Mary Beth began her career in the dental industry as a practice manager before joining the Southern Family Dental Partners team in 2018 as the Director of Operations. With her years working in the dental industry and other healthcare-related fields, she understands the importance of the private practice experience.
The best part of Mary Beth’s job is helping dentists realize the full potential that the Southern Family Dental Partners team can bring to their practice. With their experience in the daily office operations of a dental practice, they enjoy making the staff and patient experience the main focus of their work.
In her free time, Mary Beth spends a lot of time with her husband, Brad, their daughter, Maeve and their dog Ellie. She especially enjoys weekends on the lake and UT Football games in the fall.
Jennifer has been in the dental management industry for 19 years. She’s done everything from day-to-day office responsibilities to financing. After experiencing a typical corporate DSO structure as a Regional Manager, she decided that big, corporate DSO world was not for her.
Jennifer met Jason Kirkpatrick when he purchased a dental practice she was working in, and she found she had the same vision for private dental practices as Southern Family Dental Partners. Since joining SFDPartners she has enjoyed helping offices see the great experience of partnering with a management group that truly cares about the private practice experience.
In her free time, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her husband of 17 years and their two children. Decorating and interior design is one of her favorite things to do, which has been perfect as her and her family are building their dream home!
I wanted to focus more on the patients and dental procedures, and less on HR, taxes, management, and overhead. Southern Family Dental Partners made this desire a reality.
Southern Family Dental Partners met all of my hopes for an ideal transition. It was a perfect partnership and turn over. I continued to work in the practice full-time for a year and a half, and it went so smoothly that a lot of the patients never noticed the change.
