Dental firm gains growth ranking

NEW CASTLE — A dental business with local offices has been recognized for its growth by a national publication.

Inc. magazine has named Refresh Dental Management as one of its 500 fastest growing American companies for 2013.

Refresh Dental, which has its corporate offices at the Cascade Center at the Riverplex in downtown New Castle, placed 441st on the list.

An awards ceremony for the designation is scheduled for Oct. 10 through 12 in Washington, D.C., and Refresh Dental’s founders have said they will attend.

To be included in Inc.’s list, companies had to exhibit a three-year growth rate of more than 918 percent in sales.

“Because of what it represents, having Refresh Dental Management ranked in the Inc. 500 list is a key milestone since our inception in 2008,” said Kenneth Cooper, chief executive officer and co-founder of the company.

“We are honored to be recognized on a national level,” added Dr. Andrew Matta, chief medical officer of the firm and a New Castle native. “The collaboration and hard work of our team is the reason our company has grown and continues to grow.”

Dr. Chad Wise, co-founder of Refresh Dental and chief operating officer, said, “The Inc. 500 recognition is for every person in our organization. Without them, none of what we have achieved could have been accomplished.” Wise is also a New Castle native.

In addition to the top 500 list, Refresh Dental also came in at No. 11 in the Top 100 list for Ohio companies and 35 in the top 100 health companies.

Refresh Dental has 450 employees at 35 locations in the Mahoning Valley, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Toledo, Ohio, areas. The firm will celebrate its fifth anniversary Nov. 1.
