Kerry Straine, President and CEO, Straine Consulting:

Kerry K. Straine, President and CEO, graduated from California State University at Sacramento with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting in 1979 and has been in business and financial management for more than thirty years. Kerry is a Certified Straine Management System™ Consultant as well as a Certified Professional Behavioral & Values Analyst. It was Kerry’s education and experience in accounting that led to the development of The Straine Management System™, the premier platform that provides strategic planning, leadership and team development, policy and management system design, training, monitoring and coaching for dental professionals throughout the United States and Canada. Kerry also developed the Straine Practice Analysis™ as the first tool used by the dental industry more than 25 years ago to illustrate the opportunities that exist in a dental practice. Kerry’s mission has always been to advance the understanding, practice, and development of leadership for the benefit of all professionals in the dental industry. Kerry’s approach is unique in that he does not limit his vision to dental practices, but rather links the role of education and leadership to every aspect within the dental industry. In 2001 Henry Schein Dental selected Kerry as an instructor on leadership, laws of teamwork, communication, and practice management for its advanced professional education programs at Career Development.

  • Learn why you need more than one bank account.
  • Only you should have control on finances
  • Update your coding and insurance information
  • Documentation: Not text messages!
  • Know every credit being issued.
  • No one person should run the entire practice.
