Dr. Jared Pope, DDS
Founder & CEO
I grew up in Sandy, Utah. My father and grandfather are dentists and my mother is a dental hygienist so I’ve spent lots of time at the dentist’s office! Their examples have definitely played a big part in my becoming a dentist. I live in Chandler with my wonderful wife Lynda, and our two daughters, Eden and Maiya. I love to spend time with my family. We enjoy the outdoors. We are avid hikers, mountain bikers, and skiers. You can often find us out on the sand dunes, or hiking the Grand Canyon.
I have been practicing dentistry for since 2001. I am passionate about education and providing the very best treatment for patients. I am a big believer in prevention, heath care, and dentistry has to do better job of educating patients and employing methods of preventing disease, whether it be diabetes or periodontal disease. I now practice dentistry part time and am actively involved in mentoring other dentists and educating staff. I love partnering with other great dentists around the country and growing our dental family to better serve all of our patients nationwide. I started ProVerus Management because I believe in applying systems that provide real results, not just ideas.
Arizona Regional Systems Manager
I am a true Arizonian, born and raised. My passion for Dentistry started 13 years ago, when I was inspired by a friend who was in the field. I currently live in Mesa with my two children, Payton and Ryder along with our new puppy Zoey. In my spare time, you can find me camping, watching movies, scrapbooking or playing Texas holdem poker.
I started Dentistry in 2004 as a Patient Coordinator and, within a short period of time, I knew this was the career for me. I started with Dr. Pope in 2013 as an Office Manager. Through hard work and dedication, in less than a year, I joined the ProVerus management team and helped grown from 5 offices to 10 offices. As the Regional System Manager for Arizona, I love working side by side with each and every employee making sure systems are in place and protocol is being followed.
New Mexico Director of Operations
I moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I studied Law and Computer Programming at Central New Mexico College and the University of New Mexico and proceeded to work in a fast paced law firm. Passionate about helping people, I had the opportunity to go into dentistry. In 2009 I started my dental career. With my determination and hard work I was able to get on board with the ProVerus Management Team. My goal is to help grow their offices to be experts in all they do and expand the knowledge into new offices.
In my free time, I love going camping, hiking, white water rafting, etc. with my husband Sam and two girls Mya and Laila. We are adrenaline junkies and are always up for a new adventure.
My passion for healthcare is unrecognizable. I am grateful to be in a career where I can help improve people’s lives and health.
I am from Michigan but have called Florida, California, and Arizona home as well. I currently reside in Michigan with my husband and two boys. Thanks to technology, I am able to oversee operations remotely and connect with staff daily. In my spare time, I like to garden, go camping, crochet, and play games with my family.
I started out my career in banking where I was in the top 5% for sales in 3 states. I transitioned to dentistry in 2003. The transition was fairly natural for me since I have been obsessed with a nice smile for as long as I can remember, and I love when we can help a patient feel confident about their smile.
I have helped ProVerus grown from 2 offices in 2008 to 10 offices in 2016. As the general manager for ProVerus, I keep everyone on the same page. I audit transactions and systems for continuity and accuracy. I have assisted in multiple practice evaluations and acquisitions, office transitions, contracts, and staff training. Working with Dr. Pope has helped me grow more than I ever thought possible, and every day presents a new challenge along with new rewards.
Hygiene Education and Training Specialist
I am the Hygiene Education and Training Specialist for ProVerus Management. I am very happily married to my high school best friend. Together, my husband Doug and I have 7 children and 17 grandchildren.
I have practiced as a Hygienist since 1997. During those years, I worked four years in Gilbert. Then, over the following 9 years, I helped build two hygiene departments in ShowLow and Heber Az. From there I started temping in the hygiene departments in the east valley including Maricopa, Casa Grande, Mesa, Queen Creek, Scottsdale and Chandler.
During my years as a hygienist, I’ve developed knowledge along with many ideas of what works best for both dental practices and my individual patients. I took these ideals and made them my own.
I love to take responsibility for my patient’s from the moment they walk into the office until the time their appointment is completed. I have learned that by putting the patient’s needs first, not only benefits the patient, but the dental practice as well.
ProVerus has given me the opportunity to expand my career growth by doing what I love best by teaching and educating. It is my passion. To me, patient education is the key to bettering a patient’s over all health and well being. I succeed as the patient succeeds. By sharing and coaching my peers, subordinates and team members they succeed as well. When we are all successful, the practice grows and becomes successful as a whole.
Doing what I do has been the best career choice of my life. It has served me and my family well. I still enjoy what I do and am still enjoying the ride.
Insurance and Collections Specialist
I have called Arizona home for the past 10 years. I relocated here from So Cal – after growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have been in dentistry for the past 33 years-working all aspects of a dental office. I currently enjoy doing Insurance reconciliation, optimization and credentialing for Proverus. I have been fortunate to find a career that I love and work with wonderful people.
When I am not being the Insurance Guru for Proverus, I enjoy watching The AZ Coyotes play, being a tourist in Arizona and traveling abroad. I am lucky to have 2 wonderful daughters The oldest graduating from Dental Hygiene school and the youngest attending Middle school and plays club soccer. We share our home with a boxer named Angel that we rescued while being a foster home for Boxer Luv. I also volunteer with my youngest Girl Scout troop.
I look forward to working with teams to get the most out of dental insurance.
I am a Certified Public Account with 30 years experience focusing on small to medium-sized businesses and individuals. I am returning to Phoenix after four years with a leading DC local firm Russell, Evans and Thompson, where I was responsible for the firm’s tax research and communications with the Internal Revenue Service National Office. I was previously associated with the leading local firm in Vancouver Washington, Frumenti, Lander, and Wallace where I was responsible for tax services to small and medium-sized businesses, high net worth individuals, and the firm’s tax research.
I am considered a national expert on tax deprecation and have consulted with Fortune 500 companies on depreciation and state tax issues. I have focused on partnership, limited liability companies, and Sub Chapter S corporations for most of my career with the goals of minimizing taxes and maximizing value to the owners.
I have two grown children, Ken and Menolly, who both live in Lake Oswego, Oregon.
