Our partnership with Manning Fulton began in 2012, shortly after a new CEO took charge to improve the company’s performance and reputation in the market.  As a regulated organization with a state-wide reach, his plan included informing North Carolina General Assembly members and North Carolina Department of Insurance staff about the importance of affordable access to oral health for North Carolinians.  Manning Fulton’s Government Relations team was and continues to be, instrumental in facilitating meaningful conversations that led to growth in our relationships with state leaders.
