BIO: By Invitation Only — Matt Itts — California/Nevada

Published on August 30, 2017

Straine Industry Icon: Matt Itts

While the dental industry has been impressed by the exceptional work ethic of Matt Itts for the past seven years, few people are aware that Matt started working at a young age making commercials for Domino Rally and Hot Wheels.  Matt also provided marketing advice to dentists at Intuit where he was promoted three times and recognized in 2013 with its Sales Achievement Award.  It’s no surprise Matt was offered the Senior Business Consulting Specialist position by Henry Schein in 2017 as his motto is “the customer is always right,” which is why Straine has aligned itself with this talented professional.  Matt manages Henry Schein team members in California and Nevada and works closely with them helping dentists discover the hidden opportunities within their practice using the Henry Schein Practice Analysis, co-written by Kerry Straine.  “During my consultations, I provide a variety of recommendations in concert with Straine that include ways to increase the patient base and case acceptance and I have to say that there is no better feeling than being able to help someone make an accurate and informed business decision for their practice.”

Matt’s family is his inspiration for working hard and staying focused. “I am happily married to my beautiful wife, Jessica, and we are proud parents to two amazing children, Samantha, four years old and Lucas who is two.” Matt is not only a family man, he is also a sports guy. “My favorite childhood memory is playing in the Williamsport Little League Baseball Tournament, however, these days you’ll find me on a golf course instead of a baseball field.  My goal is that one day I’ll be able to finish all my putts on the green!”

Even though Matt might sometimes struggle on the golf course, he remains confident in his ability to achieve his goals, “At Henry Schein we focus on practice care so our customers can focus on patient care.  The Business Solutions division at Henry Schein takes this motto to heart.”  Matt says he values the honest conversations he has with dentists and business owners, “I thrive in public speaking and truly enjoy the challenge of leading teams to specific goals.  Partnering with Kerry Straine and the extensive team of Certified Consultants at Straine Consulting enables me to offer more comprehensive solutions to my customers as I recognize the important role I have in taking dental practices to the next level.”
