Take Mieka for example. She began her career as a Category Analyst in eCommerce, before joining Opencare as a Customer Success Manager. During her time in this role, Mieka took the initiative to start solving problems for our remote Support Operations team. Today, Mieka is driving a ton of impact on the Finance & Data team by overseeing Billing and Accounts Receivable, and is managing the remote Support team to ensure the best possible customer experience for our dental practices.

Opencare’s Vision

To enable people to have optimal health of mind and body, by ensuring they get the preventive care they need.

Opencare is re-designing the dentist visit with a focus on wellness. We live our most important life moments, from laughing and smiling to eating and talking, through our mouths. Yet for such an important body part, the thought of visiting the dentist instills fear and confusion in most people. To us, that doesn’t make any sense.
That’s why we’re rebuilding every moment of the dental experience; not only to be impactful during the visit, but life enriching afterward, too. If you never thought you’d say “Wow, I love my dentist!”, our goal is to get you there.
We believe that people reach their full potential at work when they are happy and healthy outside of work. You can learn more about our culture, as well as our professional and personal benefits here. You can also hear about it directly from our team here. 

Our Finance & Data Team’s Vision
We believe data is the key to good decision making and visibility is critical for ownership. By ensuring all aspects of the business have both, we will be able to set aggressive goals, celebrate our successes, understand our misses, and pivot rapidly as needed. True partnership is therefore critical between Finance and all teams across the organization and as such, the Finance team will pride themselves on the breadth of their company wide understanding and teamwork when helping the entire company reach our goals while guiding and managing cash and profitability during this critical period and beyond.
