Jason Kirkpatrick, D.D.S.

Founder & CEO

Dr. Jason Kirkpatrick, Founder & CEO

Jason Kirkpatrick created the concept of Kirkpatrick Dental Management after noticing the struggles his colleagues nearing retirement experienced from running a successful dental practice. With over 10 years of experience in private dental practices, Jason brings his industry-know-how to his role of CEO at Kirkpatrick Dental Management.

His favorite part of the work he does is witnessing his colleagues rediscover the excitement and passion of practicing dentistry, instead of stressing about all of the day-to-day business decisions that have to be made. Jason feels like he gets to help dentists throughout the U.S. embrace a new work-life balance and focus on the people and things they may not have had time for.

Jason lives in East Tennessee with his wife, Manasseh, and their three children: John Thomas, Kollin and Karsyn. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his family, golfing, and traveling to new and exciting places.

Mary Beth, Vice President of Operations, Tennessee

Mary Beth began her career in the dental industry as a practice manager before joining the Kirkpatrick Dental Management team in 2018 as the Director of Operations. With her years working in the dental industry and other healthcare-related fields, she understands the importance of the private practice experience.

 

The best part of Mary Beth’s job is helping dentists realize the full potential that the Kirkpatrick Dental Management team can bring to their practice. With their experience in the daily office operations of a dental practice, they enjoy making the staff and patient experience the main focus of their work. 


In her free time, Mary Beth spends a lot of time with her husband, Brad, their daughter, Maeve and their dog Ellie. She especially enjoys weekends on the lake and UT Football games in the fall.

Jennifer, Vice President of Operations, Georgia

Jennifer has been in the dental management industry for 19 years. She’s done everything from day-to-day office responsibilities to financing. After experiencing a typical corporate DSO structure as a Regional Manager, she decided that big, corporate DSO world was not for her.

Jennifer met Jason Kirkpatrick when he purchased a detnal practice she was working in, and she found she had the same vision for private dental practices as Kirkpatrick Dental Management. Since joining KDM she has enjoyed helping offices see the great experience of partnering with a management group that truly cares about the private practice experience.

In her free time, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her husband of 17 years and their two children. Decorating and interior design is one of her favorite things to do, which has been perfect as her and her family are building their dream home!

Jenna, Director of Procurement

Jenna is Ohio-born, but East Tennessee raised. Her family relocated to Knoxville, TN shortly after she was born, and it’s always felt like home. She started her career as a dental assistant in 2006, but joined Dr. Kirkpatrick’s team in 2013. Now she’s excited to step into her new role with Kirkpatrick Dental Management as Director of Procurement. Jenna loves how patient-focused Kirkpatrick Dental Management is. Each practice’s patients feel far more like family than just a client.

When she’s not working, Jenna can be found spending time with her husband David and son Ashton. She enjoys cheering Ashton on at the soccer fields, and sitting on the front porch with their two dogs, sipping coffee, and dreaming of sitting on a beach somewhere.
