Job Description for Dental Sales Representative

They must be aggressive when searching for new clients and responsive to current clients when questions arise, and prior work experience in a dentist's office is not necessarily required, though prior sales experience is highly beneficial. Dental sales representatives must also be prepared to use a variety of methods to boost sales for the business.
