GREEN BAY – The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay’s Office of Career Services has named Dental City as its 2017 Recruitment Partner of the Year, continuing a tradition of community partnership that emphasizes hands-on learning. Dental City received the award at UW-Green Bay’s Etiquette Luncheon, Feb. 19, 2018.
Over the past five years, the alumni at Dental City have been engaged with the campus and students in numerous ways. They return to campus to speak to classes, make presentations to student organizations and regularly attend events like the “Dine Like a Professional Etiquette Lunch” to support and engage our students. Dental City has been a four-time job fair sponsor, a three-time PRO sponsor and a two-year sponsor of Business Week with the Cofrin School of Business. This organization was also instrumental in the first Communication Week, established in 2017, with the co-owners, both alumni, serving as keynote speakers for the banquet.
Dental City has a strong affiliation with alumni, with both co-owners of the company and 17 other employees being UW-Green Bay graduates. They also have employed seven student interns, with three still interning there today.
Headquartered in Green Bay, Dental City was founded in 1993 by John Mathys ’87 (Business Administration), Dave Withbroe ’87 (Business Administration and Communication Processes), and Roy Stumpf. Built from scratch, they pride themselves on gaining their customers the old fashioned way, with superior customer service and fair prices. The organization serves more than 10,000 dentists, buying groups and other individuals straight out of their corporate headquarters and 40,000 square foot distribution center.
UW-Green Bay Career Services chooses an organization or community member to receive the annual award based on their exceptional commitment to Career Services’ mission of creating learning opportunities for UW-Green Bay students in their fields of study, whether through internships or other hands-on experiences. The award was established in 2006 and first awarded in 2007, with past recipients including Baker Tilly, Associated Bank, ACUITY, Schneider, Humana, Schreiber Foods, Glen Tilot with Brown County Human Services, the Arthritis Foundation-Northeast District, Schenck and Integrys/ WEC Energy Group.
