I work for a healthcare hero…
Ultradent was selected as a Health Care Hero by Utah Business Magazine in the category of corporate achievement Nominees were selected for excellence, innovation and achievement for health care in Utah. I know this award holds special significance for Dr. Fischer considering the level of importance he’s placed on Ultradent and The Diversity Foundation’s efforts to give back to the community. Locally, we’ve partnered with the Sealants for Smiles program to provide oral health education, dental screening and the placement of dental sealants for 2nd and 6th grade students in Title 1 schools. We’re also an underwriter of the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation. These small but growing non-profit organizations have made great strides towards improving oral health care for the underserved. I think we need to be reminded of how much one program can make a difference.
Internally, our HR department has made a tremendous impact by design and implementation of a health program that includes 18 “get healthy” events including a 5k marathon, health fair, and a variety of health and fitness seminars.
It is rare that you see an organization that actually “walks the talk”. These achievements stand on their own in representing the type of organization one could call a “hero”.
