Our Story

Dental Dash began as an internal project at Shasta Dental Services and grew into a team focused on improving non-clinical workflow experiences for front office staff, providers, and patients.

Born in a Dental Office

How can we help the staff? they are overwhelmed!

Dental Dash began when David, founder, was working with the office manager of an affiliated dental office in Redding, California.  He sat down with her and made notecards for all the tasks the front office needs to do on any given day.  It was quite a pile by the time they were done.

Working together with other office managers and consultants the team decided to start making prioritized lists of tasks that often became chores in the office that "no one had time to do."
