April 06, 2016 // Franchising.com // ARLINGTON, Texas – Dental Fix Rx - the fastest-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. Humberto Gomez - who locally owns and operates Dental Fix Rx of Arlington - plans to relieve this pain point felt by many dental professionals throughout Arlington, Irving, Hurst and Cedar Hill, Texas.
Before opening Dental Fix Rx in February of this year, Gomez gained a wide range of experience in the public service and private world. Gomez served his country as a reservist in the United States Marine Corps and transitioned to working as a police officer for the City of Arlington. Desiring a change in lifestyle, he then made the jump to insurance and owned and operated a Farmers Insurance branch for the past 10 years. While launching his second business endeavor, Gomez’s wife remains involved in the daily operations of their Farmers Insurance branch.
“I learned a lot operating my first business and felt that Dental Fix Rx was too great of an opportunity to pass up, especially when I realized this concept was completely unique to the market,” said Gomez, noting that he nearly broke $10,000 in his first full month in business. “It’s not only the dentists seeing the benefit of what I do, it’s the community that relies on these professionals for their health. Having owned another business, I understand that time wasted waiting for repairs on basic equipment is money lost. Now, instead of waiting days or weeks, my repair van can be at the dentist’s office within 24 hours and the equipment can be back to working for a competitive price.”
Prior to becoming a Dental Fix Rx franchisee, he underwent an intensive eight-week training program with the Dental Fix Rx corporate team. With the technical skills necessary and a fully-equipped Mobile Service Center van, Gomez delivers prompt repairs of chairs, sterilizers, handpieces, vacuum pumps and more, along with sales of new parts and devices – all at a competitive price. Prepared with the latest technology and diagnostic equipment, he is able to provide immediate services and repairs for any dental service scenario.
“My success is based on building relationships with the dental community and letting them know that I care about their ability to provide care when it is needed,” added Gomez, noting that he can respond to customers within 24 hours since he is local to his service area. “Many of the dentists I speak with are delighted to know that this option now exists for them when equipment breaks down. My Dental Fix Rx is here to help and do so in a professional and quick manner.”
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 Gomez 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 professionals, as well as no travel charges, free estimates and assessments, free emergency loaner service for compressor or vacuum pumps and personalized telephone support and account management.
Other services include equipment sales, delivery and upholstery. For more information on Dental Fix Rx of Arlington, visit www.dentalfixrx.com or call 1-800-586-0340.
