Dental Fix Rx is looking to address a common pain point felt by several Las Vegas dental professionals: helping them get back to serving customers more quickly when equipment breaks down. The fast-growing mobile dental equipment repair service franchise is looking to add three franchise units in the market—serving 1,050-plus dental offices—within the next 12 months.
EVP of Business Development, Scott Mortier, will be in Las Vegas on Thursday, August 11 to meet with local prospective entrepreneurs regarding the Dental Fix Rx franchise opportunity.
“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,” said Mortier, noting that dental practices typically budget $6,000 a year for equipment repairs. “This huge unmet need is a constant within the dental community, especially in Las Vegas where we’re receiving a high influx of communications from local dental practices interested in utilizing our services.”
Dental Fix Rx is the only U.S. franchise that truly serves the $38 billion dental equipment repair sector. Already servicing more than 18,000 dental professionals, Dental Fix Rx is revolutionizing the dental service industry by delivering immediate, on-demand equipment service, hand-piece repairs and cost-effective consumable products through its network of highly-trained franchise professionals. Several factors, such as the rising costs for new equipment and technology advancements that have increased productivity in dental practices, are resulting in more dentists choosing to repair equipment over buying new and making quick, economical repairs even more important for operations.
“The time these dental offices lose from equipment malfunctioning can be a very unpleasant hit to their bottom line,” Mortier added. “We’ve developed a proven business model that allows our franchisees to deliver prompt, more affordable services so dentists can get back to servicing customers. Las Vegas dental offices are in serious need of our support.”
Due to the intensive eight-week training program Dental Fix Rx provides, no prior industry experience is required to become a franchisee. Since franchisees are typically owner-operators, Dental Fix Rx owners must be personable and have the ability to build lasting relationships. 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 franchisees to primarily focus on serving local dental practices and offering first-class customer service.
Dental Fix Rx 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 company additionally does not require franchisees to pay royalty fees.
