Investment Grade Practice™ News – March 2023

Record-Breaking Number of Dentists Unlock Their Full Potential

PDA Productivity Workshop Guarantees Attendee Growth

“PDA is amazing!  They’ve helped my practice grow so much.” – Dr. Anthony Baird

This month hundreds of dentists and teams gathered in Westlake, Texas, for a full-immersion program designed to raise productivity and decrease stress in the practice.

“One of the biggest myths in dentistry is the belief that in order to be more productive, you have to raise your fees, work longer hours chairside, and serve more patients than ever before,” explains PDA co-founder Dr. Bruce B. Baird.

“We teach doctors and teams how to work smarter, not harder.”

In its nineteenth year, PDA’s productivity workshop is widely regarded as the number one course for dental practice growth in the nation.

This AGD-accredited course reviews:

  • How to schedule to productivity, not time
  • Ways to become a better patient advocate through comprehensive diagnosis
  • Aligning your team to your vision of success
  • How to get (and measure) ROI for your marketing efforts
  • Effective ways to integrate new technology and services

The workshop is designed for both dentists and teams.

“I did not expect to enjoy a dental workshop as much as I did at PDA. PDA team members made me feel like they knew me for years. They really took time to get to know me and our office. I look forward to sharing more time with them as they help to take our office to another level. Thanks PDA!!!” – Lena Swann

There is only one Productivity Workshop left in 2023, and space is limited.

Register for the September 28-30 workshop and receive a wealth of valuable resources, including:

  • Attendance at the Workshop
  • Signed copy of Legendary Leadership: How Ordinary People Become Uncommon Leaders by Dr. Bruce B. Baird
  • A 90-minute session with a PDA Business Advisor

Things To Look For When Seeking A Practice Consultant

Dr. Victoria Peterson
Dr. Victoria Peterson

You know you want to optimize your practice so you can enjoy more of life, but you might not be sure where to start.

Productive Dentist Academy Co-founder & CEO Dr. Victoria Peterson shares how to evaluate dental practice management consultants.

Some of Dr. Peterson’s tips include:

  • Verification of the consultant’s credentials – learn what they’ve learned and how they learned it.
  • Talk to the consultant’s current clients to find out what’s worked (and what hasn’t) for them.
  • Make sure you’re solving a problem that’s $300,000 in value.
  • Ensure zero codependency – that the consultant doesn’t hold anything back, including solutions.

Building an Investment Grade Practice™ can move you from the often chaotic stage of a viable practice into predictability and comfort so you can create a durable business that can function smoothly – even when you aren’t there.

A great dental consultant who knows what they know (and also knows what they don’t know) can get you there.

Schedule a conversation with Brent, PDA Client Success Manager, to find out how a great consultant can take you to heights you’ve never dreamed of.
