"Dentalxchange continues to thrive because we have paid close attention to our customers� needs and delivered Internet-based applications and connectivity solutions that truly benefit the dental practice," said Dentalxchange CEO Steve Brewer. "The capital markets have also recognized that our solid business model continues to offer an attractive investment opportunity."
"To attain a listing on the Fast 50 is no easy feat, and we at Deloitte & Touche congratulate Dentalxchange for attaining this honor," said Fred Poska, partner, Technology & Communications Group, Deloitte & Touche.
