Before joining the team at Prosperident, Dr. Jeanine McDonald practiced clinical dentistry for 23 years; with 13 of those years happily spent in private practice with her husband, where she took a managerial as well as a clinical role in their business.
Jeanine is a graduate of the University of the Pacific Dental School, the first dental school in the US, under the leadership principles of Jim Pride, to integrate a business curriculum into the dental school’s clinical curriculum.
During Jeanine’s time in private practice, she discovered a great passion for the business side of dentistry; recently she decided to reduce her patient contact hours to focus more time honing her business skills. Jeanine enjoys analyzing numbers and systems and has found that dental embezzlement investigation has been a rewarding way to integrate her knowledge of clinical science with her in-depth knowledge of business procedures in the field of dentistry.
Not one to sit idle, Jeanine also manages a dental continuing education company! In addition to her operational role there, she serves as one of the company’s facilitators to other dentists. Jeanine believes in “paying it forward” and enjoys a great deal of satisfaction from being able to help colleagues learn the necessary tools to better manage their dental practices.
Jeanine is a member of several dental organizations and has served in many leadership positions with those groups. She believes that this experience coupled with her years in private practice has helped to contribute to her exceptional organizational abilities, as well as to her ease and effectiveness when communicating with others.
