Thais Carter, Director of Content for Dental Products Report and host of DPR Friday, recognizes the dental companies that are part of this year's Corporate Profiles special section.

This year's Corporate Profiles gets a new spin. Rather than exclusively featuring input from the CEOs, vice presidents and directors representing his or her respective dental company, we sought out some of the customers to get a better perspective on why they choose the brands they do. If it's the companies you would prefer to hear from, you'll still find this angle in some of the interviews.

We will be posting a new company profile each day of the month, which will include the complete interview and a product roundup. But, for now, watch the full episode of DPR Friday to hear what you can anticipate from this special section over the course of the month on our website.

Read the full transcript from this episode of DPR Friday below....

Welcome to this week’s episode of DPR Friday. I’m Thais Carter, Director of Content for Advanstar Dental Media. Our annual look inside the industry takes a different spin this year. Usually, companies are pretty great at telling their story - and in the August issue, you’ll find a few CEOs, VPs and Directors eager to share how their companies are evolving to better meet the dentist’s needs. But I promised a twist, and here it is:

A few companies allowed us to interview their customers, and let those women and men help make the case for why its worth doing business with them. Who better to tell us about the manufacturer than the people who use their products everyday?
