The Team Behind Dental Medical Careers
I’m Randa O’Connor
I was raised in West Texas where my father taught me that hard work and purpose are paramount to success. These things, coupled with my inherited desire to help others, have remained at the forefront of my professional career. In my experience, having owned four companies, strong leadership and excellent people skills are critical for an executive leader to succeed.
For 23 years, I have had the honor of coaching thousands of business professionals all over the world as a recruiter, practice management consultant, business coach, mentor and keynote speaker.
Our addition of connecting business professionals with one another in the healthcare industry to our service offerings was born out of a deep desire to help people make great hiring decisions that would result in higher and long-term success in their dental business. Owning my own companies makes this even more fun and rewarding because I know how difficult it is to juggle a business while trying to find, train and onboard the right people for your culture. We’re here to take that burden off of you and let you do what you do best.

I’m Karin Miller-Kuse
I am proud to say I am a native Texas, born and raised where football is a religion. I am a true Dallas Cowboy fan. On any Saturday or Sunday in the fall, you can find me watching the games with my husband. When time allows, we enjoy spending time on the lake, hiking and touring in our RV.
With over 40 years in the industry, I must say I still enjoy all aspects of dentistry. My hands-on experience in clinical, business administration and coaching give me the ability to help on many different levels. Purpose and passion drive me to show others a better way to provide dental care.
I sincerely believe that some of the best days of my life were spent making a difference in the lives of others.

I’m Rylie Granger
I am President and Co-Owner of Dental Medical Careers. I am from a small town in Southeast Texas where I grew up in a highly competitive, athletic family.
I’ve found many parallels between athletics and recruiting, and my competitive nature has served me well in this vastly changing industry. I utilize much of what I learned in sports to continuously improve and better myself as a recruiter and client resource.
Success as an athlete means someone wins and another loses, a true zero-sum game. However, in recruiting, everyone can win – the candidate, the client and our team! I give every client, candidate, and team member I work with my full attention so I can continue to succeed by helping others win.
I love being apart of a team that works tirelessly to serve our clients.

I’m Todd Keeter
I come from a family with a strong background in the dental field. My father, brother, uncle, brother-in-law and cousin all chose dentistry as their profession. By observing family members, I learned at an early age that work ethic, professionalism, teamwork and leadership each play a vital role in creating a successful dental practice. After graduating from Hardin Simmons University, I chose to use my knowledge and ability to recognize the potential in others to establish a career in dental business coaching.
As managing partner of several dental practices, I have embraced the opportunity to lead and utilize my coaching skills in the day-to-day challenges of operating a dental practice.
In over 27 years, I have had the honor of coaching more than 1200 dental practices to financial success, practice profitability and quality of life. Amazing ride!
I am proud that my friends in the dental industry trusted me to share my knowledge and guidance at dental meetings, study clubs and dental schools including Texas A&M Baylor College of Dentistry and UTHSCSA in San Antonio.
The years of hands-on coaching experience, thousands of relationships developed, and knowledge gained sitting at the dinner table with my family of dentists have led me to where I am now. Aligned with the team I spent 16 years of my career working with and having more fun than ever. I am excited to partner with Dental Medical Careers and am eager to help our collective clients with start-up practices, transitions and acquisitions and mergers. Let’s talk about your future in dentistry.
