Message from the CEO
For over 30 years, OdontoPrev has been dedicated to one mission: bringing society closer to Odontology. Today, during this pandemic, what motivates us is to continue offering high quality oral care solutions to millions of people. We, at OdontoPrev, implemented several agile and efficient initiatives to mitigate the effects of COVID-19, keep our operations running, and take care of our employees, beneficiaries, clients, and accredited network.
Driven by this mission, in 2019 we hit the mark of more than 7 million beneficiaries, who could rely on the expertise of our accredited network composed of over 31,000 dentists. With the acquisition of the Odonto System, which consistently operates in the Northeast region, we complement our portfolio with new business model opportunities.
No achievement would be possible without the collaboration and commitment of our more than 2,000 employees. Thus, we value each employee’s well-being. We play a crucial role in promoting gender equality and guaranteeing everyone’s safety, we are aware of our responsibility, and our leading role in the business sector to build a more sustainable world.
Publicly committed to sustainable development, we are signatories of international initiatives promoted by the United Nations, such as the Global Compact and the Women’s Empowerment Principles. We received the Bloomberg GEI (Gender-Equality Index) seal in early 2020, now, we join a select group of four Brazilian companies composing this index, which are assessed for gender equality in their initiatives. Also, for the past 20 years, we have been promoting social actions directly connected with our mission, we provide support to 20 institutions and in 2019 we donated dental plants to over 6,800 socially vulnerable people. To assist our neighboring community, we donated a dental office to the Women Department at Barueri and we planted trees in Gabriel Chucre Park, in the city of Carapicuíba, both very close to our headquarters.
I invite you to read our Sustainability Report and get to know the details on OdontoPrev’s key highlights of 2019. At the end of the report, I meet you in the section A Vision of the Future, which discusses the main topics to guide our actions in 2020, when we will continue committed to our objective, propelling high quality Dentistry and innovating in our sector.
