In 2018, after six years in dental marketing and almost ten years in advertising, Nicole Toudouze began a small, one-woman dental marketing consulting business at a desk in the corner of her kids’ play room in San Antonio. Transcendental was born out of a vision and purpose-filled mission to help dentists find success. Two years later, Lisa Contreras came on board to support the rapid increase of practices they were supporting and shortly after in January of 2021, Transcendental, a true partner in growth was formally founded. Lisa and Nicole decided it was time to create a marketing agency that could genuinely meet the needs of dentists and pioneer a new standard of dental marketing. Since being founded in 2021, Transcendental has grown from 9 to 24 practices and is serving clients in ten states. For the last four years, we have been helping dentists transcend dental norms through evidence-based, results-driven marketing strategies and curated brand stories.
Our Brand Promises:
We are a group passionate about helping dentists achieve their goals. We are also passionate about relationships. You will see this through our relationship-based service with our clients, our tight-knit, family-like team and our commitment to our families and our communities. We believe that in order to do good works professionally, one has to be whole personally, which is why we support our clients and employees by promoting a healthy work-life balance. This includes a lot of team building activities and events, both internally and with our clients. It also includes unlimited PTO for our team that works so hard to help others, flex work hours and locations, collaborative teamwork daily, and family-first mentality.
Our Internal Mission
As a company created by mothers with young children, one of our founding principles is empowering women who are passionate about both their careers and motherhood. Our dream is to create a workplace home for women with children who won’t be racked with guilt daily or forced to choose between their work passions and their family. Where these two important elements of life can co-exist and females can thrive in all of their roles. We believe employee productivity is measured by dedication to doing the right thing, not time spent in the office chair and that employer success is measured by leaders who provide a supportive and flexible environment for their team members to excel in all areas of life. Happy and healthy employees will always result in a growing and successful organization.
