Dayna Johnson loves her work. During her career of managing an amazing dental practice on beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington state, she started training and consulting with other dental practices around the region and found that was her life’s work. Now with more than 25 years of experience in the dental industry, Dayna’s passion for efficient, consistent, and secure systems is grounded in personal understanding and professional expertise. With a direct, pragmatic approach, Dayna helps clients develop standardized protocols for all practice management systems.
Seeing a need in the dental industry for more resources, she founded Novonee – The Premier Dentrix Online community in 2016 and helps cultivate Dentrix superusers all over the country. Dayna knows that your entire day revolves around your practice management software and the more you learn the more productive and stress-free your office will be.
When she is not training, speaking or writing an article, Dayna enjoys spending time in the garden, golfing and hiking in the Rocky Mountains. Dayna is a total foodie and when on the road searches out local restaurants to support the local economy.
“Going chartless” is an often-used and often-misunderstood term in the dental world. Dayna’s expertise will allow practices to see benefits such as automated systems that give team members more time to spend on patient care, integrated electronic services to ensure your patients know your practice is keeping up with the latest technology, making the patient chart more accessible and allowing the clinical team to treatment plan while the front office can be working ahead on payment plans and insurance issues, raising the level of office security to comply with new HIPAA requirements, and much more.
With over 20 years of experience in the business and technical sides of dental offices, Dayna’s passion for efficient systems is grounded in personal understanding and professional expertise. Dayna knows firsthand the problems that occur when collections are down and a schedule is full of holes. She has also lived the frustration of too many hours spent hunting for misplaced patient information and mishandled record keeping.
Since founding Rae Dental Management in 2005, Dayna has brought her integrated combination of training and consulting services to dental practices seeking to bring their systems into the 21st century.
Dayna’s expertise has helped her earn prestigious honors such as…
- Spirit Award for Independent Certified Dentrix Trainers for her loyalty and dedication to the Henry Schein brand
- Teaching Dentrix seminars for Henry Schein throughout the United States
- Authoring the national blog for dental office managers for Dentrix users

With a direct, pragmatic approach, Dayna helps clients develop standardized protocols for:
- Consistency – all team members being on the same page with systematic protocols for collections, continuing care, treatment planning and patient communications
- Efficiency – no more staying late getting caught up on clinical notes and patient documentation
- Security – Guidelines for HIPAA Security Rule and Risk Management helping you become compliant in todays regulations
Today’s Federal guidelines for electronic health records have raised the bar for dental offices, transforming how documentation and information retrieval are structured and managed. Taking the lead to help dental offices easily transition to paperless charting, Dayna has brought her signature “let’s make it easy” touch to her “Dentistry’s Path to Paperless” training programs.
