Three DENTCO team members celebrate 20 years with the company
In 2000, Lesley Dunham, Mike Harri, and Ron Keal joined the DENTCO team. Since then, they have developed a lengthy career out of their time with DENTCO and continue to serve the company with pride.
Lesley Dunham, Executive Assistant to the COO, Director of Quality Service Inspectors, and oversees the Project Department
Lesley Dunham has served in many different roles with DENTCO. “I’ve literally worked in every department except accounting and contracts/proposals.”
When asked what she enjoys about DENTCO, she said, “I’ve stayed with DENTCO for so long because of the culture. It’s a very family-oriented company, with an open-door policy, and everyone is friendly. You’re allowed to be the best you can be.”
Lesley moved from Ireland when she met her husband in the states, and she was previously a trained chef. She still loves to cook to this day and her favorite foods are Mediterranean, Irish and French dishes.
Mike Harri, Information Tech Manager
Mike loves that DENTCO has “maintained a family atmosphere, which is hard to do as an organization grows.”
Being in a technology role, Mike has seen a lot of changes in 20 years and his work has evolved as the technology for email, servers, and web access has changed.
During his free time, Mike enjoys traveling to Florida, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and other U.S. cities he’s never visited. He also rocks the guitar and likes spending time with his family.
Ron Keal, QSI Manager
Ron has moved around DENTCO’s Quality Service Department, and when he started in his current role as QSI Manager, there were two inspectors, and now DENTCO has 85 and growing.
On his career with DENTCO, “Twenty years goes by fast when you’re having fun.” Ron especially likes the “company culture and the open-door policy that makes everybody feel like they are valued and have something they might want to contribute.”
Ron’s also a dedicated horse racing fan and started the DENTCO Kentucky Derby that happens each May (except for 2020). The winner gets a mint julep glass or other fun prizes!
