Senior Operations Advisor
Brenda Water's career in dentistry began in 1991 when she met Vin Cardillo. With Vin as the CEO and Brenda as the Regional Operations Leader, they grew Northeast Dental throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut. Brenda reunited with Vin in 2020 to join Maeva Dental Advisors as a Senior Operations Advisor.
Following the sale of Northeast Dental, Brenda worked for several large dental corporations and a smaller DSO as the Director of Operations, Regional Billing Specialist, and Regional Practice Manager. Her tenure with several large corporate dental organizations, such as Kool Smiles and Dental Dreams, provided a deeper understanding and appreciation of varying practice metrics, both in the private sector and in the larger, underserved areas.
The boutique-style specialty practices revealed a very different operational scale and gave Brenda the opportunity to provide detailed attention to patient experience and team camaraderie. This accumulation of experience has provided Brenda with an acute sense of the impact of smooth operational components and forward momentum: “When practices reach a synergistic balance, the rewards are plentiful and multi-dimensional.” Her optimism and perseverance are often palpable and have been demonstrated by the strength of the operations she has helped to build.
Brenda and her family live in southwest Florida along with their three rescue dogs -- Annabella, Carlos, and Jimi. She loves all things musical and travel-related and has always been a voracious reader. During this year's pandemic, she obtained her NGH certification in Hypnosis and provides private sessions in-office or online to clients looking to reduce stress, quit smoking, or overcome challenges
