Lynne Nickels

Senior Consultant

Lynne Nickels provides customized and focused strategies for practices to achieve their goals and assist them in developing the skills, knowledge, and abilities to create and implement growth opportunities.

Getting to know Lynne

With over 25 years in the Orthodontic industry my passion is to help teams understand the big picture of orthodontics. I take a hands-on approach going beyond the "what" and including the "why," creating continuity among teams, ensuring follow through, and helping the practice achieve critical improvements.

I bring a depth of knowledge in office operations, financials and the analytical thinking required to organize workflows, administrative systems, and performance metrics. My focus is to assist you in identifying opportunities that drive practice excellence and deliver consistent quality patient experiences. I am committed to helping practices embrace their vision and navigate the challenges of today's orthodontic marketplace.

While I now call Arizona home, my heart belongs to Seattle where my husband and I travel to as often as we can to visit with family and friends. Wherever I am, I always look for an opportunity to play pickleball or tennis and I love enjoying a good book.

Lynne Nickels knows her stuff! She was indispensable during our week of onsite training when we made the switch from Orthoware to Orthotrac, including digital charting. This can be a challenging change, but Lynne made it so much easier. Even after her visit, she was available remotely for any questions and to help us take advantage of the features of our new system. (And she knows Orthotrac Reports inside and out!). I strongly recommend Lynne for any of your needs, she is a valuable person to have on your side.
