Our Interviewee: Tom Mort
Job Title: Director of Product Integration
Time with DentalXChange: 10 years
Fun Fact: Tom drove a big rig truck in the summer of 1990, hauling tomatoes from the fields to the cannery.
Tom has been a part of DentalXChange family for 10 years. During that time, he watched the first claim go through ClaimConnect, to the over 100 million claims that have been submitted, since! He is a recipient of NDEDIC’s Benjamin D. Ward Award for contributions to the Dental EDI industry and has work in almost every department at DentalXChange, including creating our Production Support Department. We thought it was about time we sat down and had a one on one with Tom, on the eve of his 10-year anniversary.
What year did you start with DentalXChange?
What are your daily responsibilities?
I help design product solutions, review Engineering’s development efforts and help parties integrate our applications into their processes.
What would you say is your favorite aspect of your job?
Interacting with all departments to help solve problems. I love finding solutions. I enjoy getting CFLs* from co-workers.
*CFL is our employee recognition program designed to let co-workers show their appreciation to other colleagues for work above and beyond their regular duties. Tom frequently receives these.
What’s your favorite part of working at DentalXChange?
The quick and nimble way we can get solutions to the market. We have a small enough company that I get to enjoy working with everyone at some point.
What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?
Spending time with my 4 kids, 4 dogs and 1 wonderful wife. I enjoy playing sports and cards. Watching movies and my children’s concerts and plays. I love to sing but have no talent.
You must have some talent! Maybe DentalXChange should hold a karaoke contest? What song would you sing if we did?

We’d like to thank Tom for taking time out of his busy schedule to talk with us. DentalXChange is very proud of the services and support we offer our clients and Tom is a big reasons for that.
