Rodeo Dental Achieves Back-to-Back Recognition In B Lab Global’s Best For The World™ Program
Every year, Best for the World recognizes the top-performing B Corps creating the greatest positive impact through their businesses. More than a badge of honor, Best for the World provides an opportunity for recognized companies to share knowledge, learnings, and best practices with the B Corp community and businesses outside of the community to encourage innovation and transformation across the business sector.
Rodeo Dental and Orthodontics has achieved ‘Best for The World For Governance’ two years in a row by nonprofit B Lab Global as part of its Best For The World™ 2022 (BFTW™) ranking of businesses that have made an exceptionally positive impact on their community. It has also achieved ‘Best For The World For Customers.’
This program celebrates Certified B Corporations (B Corps) that have achieved the highest verified scores in the five impact areas evaluated on the B Impact Assessment (BIA) — community, customers, environment, governance, and workers. Winners are judged to fall into the top 5% of all B Corps worldwide in their corresponding size group.
Corporate governance affects everyone. B Lab Global recognizes companies that have successfully incorporated their mission into the DNA of the organizational structure, protecting their long-term vision and using business as a force for good. It found that Rodeo Dental walks the walk every day with its exemplary governance practices.
Providing Dental Care to Underserved Communities
When Rodeo Dental & Orthodontics kicked off in 2009, partners Dr. Saam Zarrabi, Dr. Yahya Mansour, Dr. Brian Dugoni, Dr. William Dunklin, and Dr. Raffy Kouyoumdjian aimed to disprove the idea that access to high-end dental care for underserved communities was an impossibility.
They formed a dental practice that not only provided access to high-quality, affordable dental care for all — regardless of income, status or location — but established a foundation that was designed with a focus on the betterment of the wider community.
“Having achieved “Best For the World in Governance” two years in a row shows the entire organization’s continued level of commitment to our patients, employees and partners.”
– Dr. Mansour, Chief Medical Officer of Rodeo Dental
Best For the World: Governance
Rodeo Dental achieved an impressive 20.9 area score in mission, ethics, accountability and transparency for companies in the category of 250-999 employees. Our best practices were judged on how we engage employees, board members, and the community to achieve our mission, as well as employee access to financial information, customers’ opportunities to provide feedback, and the diversity of the governing bodies.
“At Rodeo, we are proud that our efforts to deliver on our Mission Statement and Core Values has been recognized by such an esteemed organization,” said Dr. Yahya Mansour, Chief Medical Officer of Rodeo Dental. “Having achieved “Best For the World in Governance” two years in a row shows the entire organization’s continued level of commitment to our patients, employees and partners.”

Best For the World: Customers
A brand new achievement, Rodeo Dental achieved a high 41.5 area score in the category of 250-999 employees, scoring in the top 5% of the Customers portion of the B Impact Assessment.
That means we are leading the standard for serving customers, offering products or services that support the greater good, with a focus on underserved populations. This award celebrates companies that add value to patients’ lives by providing critical services like education, healthcare, and finance management, and engaging in ethical marketing, data privacy and security, and feedback channels.
“Every day, as an organization impacting change for our patients, employees and communities, we are constantly challenging ourselves to raise the bar,” said CEO of Rodeo Dental, Dr. Saam Zarrabi. “Our focus on an enhanced patient experience, delivering on our promise of accessibility to care and providing education to the local communities continues, and always will be, a driving force for to us as pioneers in our field.”
