Deb Roberge

Dentistry has been Deb’s career for almost 5 decades. With experience right in the trenches, eventually migrating to the business office and owning and operating a crown and bridge lab, she has been exposed to every area of dentistry. Owing to her interest in developing a more structured way to locate, interview and integrate dental team professionals, she built a dental only placement agency in Phoenix, Arizona that served as the prototype for a national franchise offering. Recently she is continued to work on a smaller scale coaching dentists throughout the country with team development working both remotely and onsite team coaching, and lecturing across the country on team hire, integration and retention. Deb's most recent endeavor, in conjunction with her technical team, involves creating dental-related cloud based software to optimize the overall effectiveness and efficiency of practice teams. Her latest project, OurPerioTeam©, is an exciting program that assists periodontists and their teams with virtually all of their very specific day-to-day business, including a stunning new method for automating the transfer of patient information both FROM and TO their referring general dentists. This is in addition to other functions that are not accommodated by any Practice Management Software.
