Over the course of her career, Grace has become a recognized Dental Marketing expert. She was featured as an expert on the ADA 2016 Dental Marketing Expert Panel and has authored articles in professional journals, most recently penning a Dental Marketing article for Practice Booster’s Insurance Solutions Newsletter. Grace has experience in the creation and execution of marketing strategies, public and community relations, networking, patient communications, staff sales training, phone scripting and training, advertising, internet/web presence, SEO (search engine optimization), direct mail programs, email newsletters, and much more.

An accredited international speaker, Grace approaches every speaking engagement as an opportunity to educate, empower, and entertain her audience. She teaches dentists how to achieve practice growth in the most ethical and efficient ways. She inspires her audience to embrace change in order to grow. Whether connecting with an audience of 20 or 200, Grace’s information can transform a surviving practice into a thriving practice.
