One Million Member Milestone

03/11/2011

LIBERTY Dental Plan (LIBERTY) celebrated their “One Million Member Milestone” achievement for topping over a million members in their dental programs as of January 2011. The Irvine-based dental benefits administrator honored this landmark by recognizing their employees and giving back to the local community in Orange County.

“This will be a day to enjoy what we have accomplished together, and to remind ourselves that the possibilities are endless. And those possibilities are all ours, here, now,” remarked LIBERTY’S President and Founder, Dr. Amir Neshat. Employees, clients, associates, and friends of the company enjoyed a catered lunch, ceremonial speeches, and commemorative emblems to mark the accomplishment.

At the afternoon ceremony, LIBERTY shared their success with the community by pledging an annual contribution of 1,000 Oral Health Kits to The Regional Center of Orange County, a non-profit clinic that services disabled individuals and their families. Dr. Neshat and Chief Operations Officer Stuart Gray presented the donation to Kurt Hubler, Executive Director of Cal Optima’s HMO program OneCare.

Representatives of several local dignitaries’ offices also attended, offering congratulations and recognition during the ceremony. Ronald Calderon, Lou Correa, Tom Harman and Dr. Ed Hernandez (State Senators), Don Wagner (State Assemblyman), and Bill Campbell (Chairman of Orange County Board of Supervisors) all sent certificates commending LIBERTY’S achievements and community philanthropy.
