Dan Marut, DMD established Quality Dental Plan in October 2009 after three years of rigorous testing and development. His vision for QDP is to connect dentists looking to make a difference in their communities with new patients, while giving people without dental insurance a compelling reason to go to the dentist. Dr. Marut is committed to helping dentists achieve a sense of financial well-being and independence from insurance companies and provides the program structure and marketing materials to support them in this endeavor through QDP.
Dr. Marut is also sought-after lecturer whose articles have been published in several dental trade publications, including Dentistry Today and Dental Tribune. To learn more about having Dr. Marut speak to dental organizations, download his free Speaker Package here.
A native of New Jersey, Dr. Marut always dreamed of moving out West. He realized that goal in 2002, when he bought a dental practice in Ashland, OR. He has been honored as the “Best Dentist in Ashland”, which he grew from one outdated operatory to a state-of-the-art, two doctor, eight-operatory dental practice in only five years. He is committed to giving back to his community and the world through his profession, and founded his practice and both of his companies with that vision in mind.
Today, Dr. Marut lives Bend, OR and in his free time enjoys kiteboarding, mountain biking, lacrosse, canyoneering, snowboarding and adventure travel with his wife and best friend, Samantha. One of his most memorable experiences was a two-week dental volunteer trip to Nepal, where each day he treated dozens of patients in remote mountain villages, and even had a run-in with a Bengal tiger.
Dr. Marut completed his undergraduate work at Penn State University, earning a BS in Science, and received his DMD from Temple University. He has also attended the Kellogg School of Management for Executive Management training.
