ORANGE, Calif., October 22, 2020 – Western Dental, a national leader in dental and orthodontic care, today announced the promotion of Eric Pellkofer to Senior Vice President, Orthodontics.  Reporting to the Executive Vice President, Clinical Care, Mr. Pellkofer will continue to build and lead the nation’s largest orthodontics practice.

“Eric is an accomplished dental operations leader, and we are pleased to announce his promotion,” said Daniel D. Crowley, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Western Dental.  “He has a wealth of experience and has the respect and appreciation of colleagues and stakeholders in the orthodontics experience.  Our orthodontics program and our organization as a whole are better for his leadership.”
