Wendy Askins

Wendy is a Supervising Examiner at Prosperident, but she originally joined our team in 2012 as an Investigator, bringing with her over 25 years of experience in the dental industry. Her impressive resume includes managing and consulting with large group orthodontic practices and manufacturing companies, as well as an academic background that includes degrees in psychology and criminology and an MBA.

Wendy’s encyclopedic knowledge of orthodontic and oral surgery practices and her strong academic background make her incredibly successful in exposing complex theft modalities committed by both employees and, unfortunately, business partners. Wendy has specialized investigative capabilities which are unique to the business functions of the dental world and she possesses an uncommon perspective on these crimes, driven by her own first-hand experience to the multi-faceted devastation caused by embezzlement allowing her to personally connect with her clients.

Wendy is not only a Certified Fraud Examiner, but she is also an in-demand speaker and a member of Prosperident’s Speakers’ Bureau. She is highly engaging and possesses a gift for converting complicated, and sometimes frightening concepts into practical terms for day-to-day application in any dental practice. Wendy brings her tremendous knowledge of embezzlement to orthodontic, oral surgery and general dental audiences on an in-depth level that both educates and fascinates. She is a gifted speaker who never disappoints.
