The JA&A Team


The Jill Allen & Associates Team

Jill Allen & Associates is an orthodontic consulting firm located in the heart of Golden, Colorado. Jill Allen, owner and orthodontic consultant, has a passion for working with orthodontists in all stages of their career. Whether they are looking to start-up an orthodontic practice, purchase an existing practice or just needs some modernization in a mature practice. Jill and her team work to help their clients set up the proper systems and protocols so that they can achieve and maintain strong, successful, practices for years to come.

Over the years Jill has learned that a cookie cutter approach to orthodontic practice management does not work. That is why Jill and her team customize their services for each doctor and team they work with. By taking this type of an approach Jill is able to meet each practice where they are at to identify their specific training needs and goals. 

Our goal as your consultants is to provide you and your team with the tools and guidance to not only achieve your dreams, but to have an orthodontic practice that is fundamentally strong for years to come. 

Your job is to move teeth, our job is to help you succeed!

Meet Jill


Meet JillThe owner of Jill Allen & Associates and our ortho sensei began her career in orthodontics over 27 years ago. Since then, she has had the opportunity to learn and master every position within an orthodontic office. It was with this knowledge that Jill decided to pursue her consulting dreams twelve years ago. This commitment to success comes as no surprise, however, since Jill will tell you that she always knew she wanted to be a consultant. Her passion for the industry gleams, as well as her innate desire to see orthodontists succeed. Working with many successful doctors over the years has helped Jill perfect the art of practice success and deliver the practical approach to practice management our clients count on.


A note from Jill: I am a member of Red Rocks Church, a non-denominational Christian church located in Lakewood, Colorado. A mother of two grown children and a wife of 27 years to my highschool sweetheart Doug. Over the years I have felt it was important to take the time to give back to my community on a local and a global level. I have had the opportunity to be involved in many wonderful volunteer programs and medical mission trips across the world. I especially enjoyed volunteering with my local police department where I was awarded the Presidential Volunteer Service Award in 2003 and 2006.

I find my peace in the mountains and have an adventurous spirit. When I am not in the office you will find me camping, riding motorcycles, having date day with my husband or hiking with my two fur babies Harley and Theo. Although I like to think of myself as someone who is with the times, my team may say I left my heart in the 80s with my aquanet and perm. Christmas music is my favorite music, even in July. I just muffle Jessi’s protests by turning up the volume. If you would like to tempt fate by using that phrase “I’m only human” in my presence, may the odds be ever in your favor.

Meet Jordann


Jill's Right Hand Gal

Jordann has worked in many areas of an orthodontic practice but found her “home” mastering the start-up processes with Jill. During the build-out stage of your consulting contract, Jordann will walk you through the details and directives for each month, making sure that every “i” is dotted, and every “t” is crossed before your practice doors open.

Jordann

In addition to ensuring a nearly effortless build-out process, Jordann is also responsible for all of the marketing, seminar and event planning, and building of the back-end systems that keep team JA&A running like a well-oiled machine. 

Amongst the team at Jill Allen & Associates, Jessi and Jordann are often referred to as balloon holders because they keep their lovely leader Jill from floating away in all the big ideas of an ever-evolving business. 

Bonus Fun Fact: Jordann is Jill’s daughter!

A note from Jordann:

If you have spent any time with me, you know that I am obsessed with the pursuit of knowledge and psychology is my vice. I can often be quoted saying, “I watched a documentary on that!” or found in deep philosophical conversations about the ways of the world. When I am not nose-deep in a good book (well actually, ear deep, since I listen to all of my books on Audible), I like to spend time outdoors, at a hot yoga class or with my wonderful husband Kyle and our two dogs Raleigh and Ruger; which I am also obsessed with. If you don’t already think I am a little quirky… Ask me about my addiction to TV binge sessions. Can you say Netflix Junkie?

Meet Jessi


Jill's Left Hand Lady

Meet Jessi

Introducing balloon holder numero dos! Jessi is a wealth of wisdom when it comes to all things JA&A (mostly because she manages all of our current content and protocol updates). She has a way with words and an ability to communicate that helps her to form lasting relationships with everyone she encounters. Jessi is a master team trainer and HR manager for the employees here at JA&A. Between helping our consultants manage their clients and the creation, updating, endless proof-reading, and structuring of or our consulting content, we keep her on her toes! Let’s just say we would be lost with her elocution and leadership capabilities. Swoon.

A note from Jessi:

If you were to ask my friends and family, they might tell you I am a little crunchy. I care deeply about the planet and our environment because much like Jill, my heart is in the trees. I love to camp, hike, ride ATV’s, throw tomahawks… yes you read that right, and take every opportunity to soak up the fresh mountain air. My husband Kyle is my rock, and I would be lost without my fur baby Rado (or Mama’s Babies Puppies if you were to ask him). You could say school is my hobby because when I am not taking a class I spend all of my free time doing research and writing about things that pique my interest.

Meet Jenn


Practice Consultant  

That’s right, we have another "J" on the team!  Jenn has been in the ortho world for over 18 years and has experience in most positions jill-allen-_-associates-6within a practice.  Although she will always have  special place in her heart for the clinic, Jenn’s vast orthodontic knowledge base helps teams run expertly, without ever breaking a sweat in the heat of a busy practice schedule.  As a Jill Allen & Associates Practice Consultant, Jenn is trained in the JA&A secrets of success and will work diligently to show your practice “the light”.  She eats, breathes, and dreams about efficiency in all areas of an orthodontic office, but her compassion and kind-hearted nature will help make periods of transition with your team a breeze.

If your ever up for a challenge, Jenn is always up for a head to head wire change contest! Think you can beat her? 

A note from Jenn:

 If my team were to describe me, they would say, I am one-part country, one-part tomboy, three-parts heart, and three-parts sass! In a way, I can relate to the Grinch, but not because I am green and grumpy… I know what you were thinking! Instead of my heart being three sizes too small… my friends would tell me it is three sizes too big. My life is kind of like a romantic comedy because I married the boy next door… seriously… husband Matt was my neighbor for my entire adolescent life! We now have two young (hilarious) boys; Chance and Brody. When not at home you will find us at a rodeo, in the Colorado mountains, and always looking for ways to be in the close proximity of a superhero. 

 

 


Meet Tamra


Practice Consultant 

 

IMG_0230With her background in Biology and Chemistry, it is no wonder Tamra loves to problem-solve. Having gone to dental school for two years, we are sure you will feel she has a leg up on some of the decision making processes that ensure practice success.  Therefore, Tamra makes an excellent Jill Allen & Associates Practice Consultant.  Even though she decided that dentistry was not her path, the industry just wouldn't let her go.  She has spent the last several years mastering all of the core areas within an orthodontic practice… She even spent a little time in the realm of endodontics as an office manager.  Her vast background of the industry, coupled with the JA&A "secret sauce" (it may or may not include Green Chile), practically guarantees you will love having Tamra on your team!  Her knowledge is only overshadowed by her kindness, and you and your team will love setting her free to problem solve in tough situations. In working with Tamra, you will find that change feels subtle, and the journey to success seems a little less rigorous. 

 A note from Tamra: 

Those that know me best would probably say that I am a nerd at heart... But I would say I have a wanderer's spirit and love spending time outdoors!   While in nature, I often find myself pondering the environment and science of our lives while eating the famous Hatch Green Chile. Because one cannot truly consider life's intricacies without proper sustenance, right?  Whether it be in the desert or the mountains or anywhere else in nature, for that matter, my soul is never more at home than when it is wrapped in the gentle embrace of the outdoors. My hobbies include running, hiking, camping, paddle boarding, skiing, yoga, and playing tennis.  When I am not adventuring, I also enjoy spending time with my two sisters on the Navajo reservation, leaning into the simplicity of nature.  Did I mention I LOVE spending my free time outdoors already?  

Catch me if you can!

 

Meet Amanda


Practice Consultant

 

Amanda started her career in Orthodontics as a senior in high school more than 20 years ago.  Although she has held almost every role within the orthodontic office, she considers herself a natural in the treatment coordinator role and is an orthodontic marketing guru.  As a Disney college program alumni, Amanda believes wholeheartedly in a Disney approach to customeFullSizeRenderr/patient service.  And as you may have guessed, this philosophy fits perfectly with the core values at Jill Allen & Associates.  Amanda understandthe importance of quality consumer interactions that will help your team to go the extra mile and ensure that every encounter a patient has with your practice is magical!  We all believe she is secretly a Disney princess because of her kind spirit and beauty that resonates from the inside out.  Working with Amanda, you will find that she is big on team building and loves to bring the fun and “warm fuzzies” into the orthodontic office.  As you can imagine, it was precisely those characteristics that gave us certainty she would make an excellent Practice Consultant for JA&A!  With Amanda by your side, we know there is no quest too harrowing, as she will bring light and guidance to the seasons of challenge and change… You may even start to think of her a little like a fairy godmother!  

A note from Amanda:  

 My friends and family will tell you that I am one of the kindest and thoughtful people you’ll ever meet. I guess you could say I have a passion for making others smile… To me, there is no greater feeling than bringing a little bit of joy to someone else’s life. I live in southeastern Michigan with my three beautiful children Brady, Macy, and Molly.  As a family, we love to travel and visit zoos, aquariums, local festivals, water parks, and more! You may have already noticed, but I have a love for all things Disney.  So, when I am not with my family, I spend my free time helping people plan magical family vacations.  

 From Disney vacations to orthodontic practice solutions, I am your girl! 

 

Meet Megan


Practice Liaison

Megan, Megan, Megan! We are crazy about the newest member of the Jill Allen & Associates team. The “J” names are starting to worry about being out numbered, so we have lovingly dubbed her “Jegan.” With six years of experience within the orthodontic field, Megan is a little ball of sunshine, ready to take on any challenges she faces. She haMeg Editeds spent years fine-tuning her front office skills and honing her expertise in all things ortho. As a Jill Allen & Associates Practice Liaison, Megan will help your team feel comfortable, confident, and ready for success. Megan’s kind heart and can-do attitude make her the perfect addition to our team. Her enthusiasm, quick wit, and curious nature ensure that you and your team are ready to impress every patient that walks in your doors.

A note from Megan:

If you were to ask my friends and family, they would all refer to me as a determined sweetheart! I am devoted to helping anyone and everyone, and once I set my mind to something, I won’t stop until it’s done. While I wish I could spend time outside in the beautiful Colorado mountains like the rest of the team, those pesky allergies don’t permit me to do so as much! Let’s just say pollen and I do not mix. Instead, I have found happiness, knitting, sewing, or cuddling up with a good book. I am a brand-new dog mom to a sweet TToodle named Maisy (really, that's what her breed is called… Tibetan Terrier Poodle, say that five times fast). She keeps me on my toes, and I love every minute of it!

Our team is ready to help you hit goals! Schedule time with us to learn more about what we can do for your practice.
