Tracy Martin is a Millennial Mom and the CEO of Straight Consulting; a powerful combination that utilizes her 2 favorites: Generational Buying Habits and Orthodontic Practice Consulting. Growing up in ortho, having held every position over the course of 16+ years, in offices ranging from start-ups to multi-practice/multi-doctor and DSO, Tracy is passionate about the business of orthodontics.

When she’s not speaking at regional and national conferences, interviewing ortho luminaries on her Straight Talk series, or hosting Straight Consulting’s signature TC and Marketing Mastery Courses, she can be found on the road, and in offices throughout the U.S. and Canada. Tracy’s mission is to put a millennial twist on traditional practice consulting and lead the development of next-generation ortho teams.
