Howie started NPI in 1989, and we grew out of referral demand from dentist/clients. After publishing his first two best-selling dental marketing books, the company took off. Day to day, Howie creates and/or reviews every word of everything we do for our clients. He is The Dental Marketing Whisperer.
Mark came to NPI about 15 years ago. With him came dental business analytics, technology, and practice management background. If Howie is the creative right brain of the company, Mark is the analytical left brain. The two make a powerful combination.

Director Client Success
Wendy leads our team of client success managers. Think of your client success manager as the hub of a wheel. They organize, orchestrate, and manage all of the finite details and timing involved within our client marketing plans. Wendy also works with our R&D department, testing, tracking, and reporting. If we are all an atom, Wendy is our mild-mannered nucleus.
