Rob Hays


I have spent the majority of my career directly serving dentists and their teams on the equipment, supply and technology distribution side of the industry. It is through a deep commitment to encourage and support the entrepreneurial effort of private dental practices that biteplane was born.

I am so thankful that you are here. I hope that biteplane can serve as a platform to support you in achieving your goals.

Douglas Kiene


As the son and grandson of a dentist, I grew up with some intense expectations that my future would involve dentistry. I made my way through just about every conceivable job within a practice and after college, I spent 5 years as practice manager overseeing operations and growth. I experienced first-hand the importance and difficulty of building a quality team. 

My passion for professional and team development now takes on a new form with biteplane.
