DPAS have announced the appointment of Dean Hallows as its commercial director from January 2014.
DPAS administers practice-branded dental plans for the benefit of practices and patients alike. Quentin Skinner, Chairman and founder of DPAS, revealed that Dean’s appointment is evidence of the company’s commitment to ensuring the future prosperity of their customers: 'As we continue to offer a range of services supporting the growth of dental practices and with a new NHS contract imminent, we firmly believe that now is the time to invest further in our future, and that of the practices with which we work, in order to meet and exceed the needs of both dentists and patients.'
Dean Hallows has over 25 years business experience within the dental market to DPAS, most recently representing Dentsply, manufacturer and distributor of dental and other consumable healthcare products. With experience gained both in the UK and extensively overseas, recent responsibilities have provided Dean with the opportunity to work closely with and support clinicians, dental practices and teaching universities, whilst directing and managing multiple teams and divisions throughout the Middle East and Africa. Dean said 'I am very much looking forward to working closely with the team and getting more involved with dental practices across the UK. DPAS has an excellent reputation and, with the dental market once again about to change, I am positive that we are very well placed to support our customers through any transition.'
