Des Plaines, IL – April 10th, 2023 – Orthodontic Experts a multi-location of orthodontic clinics across three separate states, has always treasured our expansive community – whether it be our patients, their actual communities, our partners, and even our employees. It is because of, and for, all these individuals that Orthodontic Experts are able to actively and vocally acknowledge and treasure our community. With these efforts, our mission and values are easily echoed throughout the area: to make a difference in our patient’s lives by educating them on all necessary facts for their treatment as well as within their areas. Thus, we often show our appreciation through various and unique methods. With this said Orthodontic Experts’ mission is always visible through our dedicated staff. Therefore, please meet Ben Weisberg – our Patient Experience Manager.
“I love event planning and I love community involvement!” – Ben Weisberg
Before Ben came to the community that is Orthodontic Experts, he worked in the family entertainment business with dreams of being either a nurse or a teacher. However, he began noticing that he had a creative side that he was not catering to. This, therefore, began Ben’s search for roles that included graphic designing, advertising, and Public Relations. Thus, four and a half years ago, Ben found and started as a Marketing Coordinator with Orthodontic Experts – even though he had no prior knowledge to the orthodontic field. While he was successful with his endeavors, he still found himself seeking out new and exciting opportunities and tasks – such as asking our founder and President Dr.Yaroslav Yarmolyuk (Dr. Y).
Due to this, he began venturing out to the various clinics to learn about those positions. Through his own motivation, he began helping other team members. This also encouraged him to jump in whenever help was needed, thus encouraging him to never give up – especially when it comes to patients and our team members.
“We give our patients the smile that they’ve always wanted.”– Ben Weisberg
Since Ben had such great and beneficial inside information, he began to notice what Orthodontic Experts had been missing– a unified and engaging patient experience to help differentiate ourselves from other orthodontic clinics. Therefore, Ben started taking Orthodontic Experts to the next level. This also included interactions with the community and its members. With the help of our outreach into the communities, Orthodontic Experts has easily given back to organizations such as school districts, parks districts, sports teams, before and after school programs, our own team members, and so much more. Furthermore, because engagement with the community, our teams, and our patients has been so beneficial, it has further encouraged other departments to join the fun. With their help, we have recently hosted our own OE Fest to help educate our teams, a Winter Bash to say thank you, and other Summits. Through this overall collaboration of departments, we are successfully motivating and empowering all team members.
“Don’t give up – if you love making a difference within the community and people’s lives, Orthodontic Experts is definitely for you!” – Ben Weisberg
With the help of all of our educated and passionate team members as well as such phenomenal community members, Orthodontic Experts has seen incredible growth in a ten-year-span. Back in October of 2018 when Ben first started working with Orthodontic Experts, our company only had eight locations total. Since then, we have drastically expanded our patient reach and engagement into 24 orthodontic locations across three different states: Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana. Since Ben is the Patient Experience Manager, he always makes sure that our locations have great and constant interactions with our patients – whether through clinic visits, community events, and/or other overall giving back opportunities such as donations and sponsorships.
One way that Ben has taken Orthodontic Experts to the next level for our patients is through the implementation of our Patient Rewards Hub- which is a free membership for our patients to earn reward points based on their accomplishments during their journey and turn the points into gift cards. Also, you don’t need to be a patient to join as anyone can self-register into the program to learn more about what Orthodontic Experts is all about. This program is available at all 24 locations.
When asked what is the best part about working for Orthodontic Experts, Ben said, “Making a difference, not just for our community, but for our patients and team members [by] staying true [to], and believing [in], the mission, vision, and all our core values.” – Ben Weisberg
