In the Business Observers’ article, “Open Wide,” Knellinger recounted the history of Progressive Dental as well as his personal success story. A self-starter, Knellinger prospered in a marketing firm before desiring a deeper connection with clients and a stronger understanding of their industry. This led him to his father’s dental practice. After observing a need for dental professionals to partner with a marketing and business consultant, Knellinger began selling dental technology to clinicians and helping them acquire new patients before founding Progressive Dental.
