Our Team
Brian McCarthy

Brian joined Futuredontics in early 2014. A respected product visionary and agile evangelist, Brian’s career has kept him at the cutting edge of ecommerce, search marketing and local advertising. He’s held senior positions at ValueClick, Citysearch/IAC and was most recently the CPO at The Search Agency. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Oregon.

Dental Fun Fact: Brian was fortunate enough to be blessed with straight teeth. Never needing orthodontia, Brian has had to endure a lifetime of razzing by friends and family jealous that he never spent one minute in an orthodontist’s chair.

Bret McAllister
Chief Technology Officer,
EVP Operations

Bret began building the Futuredontics technology team in 2000 and now shepherds the team’s transformation to agile development methodologies and processes. He is the chief architect of the 1-800-DENTIST matching and leads distribution engine, oversees the computer and telephony systems used in our 24x7 call center, and manages the software engineering teams who build our state-of-the-art SaaS products. Prior to joining Futuredontics, Bret led a full-service IT consulting firm. Bret earned an MBA from Pepperdine University and two bachelor’s degrees from the University of Southern California.

Dental Fun Fact: Bret has never had a cavity. He credits this to his childhood dentist who kept a leader board in his office with the names and Polaroids of all the kids in his practice. You were lowered a position on the leaderboard for each cavity that you got. And Bret likes to win.

April Anani
Chief Financial Officer

April is a highly regarded financial professional who joined Futuredontics in 2004 after a successful career as a Senior Accountant at Ernst and Young. Her clients at E&Y included, IAC, Overture and Red Bull. April is a certified public accountant, a magna cum laude graduate of Boston College, and received her MAcc from the University of Virginia.

Dental Fun Fact: The tooth fairy has been visiting April's house quite a bit lately. Being a proud mom, she's happy to share in the excitement but as an accountant she's alarmed at today’s Tooth Fairy's modern rates.

David Call
EVP Membership

Dave oversees the Member Services department, which he was instrumental in initiating nearly 25 years ago. Dave has helped fuel Futuredontics' growth from nearly the beginning of the company's inception, working throughout the company in Sales, Service, Quality Assurance, Inventory Control and PatientActivator. Dave has a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy from University of California, Berkeley and an MBA from the University of Phoenix.

Dental Fun Fact: When it came time to have his wisdom teeth pulled, his oral surgeon told Dave he only had three which proved that he was higher on the evolutionary scale-a fact his wife and kids dispute.
