Straine Industry Icon — Christopher J. Holland, DDS – San Antonio, TX

Published on May 17, 2017

A Straine Industry Icon possesses the drive to achieve results, the ability to take initiative, skills in collaboration and teamwork and the ability to lead teams.

“My practice had plateaued in performance and production and I wasn’t comfortable with the general sense of complacency that existed and I felt both my practice and I needed a jump start,” Dr. Chris Holland of New Image Dentistry in San Antonio said before becoming a Straine client in 2011.

With Straine’s help each department began to refine and define their roles and while Dr. Holland says it was originally met with a bit of resistance, everyone has experienced tremendous growth resulting in a positive impact on all aspects of the practice performance, “Straine’s ability to provide advisors with vast personal and professional expertise, along with its global awareness, has tremendous value for the sole practitioner who can find themselves isolated and alone.”

Straine Consultant Michael Lichtman, DDS says he is impressed with Dr. Holland’s ability to embrace change and grow as a leader, “We worked closely to clarify his vision and mission for the practice and Dr. Holland is always eager to learn and improve his leadership skills.”

Dr. Holland is grateful for the support he’s received from Straine and recognizes the impact it’s had on his professional and personal life, “I have a greater awareness of how my behavior promotes or stifles the growth of team members now. Straine’s support with identifying patient and employee behavior patterns, along with tools on how to best interact with each style, has improved my communication skills.  I have experienced a real evolution as a leader with Straine’s help and the same is true for the leaders of each department in our practice.  All staff members feel as though they are an integral component to the success of the practice.”
