Denise Ciardello had something special about her on the day of her teeth leaning appointment years ago. Special enough for a visiting practice consultant to approach her at the front desk and offer her a job out of the blue. Today Denise is co-founder of Global Team Solutions, a practice management-consulting firm. A professional speaker and published author, her enthusiasm and knowledge about the dental profession have helped many dental teams. She brings experience, insight, and creativity into her management style, along with a sense of humor.
In a profession that can cause anxiety in some dental employees, Denise’s consulting approach is to partner with doctors and team members to help them realize the dream of creating a thriving, successful practice while still having a bit of fun.
Denise always knew she wanted to be an entrepreneur. And she built her business on the foundation of ethics and principles demonstrated by her father, who owned a successful construction company in Houston. Today she is a champion of change, and says the biggest challenge of working with practices is people who think they know it all or are resistant to trying new things. The best part of Denise’s job is those moments when clients “get it,” those a-ha moments that can put a practice on the track to serious success.
Along with her talent for business, Denise has gained numerous distinctions in her industry. She is co-author of OMG! Office Management Guide, the “bible” used in training workshops. She is a past president of the Academy of Dental Management Consultants; member of the National Speakers Association and Toastmasters International and Directory of Dental Speakers.
Denise enjoys spending her precious free time with her family. She also loves to shop and work in her yard at home, which is situated in the beautiful Texas hill country.
