Women in DSO® (WinDSO) Inaugural Event Interviews
enjoy these 10 interviews with patient prism's ceo, amol nirgudkar, and dental industry leaders and technology innovators
In this series, Amol Nirgudkar, CEO of Patient Prism, discussed growth by adopting A.I. and technology in DSOs with DSO leadership and dental technology companies that are building platforms for DSOs. Patient Prism is very proud to be a supporter of the WinDSO organization.
Ellie Naderi, CEO
Naderi advocates going slow to go fast. Before acquiring offices, CEOs first need to develop the functional areas to optimally support the platform.
“I’ll literally make everyone hop into a virtual boat, hand them the paddle, and say, ‘This is the direction we’re going. This is what we’re trying to accomplish.’”
Jahnavi Rao, DDS, MS
Dr. Rao received the Award for Clinical Excellence at the inaugural meeting of WinDSO in Las Vegas, March 2022.
It was at this meeting that Nirgudkar and Rao came together to discuss the higher standard of oral health that results from orthodontics and the development of a significant education program for all Aspen Dental dentists.
Jodi Evans, CEO
scott drucker, dmd, president
Supply Clinic streamlines the process of ordering supplies, organizing purchasing data, and paying vendors.
“When you think that a typical DSO is purchasing from close to two dozen different companies, our procurement suite, saves them time.”
Sina Amiri, VP
Zentist’s A.I. can log into the payer portals and download the explanations of benefits (EOBs) and pull ERA/835 data from the clearing houses.
“Historically, you had to assign a team member to call the payers. The caller is limited to the number of inquiries that they can make and you’re stuck in these call clicks.”
Gina Bruzzichesi, COO
Nirgudkar prompts Bruzzichesi to talk about being a woman COO in a very large DSO.
“We have a concept at Aspen where we are Aspen One. We all work together for the common purpose of bringing access to care, changing more lives, and bringing smiles to more people’s faces.”
Dee Fischer, CEO
Fischer’s Professional Group (FPG), helps DSOs scale to larger organizations. They help DSOs create systems and develop passion and accountability among their managers and doctors, so they can more effectively lead their teams.
“My dad taught me one thing – always stay humble. Leave ego out of everything you do in life and be a servant leader.”
brian colao, director
+ windso board member
Colao’s 1st thought when asked to be involved on the board of WinDSO by Dr. Aman Kaur and Kathleen Titus:
“I’m honored to do it, but we have to back it up. We can’t just talk about it, we have to do great things!”
Vance Taylor, CGO
Vyne Dental provides efficiencies in the billing and collections process while improving the patient experience.
“Right off the bat, we drastically reduce the number of phone calls these individuals have to make to figure out why a claim has aged out.
Dr. Ray Khouri, Founder
In the last twelve months, Dr. Khouri has focused on replicating his DPO model in the United States with the launch of United Dental Corporation USA (UDC).
“Doctors are the same everywhere… They’re driven by the same fears, and they want to be successful. It’s not unique to any one particular country.”
“We want to make this a platform to promote and assist those women (85% of DSO employees).
We want to help advance women to C-suite-level and to board-level positions and beyond.”
