“We're especially proud to be honored as one of NEPA's Best Places to Work because of what it says about our area's talent pool," said Chuck Cohen, managing director at Benco Dental. "We couldn't have grown from a one-man operation to the nation's largest independent dental distributor without the hard work of all of the talented associates at our Pittston headquarters. We're grateful our people have chosen to work here, and that they find it rewarding."
In 2019, Benco Dental associates exceeded a goal of 3,200 hours of volunteerism in the local communities.
"Benco encourages community involvement and volunteerism among associates," said George Rable, chief culture and people officer for the company. "It's an honor that those same communities recognize our team for a third consecutive year with this ranking."
