Our Zen

Zen Story

ZenSupplies set out in the beginning of 2016 with a simple, yet bold mission: to Organize the dental industry through curiosity. And although we may be young, we couldn’t be more excited about our chances of one day achieving it.

Our vision is to build an exceptional company with a vibrant soul where everyday, something special is being built. We dream of being a place where people genuinely love to work, and are always motivated to go the extra mile. Equally, we dream of building a product that our customers absolutely love – not just because it’s “easy to use”, but because of how it changes their lives. Clearly, we do a lot of dreaming here at ZenSupplies. After all, every great thing begins with a dream.

Zen Story

Why We are Different?

Passion.

We are driven by our passion to build a product that’s needed. We drive crazy hours to visit our clients and interview them. We are driven to provide value to our Dental Assistants and Doctors. We know what it means to run out of product or to stay in the office to count supplies to make sure you have enough products for tomorrow.

What are we driven by?

We are not afraid to say NO to the features and functionalities that our members think will not work. We are not driven by how many locations we have rather by what our active practices value the most. We are driven by doing the right thing. The dental industry is an amazing place to be and needs just a little bit more empathy and Zen for each other.

Why We are Different?

Our 10 Core Values

Be Curious: Curiosity is at the foundation of our company. What is curiosity?

Work Hard Play Hard! We are building something that is really really hard. And we secretly like it! For Zen team there is no better perk than solving a really difficult problem, and only then unlimited vacation.

Overcommunicate: We over-communicate with each other and our members as our life depend on it because it really does.

Be obsessed with a customer: Our product map is 100% driven by our Zen members. They are the judge and jury of what works and what doesn’t. Our Zen is to work hard on impossible, try what hasn’t been done before so our users can decide.

We have a soul: We are building an exceptional company, a company with a soul. Where Our people genuinely love working at Zen and Our customers absolutely love the product and our support team. Our users just can’t stop raving about the Zen Team.

Ignore Status Quo: We are absolutely transparent, honest and encourage “hard truths” as a foundation of trust. We would rather be honest and tell how things are, and avoid sugar coating for personal benefit.

Be Empathetic: We are driven by empathy and try to see each side of the problem. Every problem or even negativity has meaningful roots. Just be empathetic and seek to understand.

Speed is our language: Actions speak louder than words. “I’m gonna…” will quickly be vanished by “I’ve tried…” Fail while trying and document it, so it becomes an experiment for future success product launch

Apply a Positive Mindset: There is a difference between being “delusional” or “life is always great” and acknowledging challenges and have a positive outlook on how to solve them. Zenway is to accept the problem and “What’s great about this” approach to solving a problem.

Own It: Extreme Ownership. At Zen, you never hear “That’s not my job”. We take ownership, even beyond your own team and think long term on behalf of the company.

Who makes things happen at Zen

Tiger Safarov

Founder

I truly believe the dental industry deserves a technological step forward. The days of fax machines and napkin orders should be the thing of the past. I’m driven by my passion to build a product that gives people time, because it’s the one thing you can’t trade back for. Time is precious!

Dr. Scott Goldman DDS

Board Member

Dr. Scott Goldman is a dental industry veteran having founded a group of dental practices that see 20,000+ patient visits per month across 25+ locations. He realized early on that many inefficiencies are present in the dental supply chain management, and is humbled to have worked with dental assistants and hygienists for years to create a scalable system that allows for maximum efficiency and economies of scale. This is what led to his keen interest in Zen Supplies. Dr. Goldman has served as an advisor to Zen Supplies CEO, Tiger Safarov, since the very beginning and is proud to see the exponential growth and unwavering commitment and support Zen provides to its dentists and staff.

After I saw what ZenSupplies was doing, I immediately recognized its potential – both as a company, and as a place for me to grow personally – and wanted to be a part. I’m ecstatic to have that chance now, and even more importantly, the chance help the dental industry become better, smarter and “faster”.

Our job is basically to help people, and this is what I love about it - when somebody needs help, we all are here to do whatever is needed. Besides, I always wanted to have a job where I can continuously refresh my memory, being able to communicate with people and learn something new every day.
