123Dentist Named One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies

TORONTO – MAY 10, 2022 – 123Dentist is proud to be recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. Now in its 29th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. 

The 2022 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $50 million demonstrating leadership in the areas of strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment, and financials to achieve sustainable growth.

“This prestigious award is a testament to our incredible team who work collaboratively putting the patient at the center of all decision making and delivering value and support to our dental partners and clinic teams every day” says Dr. Amin Shivji, CEO and co-founder of 123Dentist. “Our company was chosen for its agile business strategy and collaborative work culture that emphasizes inclusivity, equity, and transparency. We continue to exceed growth projections while staying true to our core values.”

Applicants of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2021 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include enabling a remote workforce, making employee health a top priority, acting with an increased sense of purpose and social responsibility, and a significantly heightened focus on cash flow.

2022 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at galas across the country. The Best Managed virtual symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
