eAssist Honored as Best Workplace in Health Care & Biopharma by Fortune
SALT LAKE CITY UTAH, March 12, 2021 — eAssist Dental Solutions, the nation’s leading provider of virtual insurance and patient billing services for dental offices, has been confirmed by Great Place to Work® and Fortune as one of America’s Best Workplaces in Health Care & Biopharma™ 2021. “We were thrilled last October by becoming Great Place to Work-Certified™ when 93% of our workforce of more than 1,000 dental billing professionals praised eAssist as a great workplace, compared to 59% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company,” said CEO and Founder Dr. James V. Anderson. “We are especially proud to be named as the 10th best workplace in health care and biopharma during a year when a global pandemic put our organizations, our people and patients at extraordinary risk.” The ranking considered more than 825,000 employee surveys from companies across the health care and biopharma industry, and Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. eAssist unburdens the office staff from the time-consuming and often frustrating job of dealing with dental insurance companies so they can better focus on serving patients and growing the practice. eAssisters have played an exceptionally vital role during COVID. After being shut down for months, dental practices had to re-earn the trust of their own employees and patients as a safe place to be. In-office teams needed to learn and implement new safety equipment and protocols, and communications processes, all while trying to recover and stabilize financially. “We truly care for our people; we hire the very best, then we listen to them, invest in them, help them grow, and reward them well. In return, they work tirelessly to collect all that is rightfully owed to our clients by insurance companies. Never was that more apparent than this past year when our people showed extraordinary commitment by going above and beyond to maximize practice income while offices were closed, and even helping doctors apply for economic stimulus. Some of our clients may not have been able to maintain viable practices, continue to employ their teams or serve patients had it not been for the dedication of their eAssist partners,” explained Dr. Anderson. Servant leadership is the #1 core value at eAssist. The entire management team knows that helping people be the best they can be – professionally and personally – is what will make the company its best. “When our people have a high-trust experience every day they are more productive, drive better business results and make an even bigger difference to our clients. I am so proud of what they have accomplished this year, and congratulate the entire team on all they’ve done for the health care industry,” concluded Dr. Anderson. “Congratulations to the Best Workplaces in Health Care and Biopharma™. All of us owe a debt to the nurses, doctors, scientists and other colleagues in this industry over the past year, and we are honored to recognize the organizations that have done right by these pandemic heroes,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO Great Place to Work®. “The leaders of these high-trust, inclusive companies can expect excellent business results thanks to their ‘For All’ cultures.”
About Fortune Best Workplaces in Health Care & Biopharma™ and Great Place to Work®Great Place to Work® based its ranking on a data-driven methodology applied to the confidential Trust Index™ survey representing over 825,000 employees working in the Health Care & Biopharma industries in the US. Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full potential as part of their organization. The remaining 15% is based on an assessment of employees’ daily experiences of innovation, company values, and effectiveness of leaders to ensure they’re consistently experienced. Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture. Since 1992, they have surveyed more than 100 million employees around the world and used those deep insights to define what makes a great workplace: trust. Great Place to Work helps organizations quantify their culture and produce better business results by creating a high-trust work experience for all employees. greatplacetowork.com

eAssist Dental Health Education Foundation Goes Over and Above to Drive Systemic Health
Helping patients help themselves stay their healthiest SALT LAKE CITY— Oct. 26, 2020 — eAssist Dental Solutions, the nation’s leading provider of virtual insurance and patient billing services for dental offices, proudly launches its new Dental Health Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization on a mission to spread awareness of the importance of dental cleanings. This year COVID-19 has helped bring to the attention of the public the devastating impact of inflammation on the body. Specifically, that increased systemic inflammation – which can be caused by oral inflammation due to lack of dental cleanings – makes it easier to contract COVID-19 and harder to fight off. Moreover, inflammation is a precursor for diseases like diabetes and arthritis, heart and lung disease, dementia and Alzheimer’s, pancreatic cancer, stroke and others. “Over and above serving our clients, all of us at eAssist want to leave a positive, lasting impact on the world,” said Dr. James V. Anderson, Foundation Director and CEO/Founder of eAssist Dental Solutions. “Our way of giving back is through the eAssist Dental Health Education Foundation.” He went on to explain, “We talked about setting up a foundation a few years ago, but weren’t sure what the focus should be. During the industry shutdown, I had an “aha” moment when I was reminded that PATIENTS are at the very top of our organization chart. As servant leaders, we ultimately serve the patients of eAssist clients by collecting as much as possible from insurance companies so the patient doesn’t have to pay, and so the doctors receive all that is rightfully owed to them. Now – through the Foundation – we’re also going to educate patients on the critical importance of having their teeth cleaned on a regular basis to eliminate oral inflammation and prevent myriad health issues exacerbated and even caused by gum disease.” The Foundation’s educational initiatives include the following, with more in development:
- Provide educational videos for dental offices to use, royalty-free, to educate patients on how oral health correlates with their body’s overall health and wellness
- Share scientifically researched articles via the website
- Connect the dental community through peer testimonials, insights and recommendations

Today Inc. Magazine announced that eAssist Dental Solutions placed as the 1677th fastest-growing private company in America on its 2020 list of the top 5000. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment -- its independent small businesses. eAssist is honored to rank alongside such great companies as Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Clif Bar, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle, and other notable alumni. With a growth rate of 256.59% over the last three years, this is a result most businesses only dream of during a stretch when the economy grew by just 15%. Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500%, and a median rate of 165%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years. Inclusion on this list is impressive even once, but five years in a row is an exceptional achievement. And, further solidifies eAssist’s position and reputation as the nation’s leading provider of virtual insurance billing services for dental offices. eAssist was created in 2012 to solve a problem – to significantly improve dental practice profitability by maximizing insurance collections in a more effective and less stressful way. In short, to bring doctors peace of mind by collecting all that is rightfully owed to them by insurance companies, allowing them to focus more on their patients, and on growing their businesses. “Since our inception, we’ve been listening to our clients and our people to stay abreast of systemic and emerging issues, and identifying innovative solutions that help practices become more efficient, profitable, and patient-focused. Our growth over the past five years in particular confirms that what we’re doing is working for our clients, and positively impacting the dental industry as a whole,” said CEO and Founder, Dr. James V. Anderson, DMD. Dr. Anderson describes eAssist as a highly tech-enabled company, explaining, “Our constant investment in leading edge technology and programming is designed to benefit our billing consultants so they can do the work even more efficiently and effectively so as to collect even more, even faster for our clients. Continuously improving our capacity to equip consultants and clients with real-time business-building information is a win-win-win for the clients, the consultants and the company.” eAssist is unique in the billing industry in that its success and reputation depend on the caliber of its workforce, which currently comprises 850+ independent billing consultants, supported by a relatively small team of exceptionally talented employees. The company excels at selecting, developing and retaining the industry’s top billing professionals, all while respecting them as individual entrepreneurs running their own businesses. In addition to keeping them connected to the offices with whom they work, eAssist leverages technology to keep their vastly distributed nationwide people network connected and communicating 24/7. Dr. Anderson and his committed Servant Leadership Team have big plans for the future, endeavoring to grow eAssist into a billion dollar company over the next 10 years.

Renowned dental practice consultant, speaker, and industry author joined eAssist Dental Solutions as Chief Operations Officer, effective August 1, 2020. “I have been in this industry for 4½ decades and I love what I do, but I could not be more excited to begin this new chapter in my life,” said Lois Banta upon accepting the position. From terrified dental patient to popular international speaker and dental consultant, Lois has been involved in dentistry for more than 40 years. She was a valuable administrative team member for 25 years in private practices, then formed Banta Consulting in 1998, and exploded into the speaking and consulting world. Living up to her mantra of “Energy. Positivity. Impact.” she quickly became a sought-after international speaker and consultant, and much-published author in respected dental industry journals and publications. She makes her “Lois’ lessons” available through books and forms that help keep practices on track toward unparalleled success. She also became owner and CEO of the well-attended Speaking Consulting Network (SCN) in 2010. Lois has brought her extraordinary insight into the dynamics that make a practice successful to countless practices of all sizes, taking them from mediocrity to excellence. Her presentations, seminars and customized team retreats offer creative solutions, proven communication strategies and solid systems that boost revenue, decrease stress, and build a positive atmosphere where employees love their jobs, and patients look forward to visits. As a staff trainer and team builder, Lois effectively teaches teams how to move in the same direction while performing their individual tasks. Her no-nonsense approach and tenacity have earned this 5-foot tall dynamo the apt reputation, “Ten Foot Tall and Bullet Proof.” eAssist has been tapping into Lois Banta’s expertise for years – her virtual presentations receiving rave reviews every time. Dubbed “Dentistry’s Insurance Detective,” Lois likes to roll up her sleeves, find lost money and get it in the bank for her clients… and effectively teaches others to do the same. In addition, her professional and personal development seminars have greatly benefitted eAssist consultants and employees alike. Said Dr. James Anderson, DMD, Servant Leader/CEO/Founder of eAssist, “Lois’ expertise in communication, team-building and development, dental insurance billing and collections make her an ideal addition to the eAssist family.

Tech-driven systems keep this vast nationwide people network connected and communicating 24/7. Dr. Anderson shares Lois’ belief that an organization can implement strategies and systems, but in the absence of strong communication, their effects will be limited. This is especially important, given the company’s aggressive goal to grow eAssist into a billion dollar company over the next 10 years. They will do this by continuously improving service levels, building their client base, providing opportunities to hundreds more billing professionals, and broadening their scope and reach with innovative new products and services that benefit clients as well as drive advancements in the dental billing industry overall. Dr. Anderson also explained, “Lois’ leadership and creative problem-solving skills will be extremely beneficial as we strive to achieve our long term goals.

We know Lois will be instrumental in helping us get the best from and for our people and our clients through effective teamwork and communication strategies.” Lois is enthusiastic about joining eAssist’s Servant Leadership team. She looks forward to the opportunity to bring her expertise in training, coaching and mentoring to the company and its many consultants and employees, helping them to grow to their full potential, just as she has done for so many dental practices.

eAssist Dental Solutions Places at Number Ten for the Financial Sector on Financial Times Ranking: The America’s Fastest Growing Companies
eAssist Dental Solutions shows sizable growth during the span of time from 2015 to 2018. As such, the company has been awarded a place among others from North and South America with significant growth in revenue. Financial Times ranking places eAssist at #10 for the financial sector nationwide and #188 overall. Dentists work hard to help their patients maintain good oral health. But not seen as often is the work dentists put in to get paid for the services they provide. When a patient's insurance is charged for a service they receive, it can often take months for a dentist to receive payment from the insurance company. Due to denied claims dentists are constantly confronting insurance companies to make sure they and their staff are paid. The responsibility of this dental insurance billing usually rests on the shoulders of the front office. This often adds more stress to a dental office on top of patient care. This burden placed on office staff, and the goal of delivering peace of mind to their clients, is the primary reason for eAssists existence. Helping the front office and working with the dental staff to ensure unpaid and denied claims issues get resolved, eAssist seems to be built on client satisfaction. Founded by a dentist, Dr. James Anderson, eAssist was created following Anderson and his staff having the same problems his company now helps to fix. “We had previously searched for a third-party organization to handle dental insurance claim submissions and appeals, but no one had quite the right tools and competencies to deal with the unique business needs of the dental office. So, we quickly realized we would need to engineer a solution ourselves, and that was the start of eAssist.” Says Dr. Anderson. Having brought this solution to so many others in need of assistance, eAssist has quickly grown to prominent success. So much so that they have been ranked #10 in the financial sector nationwide on the Financial Times Ranking: The America’s Fastest Growing Companies. Not only that, but overall eAssist reached #188 overall on this broad spanning list. The Financial Times ranking highlights 500 businesses across the continent that possess attributes of innovation as well as creativity. Compiled by a research company known as Statista, the Financial Times list ranks entrants based in both North and South America by compound annual growth rate in revenue between 2015 and 2018. With three individual ranking sectors including technology, support and financial, the list, although not complete, covers a large number of companies that are willing to make their figures known publicly. Each company on the list must meet the following standards:
- A revenue of at least $10,000 or equivalent currency generated in 2015
- A revenue of at least $1.5 million generated in 2018
- The company must be independent
- The growth between the years 2015 and 2018 must be primarily organic
- The company must be headquartered in one of 20 American countries

An anonymous patient had this to say: “Not only did Jon and his office provide a comfortable, client focused customer experience, but he truly went out of his way to make follow-up phone calls the day(s) after he worked on my teeth. I felt as if I was extremely well taken care of and as a result, our family will continue to introduce people to him and his services.” In addition to offering a variety of procedures to patients, one particular service, Zoom Whitening, is perhaps one of the most unique. Consisting of several steps the process makes teeth whiter in just a few hours. Beginning with a consultation visit, the shade of a patient's teeth is checked. The process then involves prepping for the procedure before finally isolating the gums for protection and applying the whitening gel to the teeth before treating them with an ultraviolet light. Dr. Jonathon Conover has earned his B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Notre Dame where he also received the alumni award in said field in 2005. A graduate of Ohio State University College of Dentistry, he earned his DDS Magna Cum Laude from the university in 2009. Dr. Conover and his practice have been recognized by eAssist, not only for their quality care to patients but also to the community.
