THE TEAM BEHIND DENTAL CAREERS
Hi, 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 dental 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.
Randa is Founder and CEO of Dental Careers, Inc. She speaks both nationally and internationally on many topics related to the business of dentistry. She has published articles in Contemporary Esthetics, Dental Economics, AADOM, Henry Schein, Inc. Business Solutions and Dental Mentor magazines.
Randa is also Owner and CEO of Pinnacle Leadership Academy, Inc., a highly respected dental coaching firm. Her desire to make a difference in the teams she coaches motivates her to learn more about “people” every day.

Hello, I’m Todd Sheets
I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and I am a proud military veteran, having served in the Air Force and the Air National Guard as an Air Traffic Controller in the states of Ohio, Colorado, and Texas. After the conclusion of my military service, I settled in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and began my career in sales and leadership.
Over the last two decades, I co-founded and solely financed a dental sales organization that was purchased and integrated by a Fortune 500 Dental Distribution Company. During my 12 years with that distributor, I led various sales teams in dental technology, dental software, and veterinary software. I made the jump to Dental-Careers in 2019 and I am very pleased to be working more closely with clients now and look forward to serving your practice needs.
I live in Mansfield, Texas with my wife, Wendy, and our five rescue animals. We are blessed with 2 beautiful daughters who both live away from home these days giving us a little more freedom for devoting time to our passion for animals and our outdoor greenhouses.
Every Saturday morning you can find me playing pick-up basketball at the gym, Wednesdays I play guitar with my band buddies, and I am an avid and loyal Ohio State Buckeyes football fan.

Hello All, I’m Rylie Granger
I am Director of Client Relations at Dental 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 getting to know people and being part of a team that works together and tirelessly to serve our clients makes my work life amazing!

I want to thank Randa and her entire crew. They worked tirelessly and never gave up on finding me the right fit for my practice. Awesome job!
