CEO, New York, New York
Educator and Advocate for Dentistry, Dentists and Dental Teams
Known for his positive contributions to the lives of dentists and dental teams across the globe, Gary Kadi has been a devoted advocate for the whole of the dental community, their families, and their patients for over 19 years.
A speaker, author and researcher, Gary re-energizes, interrupts the status quo, and shares discoveries and interests far beyond helping dentists implement systems and raise their profit margins. He is inspired everyday by the courage and personal successes of dentists and team members with whom he has the privilege of working and getting to know.
After years of studying the reoccurring challenges of team, finance, and patient issues facing dentists for years he had a breakthrough. It came in understanding the business model dentists were fighting to fix was created by a non-business practitioner who could throw up a shingle and be successful. He discovered the source of getting dentists off the drill, fill and PPO treadmill.
In 2008 while watching the first “Hangover” movie and hearing the line “You’re not a doctor, you’re a dentist” he then discovered his life’s mission of “altering America’s health by transforming the way the public relates to dentistry.”
He created NextLevel Practice to implement the Complete Health Dentistry™ business model where teams willingly embrace and implement change, patients respect their treatment regiments, invest in their health, and doctors enjoy practicing the way they envisioned at dental school graduation.
The team-driven Complete Health Dentistry™ business model takes any practice that is stagnating and turns the situation around very quickly in complete alignment with the practice’s values. Doctors and their teams are re-inspired by re-relating their role in patients’ TOTAL HEALTH.
Gary Kadi is also chairman of Partners in Complete Health, a non-profit organization committed to helping dentists understand the science behind “Complete Health Dentistry” and the connections between dental health and overall physical health. In 2013, he took the first step in mobilizing the Complete Health movement by producing Say Ahh, the world’s first documentary on oral health through Partners in Complete Health.
Is Gary Kadi a Psychologist?
“I’m asked that a lot,” Kadi smiles. “Actually, I barely made it through Rutgers University with a business degree but I always had an obsession for understanding the way things work. My father is an engineer and my mom is a caring bundle of love. I think I inherited a part of both their minds and apply it to the business of dentistry, dental team effectiveness and personal relationships.”
Kadi’s business and organizational behavior expertise came from working with thousands of smart, successful small business owners that he interviewed and learned best practices from over 25 years.
Home and Family
Kadi has been married since April 2003 to Judith, on whom he still has a crush. They live with their son Rome in Battery Park City, New York. Whether the Kadis are at Yankees Stadium catching a foul ball, traveling to Italy to enjoy great food, or supporting parents with children on the autism spectrum they look for opportunities to make a difference and have a little fun along the way.
