Chris Pistorius, CEO & Founder of KickStart Dental Marketing

We are a boutique dental marketing agency that has exclusively worked in the dental industry for 15+ years. We only take on a certain number of new clients each year and we only work with one practice in each market. We’ve intentionally remained boutique, ensuring customized marketing campaigns for our clients. Our secret weapon is our Launch Pad Strategy, a proven process that delivers faster, more predictable, and sustainable results.

Warning! This is the side effect of us fixing your marketing.

A MODERN dental marketing company FOR TODAY’S WORLD

dental marketing experts

We only work with Dentists & Orthodontists and have been since 2009. We know the lingo, the frustrations, how your competition is growing and we know what works, and what doesn’t.

HIPAA Compliant

Did you know that a dental practice has to protect the information of people even before they become a patient? Even basic info like name, phone, and email has to be protected.


Our services are month-to-month with no long term contracts. We provide the flexibility to add or remove channels as necessary on a monthly basis, so you’ll never have to be locked into a long-term contract.


You can view us as your dedicated marketing department. We only work with one dental practice in each market. We believe that doing otherwise would be a conflict of interest.

big enough to get great results, small enough to provide great service

We are a boutique agency, which means that quality work and driving results are our utmost priority. We were named a Top Dental Marketing Agency in 2020, 2019, and 2018!


A dedicated Client Success Manager who knows you and your project intimately will be ready to answer calls, emails, and you’ll have regularly scheduled meetings depending on your specific needs.
