Im an owner of a Dental Lab in Nashville, We have been in business here for over 25 years.  I am looking for great sales reps, to offer 10% of all sales for each Dentist you have send work to us. As long as the Dentist keeps sending us work your commission will be deposited to you every month.  Build up a great residual commission! please email me for more info.

great to finally meet you in Chicago. Thanks for stopping by. Did you get over to the Patterson and Schein events @ Joe's on Weed and Excalibur?

Hey Hu-Friedy Boy,

What's up? Hope the industry is treating you well.

Glad to hear it. Hu-Friedy is a great company and Chicago is a great town. You might want to trade your water skis in for snow skis.

Couldn't happen to a better guy. Keep us in the loop.

If you can get to New York that meeting is the last big one of the year. Check out the events section. If not the Yankee in Boston in January or the Chicago Mid-Winter in February. If you end up at any of these meetings let me know and we can get a cup of coffee.

Hi Ben:

So sorry for the delay. As you can tell I don't get on this forum very often. How are things coming on the job search? To your questions no problem using my previous reply. And as to who pays the bill on a cotravel, its almost always the manufacturer as most of us have expense accounts for that purpose. So in my way of thinking its a win win situation where you get sales support and training, additional promotional opportunities and a free lunch. Worst case you are well fed and well educated after a day with a good manufacturer rep :-)

Have you heard anything yet from Schein?

In general, dental retail reps cover all of their own expenses. This includes gas, etc. In the early stages of your career, many companies (like Schein) will give a car allowance, which is to cover some of those expenses.

I drive about 36,000 miles per year, and spend about $5,000-6,000 on gas. I usually do two meetings per year, which can cost as much or as little as you want. The most costly for me is the Chicago Midwinter.

In addition, you will have cell phone expense, perhaps a home office phone/fax, etc. Plus, if you take lunch to any doctors/opffices, that is on you, unless you are co-traveling with a manufacturer's rep.

One rule I live by with the manufacturer's reps, though, is never assume that they will pay for lunch. I always check with them before taking a doctor to lunch. In my personal experience, they ALWAYS pay...but it is a courtesy to check first.

Pearson is actually based out of Sylmar California. They do have a branch in Phoenix. They have 3-4 reps here and are looking to make a bigger impact in the market locally. They have a long way to go here but a decent company.

I will take a look at your resume later today when I return home from Mass.

The culture at Henry Schein is altogether different than most dental distributors. Although we are the largest (and best) at what we do, we have the feel of a small family run company. We feel, literally, like a family.

Except, of course, when you get to our National Sales Meeting...which feels like a HUGE political convention---minus the politics! And our awards ceremony almost feels like the Academy Awards.

You look like a fun guy, based on your pics. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to meet you at the 2009 Meeting!

No worries about the friend request. I sent it again. Hope to change the configuration on the links when I get some free time.
