It was over 35 years ago that Kay began helping teams as a Dental Practice Coach, and she proudly has been the driving force for hundreds of practices to reach and exceed their professional goals. Kay is passionate about her work and carries a strong background in dental business systems, team motivation, leadership, and practice profitability.
Kay is a dynamic dental speaker who fills her programs with plenty of laughs and tangible practice management tools they can take directly back to their practice and apply immediately. Kay is the Director of Coaching at Benco Dental. She is a Certified Consultant in Employment Law Compliance with Bent Ericksen & Associates, as well as a board member of the Academy of Dental Management Consultants (ADMC), the Speaking Consulting Network (SCN) and a member of the American Association of Dental Office Managers (AADOM).
