From there, she created a variety of sales-focused training workshops, attended many marketing seminars and became obsessed with dental marketing and branding as whole. Recently selected as a 2019 Honoree at the Daily Herald Business Ledger’s Influential Women in Business Awards, Grace is led by her philosophy of helping as many people succeed as she can. 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. Dental Marketing is Grace’s passion and she is committed to providing you with a superior marketing and consulting experience.

During the Summer months you can find him inside the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field cheering on his favorite baseball team, the Chicago Cubs. Get to know Marie Human Resources Marie claims that her cat, Luna, tells her she’s awesome every day. Coming from a cat, that’s a pretty glowing endorsement and we have to concur. As our Director of Human Resources, Marie loves the interpersonal aspect of her work and uses her strong, hands-on background in psychology to bring empathy and understanding to the role. With a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Northern Illinois University and years of experience in HR, we’re thrilled to have her as a part of our team. Among her many talents, Marie is also fluent in Spanish and showcases that by listening to Corridos every day. Her love of music inspired her to be a concert violinist for over 20 years as well. When she’s not working, Marie loves to chill out with her (supposedly talking) cat and is always down to listen to horror fiction and true crime podcasts. Marie’s positivity and work ethic make Identity Dental Marketing better every day. Get to know Joe Internet Marketing Associate Joe has a wide range of experience in all things marketing. From running email campaigns, to managing social media pages and building one of a kind landing pages, Joe has a wealth of knowledge that he draws upon every day to help our clients succeed. As a Digital Marketing Associate, Joe loves the variety of tasks that come his way and the ability he has to learn and grow every day here at Identity Dental Marketing. We love Joe for his honesty and reliability, but he also asked us to say that he was funny. You can make your own judgements about the truth of that statement if you ever meet him. When he’s not helping our clients with their marketing needs, Joe enjoys watching and playing hockey. In fact, legend has it that he was born with a golden hockey stick in his hand. He’s also a huge comic book fan and loves to spend as much time with his friends as possible. We love having Joe as a part of our team and know that you will too.
