The Queens Recognize Queens campaign honors the hustle, confidence and independent spirit of businesswomen in Texas. This inaugural initiative powered by Urban One Digital, featured an interactive promotion utilizing both on-air support and social media as well as a VIP suite experience at the Oprah 2020 Vision Tour.
Katherine Bishop is co-founder of Dental Dimensions with Dr. Brian Bishop, her husband of 17 years, and a mom of three children.
She met her husband in 2001 on the day he got accepted into dental school and was married seven months later just as he started dental school. She worked two jobs while he attended school and upon graduation, she quit those jobs to raise their first daughter that was born just two months later. Katherine has most recently re-entered the workforce by helping to run a local Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school which has helped her learn what was needed to open and run their future dental office.
While working at the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school she also was a lead teacher for a Pre-K 4 class at Bethany CDC. She has since stepped away from the Jiu Jitsu school in order to focus on Dental Dimensions, but still works two days a week at the preschool; it is truly a love of hers and hard for her to say goodbye to the children and families.
MEET THIS QUEEN
Besides Oprah, name another Queen who inspires you personally and/or professionally? Sarah Wilson, owner of Sarah Briggs jewelry, inspires me. I have watched her make the decision to pursue her dream of becoming a jewelry designer, walk into local stores with a photo album of her jewelry and eventually having celebrities wear her pieces. I have watched her succeed and fail. I have seen how strong and guided she is through it all. She is so brilliant in how she runs her company and designs her prices. She doesn’t compromise and along the way, she uplifts others and helps them succeed. She has built an amazing community of women who care and give encouragement; all brought together by her jewelry!
What long-term impact would you like your business to ultimately have? What is your big vision? I want our dental office to be a place for my community. To have an impact on the schools that surround us. To uplift and care for those in need. To be a presence in the Lake Highlands neighborhood. We are a family and we want our staff to be an extension of that; to extend that love to our patients and get to know them and welcome them.
What can we as the community do to support that vision? Support us and let us know where the needs are; share our office vision.
What’s next for Dental Dimensions? We are just starting out. We want to continue to grow so that we have the ability to give to schools and our community without hesitation.
