Maria Brown is the Founder and CEO of Tight Contacts. She has over 20 years' experience in sales and human resources, specializing in general, family, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. She’s managed several high-end practices, simultaneously engaging hands-on experience with a thriving consultative business.
Maria’s valuable marketing perspective in the dental and health care arenas transforms businesses. Her in-depth knowledge of all practice systems and her unique ability to identify even the most subtle changes a practice can adopt have proven to drive results and profitability. Her clients often remark that after they implement Maria’s recommendations and techniques, they are more profitable, more efficient, and experience what can be considered an overall company evolution.
While her consulting business was thriving over the past two decades, Maria recognized a recurring trend which most of her clients struggled with – the recruitment of the right employees for their companies and practices. She also discovered businesses often found themselves unable to identify the perfect fit to drive them forward. Driven by her passion for assembling the ideal teams for optimal success, Maria expanded Tight Contacts to include the recruitment component in addition to consulting. She designed this unique platform to connect businesses and exceptional candidates for permanent and temporary employment.
Maria is also proud to be the Director of Admissions and Recruitment at Unity Dental School. Through Unity, she connects with students and practitioners on a different level, paving the way for students’ professional careers by teaching resume writing and interview techniques. This acts as a conduit to finding the perfect fit with the perfect practice. Tight Contacts offers this platform to connect students and graduates with practices looking for externship candidates, temporary help, and permanent employment. Maria is a Seattle native but gladly traded her umbrella for flip flops and now considers Arizona home. She enjoys spending time with her family and the occasional frosty Margarita by the pool in her free time.
