Lisa Smith, MBA

Lisa Smith has over 10 years of experience as the Director of Downtown Dental in Nashville, TN. During that time she has worked to create and execute a practice vision that delivers exceptional patient care, provides generous compensation to the owner and team, and inspires passion for the future of dentistry. Her work has increased practice revenue by 250%, improved profit margins, and helped patients improve quality of life through advanced dental care. Her role includes strategic planning, vetting new technology, financial planning, brand development, team development, streamlining operations, sales and communication training, improving patient experiences, and removing barriers to better clinical outcomes.

Lisa’s undergraduate education in Psychology and Leadership Studies allowed her to bring a unique perspective to her role in dentistry. She received her MBA from Vanderbilt University and has also attended over 1000 hours of continuing education in advanced general dentistry topics such as conservative prep design, 2D/3D imaging, TMD, myofunctional therapy, sleep medicine, full mouth rehabilitation, implants, and craniofacial orthodontics. Her blend of clinical knowledge and communication skills allow her to engage with her patients in a way that leaves them wanting the best treatment options available.

Lisa’s passion for improving patient care has infused her passion for helping doctors and teams build better dental practices. She enjoys speaking to doctors and team members about finding their vision and making that vision a reality. Lisa uses her knowledge and her real world experience to coach doctors and teams on how to build the practice they want by looking at the right business metrics and focusing on the three most important pieces of dental practice success: communication, education, and technology.
