It’s my pleasure to meet you! I’m excited and honored that you have chosen to get to know the amazing people behind Dental Team Finder. I know you will find each one of them to be genuine, caring and extremely passionate about helping you in every way possible.

Although I started my career in dentistry by accident, the 20 years I’ve spent in the industry has been a wonderful journey. Eight years in to my career I was blessed with the amazing opportunity to own Pinnacle Practices, Inc., now known as The Pinnacle Leadership Academy, Inc. For the last 15 years I’ve been blessed to work with thousands of dental professionals all over the world as a Practice Management Consultant and Business Coach. I truly respect and admire the friends I have made while working in this noble profession.

Thank you, for allowing me to introduce myself and welcome to the Dental Team Finder family!

Randa is Co-Founder and President of Dental Team Finder. She speaks both nationally and internationally on many topics related to the business of dentistry. She has published articles in Contemporary Esthetics, Dental Economics, and Mentor magazines.

Randa is also Owner and President of Pinnacle Leadership Academy, Inc., a highly respected dental consulting firm. Her desire to make a difference in the teams she coaches motivates her to learn more about “people” every day.

Adding Value. This is one of my foundational principles. From a very early age I have sought ways to have a servant’s heart and give more than I receive. Dental Team Finder is no different for me. In fact, I wasn’t adding as much value in my corporate career, which led me to take the jump into business ownership. I value people greatly and it is my firm belief that we are capable of much more than we believe is possible. We are limited only by the beliefs we choose to adhere to.

I started my career in dentistry back in 1994 as a Sales Representative for Brasseler USA where I spent 6 years until I transitioned over to Align Technology, Inc. (makers of Invisalign®). Align Technology was a very exciting position for me getting to usher in a revolutionary product and a new technology for straightening teeth. I became a Regional Manager in 2007 and that is where I found my love of coaching and leadership. I always envisioned myself as a coach and when it happened, it made a huge impact in my world and for the company.

What I really saw through my coaching and leadership with Align was that I was adding value not just to my team, but also to the offices I served. The value extended well beyond that of just Invisalign®, but in areas of New Patients, Finance, Marketing & yes, dental team members.

I am happily married for going on 18 years to my much better half Amie. I am the proud father of three wonderful children – Karson 15, Keaton 12 & Kynkade 9. We enjoy Family Movie Night every Friday and we love vacationing and traveling together (believe it, or not). They are an inspiration to me and they add more value to me than I to them most times.

I look forward to meeting you and hope to serve and add value to you very soon!

Keith is Co-Founder and CEO of Dental Team Finder. He has led teams in Sales & Marketing and has been in the dental industry for over 20 years. He has lectured in the dental and orthodontic fields and has been a contributor to many articles and studies in his tenure with Brasseler USA and Align Technology. Keith is a student of Leadership and believes that this endeavor is a journey, not a destination.

Growing up in a small farm community in rural Illinois, I learned that the key to a successful happy life was a combination of dedication, faith, family, fun, kindness and teamwork.

After 20 years in the dental industry, I believe the same ingredients for happiness and success apply to any field, not just the cornfield. When some of these key elements are missing, or we find ourselves missing an important leg of our team, we begin to struggle, and unfortunately our happiness and success start to fade.

I have found a true passion in working with dental teams to maximize their internal systems and communication skills. As the Director of Client Relations for Dental Team Finder my goal is to make a positive impact with every team we touch, whatever their need may be. I am confident that our Dental Team Finder family has the heart, dedication and determination required to assist you in reaching the level of happiness and success desired in your dental practice.”

Tricia Nardi has served as an expanded duties dental assistant, financial and patient coordinator, and practice manager for several of the top names and lead practitioners in the Chicagoland area. Tricia joined the Pinnacle Leadership Academy team in 2013 as Director of Client Relations, and is excited to take on the same role with Dental Team Finder. This busy mother of three brings her high energy and positive outlook with her wherever she goes.

The pursuit of happiness is by far my favorite unalienable right and I feel strongly that it should apply to all areas of life. I have the amazing opportunity to put this belief into action every day at Dental Team Finder. The pursuit of happiness is apparent in the camaraderie of our amazing team as we strive to embody our core values of trust of relationships. It is also embodied in our candidates as we put great pride into placing them in a practice they will love.

Currently, I am a senior Industrial Engineering student at Texas A&M University. I do feel incredibly blessed to have found a position where I can use my relationship skills to make a noticeable impact in the lives of many. I have come to learn from my time in the engineering program that my greatest strengths are relationships and dedication and I look forward to moving forward in the Dental Industry upon graduation.

This being said, I have come to revere dental professionals and believe them to be of the highest quality. I find they hold the cannons of their profession paramount and always strive to provide exceptional patient care. Our team feeds on this passion and it is my personal motivation to provide the best service that I can. I look forward to speaking with you!
