Phone Support Lead

Support Operations
Before you read any further: Diversity of thought is our thing at Opencare; we’ve worked hard to craft a team with a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Why? We're glad you asked! We are all solving the same set of problems from our own unique lenses, and this is fundamental to our success as a business and ability to produce creative solutions. Experience means something different to each of us, and your unique combination of skills, passions, and experiences makes you a valuable asset to our team.

Don’t feel like you perfectly fit this role? Do us a favour and apply anyway! 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 responsible for 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 Support Operations Team’s Vision
Our vision is to ensure that our customers, both patients and dentists, have an amazing experience partnering with Opencare, and this is where our extraordinary Support team steps in. We only invite the best dentists in North America to join our platform, and want to ensure that they experience the white-glove treatment that they deserve, regardless of when or how they reach out to us.
