I'm fascinated by the Rubik's cube that is

people + business.

All of my work is, ultimately, about people. I’m endlessly fascinated by the puzzle that is figuring out how to tap into a person’s greatest potential, creating the organizational infrastructure to support their ambitions, all the while integrating the elements of their life that make it all matter — family, faith, their bigger picture.

Entrepreneur, Dental Industry Disrupter, Family Man on a Mission

I believe in the power of business as a force for good — especially when you add smart, purpose-driven, service-oriented people who have the training and support they need to do their best work. That’s why I do the work I do in the dental industry: because in what industry, other than healthcare, do you find business having such a direct effect on so many people’s daily lives?

Right now, I’m focusing my energies on my roles as the CEO and Co-Founder of Community Dental Partners, where we partner with dentists to help them build and scale sustainably successful and accessible dental practices; President of the ADSO, where we help dental support organizations with the research, education, and advocacy they need to help dentists provide exceptional care to all patients.

I also enjoy providing much-needed education and support to dental professionals both in my role as a Partner and Executive at the DEO, where we teach doctors everything they need to know to create and run a robust, diversified dental enterprise; and as the host of the highly-rated DSO Secrets podcast, where I curate cutting edge expertise from industry experts to help business owners achieve their version of success.

In my day-to-day life, you’ll find me hanging out with my family in Texas, where my wife and our 6 children keep life interesting with all the fun daily challenges that running a ranch brings.

MAKE IT UP, MAKE IT REAL, make it matter!

When it all comes down to it, we're all on a lifelong journey of deciding what we want to be when we grow up. I’m here to help leaders and leaders-in-waiting develop the mindset and skillset they need to make it up, make it real, and make it matter!
