In 1934 a small group of Doctors wanted to help newly practicing physicians get a start on their chosen career path. The Medical Dental Bureau, Inc was established to help those individuals. The Medical Dental Bureau was first established as a creditor for those that chose to use it, it would lend money so that those in need were able to put their education into practice. As a side business The Bureau also offered an after hours call center for those physicians. The call center was not what you would imagine, it was just one phone number. The physician would give out this phone number to his patients and they in turn had a contact number for the doctor, without having to divulge their home phone number.
As time passed and expenses grew, The Medical Dental Bureau, Inc. was forced to abandon the "Lending" and had established a viable business. The Medical Dental Bureau was the premier telephone answering service, long before it was as common as it is today. By 1967 after 33 years in business A-1 Answering Service was established to take on commercial clients. Along with Telephone answering service Medical Dental had established the Collection Service Bureau. A Small collection agency that was tasked with collecting bad debt for local physicians.
From 1934 until 2010 The Medical Dental Bureau was located in downtown Youngstown. In 2010 and opportunity arose for the business to own its own office and moved to South Bridge in Boardman, Ohio.
Through the years The Medical Dental Bureau, Inc has gone through many changes, moving locations and advancements in technology. The one thing that has always remained the same is our goal to be the premier answering service for North East Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. In 2012 The Medical Dental Bureau, Inc. became answerLINK Ohio, LLC, although the named changed nothing else did.
