Improve leadership skills, optimize your systems, and empower your team.
Whether you're a seasoned vet or new to the industry, chances are you’ve attended dental seminars aimed at helping you improve your practice. Have you ever returned home feeling like you’ve just tried to drink from a fire hose, and you’re not sure where to start? If so, that’s a common experience, and one of the reasons dental business development coaches are key to helping you keep a thriving, healthy practice.
Dr. Bruce B. Baird, one of America’s most productive dentists, did not achieve success without a coach. Why? Because as dentists, we cannot achieve success alone. In any industry, on every part of the globe, prosperity is derived from working together. By improving your leadership skills, optimizing your systems, and empowering your team, you will refine every level of your dental practice.
Unique challenges deserve unique solutions.
Unlike other dental consulting companies that try and fit your practice into their cookie-cutter model, PDA carefully evaluates the Core 6 areas of your practice to use as a roadmap to create a custom-tailored plan just for you. We leave systems in place that are working, revise or optimize if necessary, and implement new systems for ones that are broken.
Your personal Business Development Coach and our network of industry experts in Marketing, Hygiene, Administration and Assisting can help you and your team refine the Core 6 areas of your practice through a combination of in-office training, monthly video-conferences, and online learning.
“Dentistry became my passion at an early age of 15. I have worn many hats in dentistry including: assistant, hygienist, office manager, dental software trainer, dental software sales and installation, VP of Operations for Neighborhood Smiles small group, and Productive Dentist Academy Business Development Coach. I can never get enough of all things dentistry!”
“I enjoy helping our clients create their personal definition of success and then helping them achieve that!”

Other dental practice consulting companies charge upwards of $2,000 for similar assessments, but that’s just not the PDA way. We’ll take a look under the hood, run a diagnostic, and identify the areas of your practice that could use improvement – no catch included.
At PDA, we don’t just talk the talk. We've helped thousands of doctors significantly increase their hourly production, while improving systems and scheduling efficiency, thus minimizing anxiety and stress. The following stats show the average production increase our Coaching clients see within the first year.
"As a Seattle Study Club of Rochester member with 28 years of dental practice experience, I attended the PDA 3 day classes and believed that I had a firm grasp on the comprehensive treatment planning aspect of each case from SSC training. I thought the PDA concept of scheduling was simple enough that I could come back to the office and implement immediately by myself. I was wrong and after 6 months of struggling to train staff I attending my second PDA 3 day workshop and hired our coach. This has been the best decision we have made in years. With our coach Susan Leckowicz she has met and coached the staff, doctors and explained clearly to them what we were trying to accomplish and if certain goals were met there would be a reward for them. We are in our 6th month with Susan and my production has risen over 80% however more importantly our bottom line has improved over 45% year over year, our income stream has been steady without huge fluctuations even with Doctor vacations and best of all everybody’s levels of stress have dropped significantly. We cannot wait to see what the next 6 months will bring with PDA’s help in advertising and personal finances. The key is buying into the program not just dip the toes in the water and as doctors we have to believe it and live it and the rewards will be great."
"I felt I was taking good care of my patients and employees, but I’d hit the ceiling and just couldn’t get past it. Now that I have a PDA coach, I love having someone I can talk to about what are normal and realistic expectations of my team, and they know that there’s someone they can talk to as well. Coaching has also allowed me to become a better, stronger leader, which really is life changing."
"It was getting frustrating doing the same thing every year and not growing. With PDA, you’re going to be able to do what I did, and it wasn’t that hard being able to double my practice by doing what PDA teaches. The great thing about PDA is that there are so many resources that they have available. One of the most exciting things that we’ve done with the Marketing Group is a patient appreciation program. That has actually doubled my new patients just by doing that program. Thank you PDA!"
"Having someone on your side who is as dedicated to your success as you are is unbelievable. With PDA, not only do I have Patti as my head coach keeping me accountable, I have the full resources of the PDA team of specialty coaches. Thanks Vicki and Bruce for putting together such a comprehensive coaching program. I’m now confident in my abilities to market my practice, lead my team, and enjoy my life outside the practice."
"PDA's coaching program is like playing in a championship game that you know you’ve already won. Now at any given time I know right where I stand in the business and I’m not guessing anymore. Angela helped the team implement systems that make reaching our goals much less stressful and help us succeed on a daily basis. The systems we use allow us to concentrate on building relationships with the patients and having fun every day."
"I have been working with Productive Dentist Academy for over a year now. They have helped me fine-tune my practice and have improved our work environment. Our coach provides us with intelligent and sensible steps to take as a team to achieve our desired changes. We are committed to developing stronger relationships with our referring offices, which in turn helps us treat our patients with the best care possible. Our team growth has also contributed to an increase in our production, collections, and has helped to fill our schedule. PDA has been a true asset and Bren's insight is exceptional."
