TACOMA, WASH. – Tacoma-based Burkhart Dental Supply is pleased to announce it received the Heritage/Legacy Award, the highest honor, in the 2018 Family Business Awards program sponsored by Seattle Business magazine.

According to a Seattle Business magazine representative, the Heritage/Legacy Award is the most distinguished award of the program and many prominent, multi-generational, family businesses from throughout the state submitted applications for that and the other honors.

Criteria for the annual Family Business Awards include innovation, growth, and business transformation.  “This year, we honor 11 family businesses that have shown through many years of effort and persistence the stuff that makes running a family enterprise satisfying, exhilarating and – ultimately – rewarding,” notes the article about this year’s honorees on the Seattle Business magazine website.

The Burkhart article notes that company values include providing strong, customer-oriented service and honoring its 400 employees, including about 150 in Washington.  Dedicated to helping its clients succeed, in the past five years, Burkhart sales have increased almost 20 percent.  The company services 7,500 dental offices with dental supplies, equipment and technology, equipment service and repair, and consulting services. Burkhart President Lori Burkhart Isbell received the honor at a reception hosted by Seattle Business magazine.
