating their own Dental Fix Rx franchise can enjoy a special financing deal, if they sign a franchise agreement before the end of the year.

Military Veteran Uses Hands-on Skills to Be the Faster Fix for Dental Practicioners

Name: Kelvin Hall

Launched Their Dental Fix Rx Franchise (Month/Year): December 2013

Service Area: Charleston, SC

Kelvin Hall served in the military for over 30 years. During this time, he traveled frequently and lived abroad in Dubai, Germany and Afghanistan. He worked as an Air Craft Mechanic for nine years, before receiving his undergraduate degree in Professional Aeronautics. After the military, Hall worked as a Program Manager for Boeing engineering for 15 years.

Seeking entrepreneurship, Hall began researching franchises. There were many franchise options—especially a lot of food concepts—but Dental Fix Rx kept appearing at the top of the list. What attracted him to the business was the hands-on approach and ability to run the business by himself, involved in every level of operations. Fixing equipment came easy to him due to his extensive career experience, and his military background contributed to his strong life structure and self-discipline. Boeing contributed to his business knowledge, showing him how various areas of a business can impact a bottom line. The combination of both laid the foundation to pinpoint what he was trying to accomplish and how he was planning to achieve those goals. For instance, he currently is at 100+ customers and nearly 80 of them are repeat customers. Of course, his goals is to increase that number, but 30 percent of all his customers utilize Dental Fix Rx services for everything they repair at their practices.

Q: What were the most unexpected challenges of opening your franchise?

The real challenge was learning how to sell the services. I never really had to “sell” things in my career, so that was difficult. However, once I quickly learned the dental industry products and got more engrained in my business, I had no problem thoroughly explaining the benefits of using Dental Fix Rx over other companies.

Q: What has been your proudest moment as an entrepreneur?

When I saw my first big sale come through. In 2016, at the Dental Fix Rx 3rd annual conference I received the Largest Invoice of the Year award.

Q: You’re the only employee – how do you stay motivated? Is there anything you do to de-stress if you’re feeling overwhelmed?

Success is my biggest motivator. I’ve always been a self-motivated and self-starter. I don’t need a supervisor watching over me. I know what I have to do to be successful. I also used my own funds to launch the business, I didn’t take out any loans, so seeing my investment through is another goal driver that allows me to effectively tackle my work load.

Q: What is one of your routines that you don’t want to mess with?

I have to hit the gym before I start my day. It clears my head and gives me the jump start I need to take on the day. I’m up by 4:30 a.m. to walk into the gym by 5 a.m., and am on the road to my first appointment by 8 a.m. Depending on the day, my last appointment can be anywhere from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. or after hours.

Dental Fix Rx Sees Outstanding Start with Mail-in Repair Program

National Dental Equipment Repair Franchise’s Rapid Repair Program Experiences 30 Percent Growth in Revenue, Repeat Business from Dental Practices Outside its Service Areas

DAVIE, Fla. – Since launching this past June, Dental Fix Rx’s Rapid Repair program has become the preferred repair solution for hundreds of dental practices across the nation. With new and already repeat customers, Rapid Repair increased revenue substantial again last month. A majority of the repairs were handpieces, including high speed, slow speed and electrical attachments.

“While we have more than 250 franchises operating or in development nationwide, there are still thousands of dental practices outside of our reach that can benefit from our services. That’s why we launched Rapid Repair. It’s a faster, more affordable repair solution for dental practices outside of our territories,” said Paul Sost, Director of Rapid Repair Dental Fix Rx, “The program is growing significantly month over month, and we expect it to more than double by year end.”

The Rapid Repair process is simple – first, dental practices should sterilize all items to be repaired. Then, visit the Dental Fix repair site to complete the online repair form and receive a free, 2-day shipping label; the form should then be placed in a box and the shipping label attached to the outside of the package. Within 24 hours of receiving the equipment, Dental Fix Rx sends an email with a price estimate and to confirm the repairs. Dental professionals can expect to have the equipment back in their office within one week of shipping the item. Additionally, all repaired equipment comes with a warranty for three months to one year, depending on the product.

Through the program, Dental Fix Rx provides repair services to all major brands using the highest quality components. Services include high and low speed handpieces, electric motors & attachments, electric control units, electric lab handpieces & control units, surgical motors & attachments, surgical control units, sonic scalers and ultrasonic scalers (all models & types).

Rapid Repair offers free estimates and if the dentist ultimately chooses to not repair the item, Dental Fix Rx sends the equipment back free of charge.

Dental Fix Rx Now Offering Unlimited Services at a Flat Monthly Fee

National Mobile Dental Equipment Repair Service Franchise Launches the Dental Fix Rx Unlimited Service Plan, Offering Regular Preventative Maintenance at a Standard Monthly Rate

DAVIE, Fla. – Dental practices throughout the United States are gaining more certainty when it comes to the health of their dental equipment thanks to Dental Fix Rx. The national mobile dental equipment repair service franchise has rolled out a new program that provides dental practices regular preventative maintenance and repair services at a flat monthly charge.

Through the Unlimited Service Plan, or “USP”, dental practices are visited at least once a month by their local Dental Fix Rx operator whose goal is to prevent equipment from breaking.

“The Unlimited Service Plan allows our franchisees and their clients to move from a reactive to a proactive state of doing business,” says Dental Fix Rx Director of Operations Tom Meiron. “In today’s difficult business environment, operating costs are hard to predict and control. And, just like all other businesses, dental practices would rather have a consistent charge each month, rather than dealing with the uncertainty of a potential big ticket line item. This program allows us to help prevent those big surprises by maintaining their equipment so it works more efficiently, and lasts longer.”

Dental Fix Rx first piloted the program with ten franchisees who found it to be enthusiastically embraced by their clients. One of the test franchisees, Michael Ryan of the Dental Fix Rx in Ft. Worth, TX said, “Dental practices are now trading an inconsistent problem for a consistent solution. And, while we traditionally maintain good-standing relationships with our clients, this program allows us to truly become a partner in their business. Our goal is to prevent equipment from breaking, eliminating downtime and saving them money long-term. It’s a lot different than only hearing from a practice when a piece of equipment breaks.”

The Unlimited Service Plan covers preventative maintenance for all pieces of dental equipment, including hand pieces. The flat monthly fee varies depending on the size of the dental practice. Outside of the regular monthly rate, participating practices only pay for parts needed to complete a repair. All labor costs are included in the monthly fee, regardless of how many visits an operator makes to a dental practice within the month.
