“Rosenberg is a visionary who saw an exceptional opportunity to advance the Canadian dental care industry,” says Stephanie Lamont, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Ontario Program Co-Director. “He successfully adapted to the health care industry’s evolving regulatory landscape and pushed through every barrier to make dentalcorp the success it is today. His focus on partnership development and helping increase access to oral care in vulnerable populations speaks volumes to the entrepreneurial and positive culture he brings to the organization.”

Since 2011, dentalcorp has been committed to advancing the overall well-being of Canadians by acquiring dental practices and providing resources and support to help them become best‑in‑class. By leveraging industry-leading technology, expertise and scale, dentalcorp offers professionals the unique opportunity to retain their clinical autonomy and unlock their potential for future growth, while delivering the best care and experiences to patients. In just over a decade, it’s become a pillar in North America’s network of dental practices.

Rosenberg is dedicated to creating inclusive oral care access for all populations in Canada through dentalcorp's multi-year philanthropic commitment in support of pediatric dentistry at children's hospitals. Through his Give Back, Smile Back program, dental professionals across Canada donate their time and expertise to provide essential dental care to underserved individuals.

“By taking the time to understand the needs of health care professionals and keeping patient well-being at its core, Rosenberg has set a new bar in dentistry,” shares Christopher Gordon, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Ontario Program Co-Director. “We are honoured to celebrate His achievements along with many other outstanding Ontario entrepreneurs across the energy, transportation, logistics, food and real estate development sectors who are building sustainable and purposeful growth in this province and beyond.”
