“At DentalPlans.com, we’re committed to empowering people with the tools and information they need to access quality dental care,” said Jenn Stoll, Chief Commercial Officer, DentalPlans.com. “I’m so excited to have John join the DentalPlans.com team, and look forward to working collaboratively with him to continue to drive that mission forward.”

He has a Bachelor of Science from the United States Naval Academy, served as a Naval Officer, and earned a Master of Business Administration from Carnegie Mellon University.
“I am so pleased to join a team that is driven by helping people lead healthier lives,” said Pereira. “With emerging technology and the web, we can break down traditional barriers and get dental savings plans in front of the people who truly need them and who may not be able to afford their oral health care otherwise.”
