Risas Dental and Braces, a local dental care provider with a mission to change the way dentistry is offered, is proud to announce that the Better Business Bureau Serving the Pacific Southwest (BBB) have named them as a finalist for the 2022 BBB Torch Awards for Ethics. The annual award program recognizes local businesses that generate a high level of trust among their employees, customers, and their communities.
“Our mission to go the extra mile for every smile is driven by ethics and trust. Our team is comprised of individuals who believe in putting patients before profit and extending compassion to everyone who walks through our doors,” said Jeff Adams, CEO of Risas Dental and Braces. “To be recognized as a finalist for the BBB’s highest honor is an incredible for us because it recognizes the dedication we have serving our patients and reaffirms the practices we have in place make a positive impact.”
Risas Dental was selected by an independent panel comprised of business and community leaders based on the character of the company’s leadership, how an authentic culture is being fostered, how the company prioritizes its relationship with customers, and the impact the company is making in their community.
Risas Dental is motivated by the company statement, “We Speak Patient”, to deliver quality and affordable dental care. Risas Dental invests in the personal wellbeing and professional development of over 800 team members by offering a variety of benefits including covering the payment on exams and study guides for dental assistants. Since its inception, Risas Dental has provided $8.2 million in free dental care to the community through signature campaigns including Labor of Love and Mother’s Day Dental Makeover or partnerships with schools and health fairs.
“Honesty builds trust, which is a vital aspect in the success of a business. For 20 years, BBB has been recognizing outstanding companies in Greater Arizona for their solid commitment to doing things the right way,” said Shelley Bradley, Director of Signature Events for BBB Serving the Pacific Southwest.
Winners will be announced at the in-person signature event on November 17, 2022 at the Arizona Biltmore Hotel. For a complete list of this year’s BBB Torch Awards for Ethics Finalists visit torchawards.bbbcommunity.org.
