Kate Helvie

Administrative Assistant

I’m honored for the opportunity to be part of a team that helps dentists realize their dreams!

I take great pride in helping our clients become savvy business professionals while they improve the health of their patients.  I’ve had the chance to work for other professional organizations, but never have I found a company quite like Dental Practice Solutions with their high standard of integrity and commitment to the success of their clients.

My tenacity towards creating success for our business has led me to manage our conferences, oversee the client follow-ups and make sure all systems run smooth.  Our client systems between the services we provide and our dedicated follow-ups are a big key to their success.

Personally, I enjoy cuddling up with a quilt and reading a good book, spending time with my family at the beach, and of course, what girl would not enjoy a day of shopping?!  Life is the best when I am making memories with my husband, Justin, and daughters, Sophie and Kyra.

Vanessa Garman

Strategic Planning Coach

I am excited to be part of a team that helps dentists achieve their dreams.

I experience great satisfaction when helping our clients become successful entrepreneurs.  I have worked in the education industry for many years as well as the medical field and I have never known a business other than Dental Practice Solutions that dictates 5 Star Customer Care. Our entire team sets such high standards of integrity and commitment to the success of our clients and you will find like I have, that every one of our team members “walks their talk.”

 I began my professional career working in the medical field and soon recognized that I enjoy helping others succeed in life and live their dreams. I really enjoy offering the best customer care to others. I am an outgoing person so the fact that I get to know our clients first is very exciting to me.

My drive towards high standards in customer care led me to support our educational events as well as our sales and marketing systems, to provide a very high level of customer care for everyone I interact with.

In my current position, I help dentists see their true potential for success, as well, as I oversee our client experiences from their inception to their exit.

Personally, I enjoy time with my family, tennis, great food and time on the lake in our boat.  The team I work with and time with my family are what make my life really great!
