He is a recipient of NDEDIC’s Benjamin D.

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?

“Matter of Time” by Randy Travis, for my Bride. =)

 

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.
