Meet the Team
Prosthodontics Staff at Visionary Dental
Tim – Business Manager
In his support role at Visionary Dental, Tim manages many of the business functions of the practice, such as Marketing, Finance, and Accounting. He also assisted Dr. Moore with starting up the practice and was instrumental in helping to establish the Visionary Dental Brand. Tim grew up in nearby Broomall, PA, and attended Temple University for his BS in Mechanical Engineering. He then went on to achieve an MBA with a concentration in New Ventures from Penn State University, while working in Product Development for West Chester-based DePuy Synthes, where he received numerous patents for medical devices used for craniofacial reconstructive surgery.
Tim also worked for Invisalign, where he played a key role in the development and launch of numerous clinical innovations, which have helped to make Invisalign the leader in the Clear Aligner Market, such as SmartForce attachments, SmartTrack aligner material, & Precision Cuts…to name just a few. Tim’s favorite pastimes include traveling all over the world, antique car restoration, and following Philadelphia sports teams. The Visionary Dental Core Value that resonates the most with Tim is that of “Innovation”…which has been the central theme of his career, and the common thread that connects all of the professional positions that he has held since college…all primarily focused on Product Development & Innovation.
Tim believes there are vast opportunities for Innovation in the field of dentistry, far beyond just the treatments themselves. Innovations in how communication takes place between doctors and patients can enhance not just patient education and understanding, but can also facilitate patient involvement in the clinical and aesthetic decisions that greatly impact care and can have a very positive effect on the overall patient experience and satisfaction.
