Investment Grade Practice™ News – December 2022

Dr. Maggie Augustyn hated her life.

Working at her dental practice was a daily drag, and she was burned out. She had a difficult time being around her team, her patients, and even her own family.

Then she met PDA, and discovered there’s a better way.

After attending a Productivity Workshop and joining PDA coaching, her productivity has increased month-over-month, and patients are served better than ever before.

You can watch Dr. Augustyn’s full story here to learn why it’s important to be met where you are at, and how PDA helped springboard this doctor’s life into the bright future she deserves.
