    Dee Dee Reid - Clinical Team

    Dee Dee Reid

    As a consultant and coach for dentists, dental teams and patients, Dee Dee Reid wears many hats. Reid’s specialty is in impactful communication and increasing profitability by illuminating people’s natural advantages and using them to foster bigger possibilities in their careers and on a personal level. To her, everything is personal. It is all about relationships and all relationships in business are personal.

    Another aspect of her coaching at her company Amplified Dynamics is in creating systems that are all relationship-centered. She bases her coaching on ambition, achieving dreams, making a deep connection from the heart. Reid teaches these techniques through non-traditional learning and out-of-the-box system development and communication with her patients and staff.

    “I believe anything is possible and that we limit ourselves daily in thinking based on the past,” Reid says. “I am able to shine the light on these self-limiting underlying conversations that hold us back from what we want and frankly deserve so that people achieve results that are mind-blowing and life-altering both for my clients and patients.”

    As you can imagine, Reid finds a lot of encouragement in her job but to her, the best part is making new friends with patients and team members every day. Making a difference in their lives is important to her, and her ability to create hope or giving those people their own “ah-ha” moments is where she draws a lot of inspiration.
    “I know from the deepest parts of me that this was the reason I was put on this earth, to make a positive difference in people’s lives by having them see and take action into becoming their more expressed and biggest possible version of their true and authentic self,” she adds.

    What keeps her going? A little bit of stubbornness from her dad, a little bit of competitiveness from her mom, and a lot of confidence in herself that she honed at a young age thanks to a lifetime of pageantry. Reid was coached for decades on stage, and she believes it has made her comfortable in her own skin as well as enthusiastic. These traits, along with those she learned from the many successful women in dentistry who have mentored her have helped her find the success she enjoys today.

    “My very best and most impactful mentors and coaches have been women in dentistry that I’ve respected greatly,” she says. “Inspiration came from their commitment, perseverance and confidence and from the fact that they were willing to make me their friend.”

    As a woman in dentistry and a mentor herself, Reid takes pride in her ability to instill her message in other women hoping to find success. Her advice to them is to allow yourself to be vulnerable and curious, to be courageous and to lead with your heart while constantly learning along the way. Confidence is key, according to Reid, along with enthusiasm and trust, but you can do whatever you set your heart and mind to, as long as you’re unwilling to give up.
