The values of partnership, integrity and innovation have been ingrained in this Company for over 134 years. Those values extend far beyond the walls of our Corporate Office in St. Paul and mean more than providing dental products to dentists. The partnerships we create with our customers and business partners help bring innovations that continuously improve the practice and shape the future of dentistry.
Now, I am definitely not David Letterman. I actually have to give him props for his Top 10 lists. In trying to create one for Patterson Dental, I discovered just how difficult it was to keep my list to just 10. So, here is my attempt . . .
The Patterson Dental Top 10 by Dave
6. Local Branches
Even though Patterson Dental is headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota, we have 85 local branches located across the United States and Canada. Our strong belief in a decentralized organization puts our branch managers close to the customer where decisions can be made locally. We empower every one of our local branches to take care of our customers at the highest level as quickly as possible. Our local branches are part of the communities they are located in, so they understand the cultures and unique issues facing each and every one of our customers. By providing support and resources at the local level, each branch can more easily partner with each dental office to help them improve the lifestyle of their dental practice.
