Ashlee Adams

Founder

Business philosophy that drives me: The “servant leadership” model of Simon Sinek in Leaders Eat Last.

Fun fact about me: I never learned how to ride a bike… like, not ever. It’s weird. I know. I’m open to lessons included as part of on-site client visits assuming all appropriate PPE is provided.

After a decade of working in various roles in the dental industry, Ashlee decided to face the challenges he saw many dental practices encountering, head on. He launched Adams Dental Consulting to help dentists overcome the financial and emotional challenges that are so common in today’s competitive market.

His passion for the industry was sparked with his role as a regional manager for a dental service organization (DSO), where he oversaw operations in multiple dental offices that had a combined revenue of $25 million. In this role, he had the opportunity to not only drive profit growth, but also assist practice owners with maintaining high levels of employee engagement and patient retention.

In 2016, he made the transition to supporting private practice doctors as a strategic consultant for The Dentists Service Company, a subsidiary of the California Dental Association. During this time, he oversaw and supported a team of advisors, empowering his team to effectively help dental offices achieve their goals.
