Local Entrepreneur Addresses Common Pain Point Felt by Evansville Dental Professionals
Local Resident Launches Local Dental Fix Rx Franchise; Provides On-Site Repair Services for Dental Practices in Southwestern Indiana and Northwest Kentucky.
November 23, 2015 // Franchising.com // EVANSVILLE, Ind. – Dental Fix Rx - a fast-growing mobile dental equipment repair service franchise - is helping local dental professionals get back to serving customers more quickly when equipment breaks down.
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. Chris Guthrie - who locally owns and operates Dental Fix Rx of Evansville, Ind. - has been solving this problem felt by many local dental professionals throughout Southwestern Indiana and Northwestern Kentucky.
“As a business owner, I understand that time is money and precision matters,” said Guthrie. “Prior to launching Dental Fix Rx, local dental practices had to send away broken parts, wait days to weeks for repairs or spend even more money on replacing equipment that could have been fixed. None of these scenarios are efficient or economical.”
With 35 years of experience in electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and construction, Guthrie sought a new opportunity that would allow him to apply his expertise in support of a much-needed service in the local community. He discovered Dental Fix Rx and felt that the company’s focus on personalized service would be a good fit for the next chapter in his professional career. He was awarded the first Dental Fix Rx franchise in Indiana, and has a service territory spanning up to 350 dental offices throughout the Southwest region of the state and Henderson, Owensboro Kentucky. Prior to becoming a Dental Fix Rx franchisee, he underwent an intensive eight-week training program with the Dental Fix Rx corporate team along with Factory Training on specialized equipment and service.
With the technical skills necessary and a fully-equipped Mobile Service Center van, Guthrie delivers prompt repairs of chairs, delivery units, sterilizers, handpieces, ultrasonic scalers, vacuum pumps and more, along with sales of new parts and equipment – all at a competitive price. Prepared with the latest technology, factory training and diagnostic equipment, he provides immediate services and repairs for any dental service scenario.
“It’s no surprise that repairs, which are completed on-site, make up more than half of my business. My clients appreciate that Dental Fix Rx is faster and more affordable than other repair options,” added Guthrie, noting that he can respond to customers within 24 hours since he is local to his service area. “As both the owner and operator of my Dental Fix Rx business, I’m able to develop a personal relationship with the practices in my community.”
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 Guthrie to primarily focus on serving local dental practices and offering first-class customer service. Dental Fix Rx clients also benefit from always working with the same experienced industry professional, as well as no travel charges, free estimates and assessments, emergency loaner service for compressor or vacuum pumps and personalized telephone support and account management.
