The Nation's Leading Business Development Courses for Dentists
PDA | Education Seminars and Workshops are the foundation of everything we do, and where we established our roots as a company in 2004. Our Founders are dentists and practice owners themselves. Together they saw a need to collaborate with like-minded doctors in an open environment.
What began as a few doctors sitting around a table to learn how to become more productive quickly grew into the nation’s leading Continuing Education courses for doctors, teams and specialists to collaborate and learn tried and true growth strategies from our team of experts and our PDA Graduates.
In order to bring our event attendees the best experience possible, we request that any cancellation be requested more than 30 days prior to the event. Should the need to cancel within 30 days of an event, our educational coordinator will help you transfer your attendance date to our next available event. No refund will be given if the cancellation is made within 30 days of the event. Any cancellation made before 30 days prior to an event will incur a 5% credit card cancellation fee.
Unlock the power of your potential.
Dr. Bruce B. Baird and multi-practice owner Vicki McManus Peterson founded PDA with one simple goal – to help doctors take better care of themselves, their team, and their patients. We’ve helped thousands of dentists across the country do just that while increasing productivity and minimizing stress. While the doctor is a key player, the success of a practice depends on the entire team working together. PDA | Seminars are full-immersion events open to doctors, hygienists, assistants, administrative teams, and specialists with breakout sessions for each department.

Our award-winning Productivity Workshop is the nation’s leading dental Continuing Education course in Business Management for dentists. 2.5 days of in-depth learning and collaboration helps doctors and teams improve clinical excellence, refine current systems, schedule to productivity, and learn how to effectively market and grow your practice.
Team Breakout Sessions for Hygiene, Assisting, and Administrative teams allow us to dig deeper into the issues of each department to bring all the moving parts together and allow your entire team to get on board toward achieving your goals.
If you and your team could benefit from a more intimate, more personalized workshop setting and are wondering if PDA holds private events, the answer is YES! If you are a multi-practice dentist looking to get all your teams on board, a dental specialist looking to improve relationships with referring doctors, or have a network of regional doctors you think could benefit from a PDA Workshop, we would love to host a Private or Regional Event in your area. Private events can be custom-tailored to fit the needs of your group, from a single day workshop to a full 2.5 day event.
We offer free online webinars to help arm dentists and their teams with the knowledge and information they need to make informed decisions and win in the dental industry. From business best practices to financial advice, leadership and teamwork instruction, and hygiene practices, to crash courses on marketing topics such as pay-per-click and ROI reporting, PDA webinars offer helpful material and instruction on a wide range of topics.
At PDA, 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 doctors see within 8 weeks of attending our Productivity Workshop.
"I love attending PDA workshops. I felt like Dr. Baird was speaking directly to me and the things that have been weighing on me. I actually had tears in my eyes a couple of times as he described some of his past professional struggles – because it’s what I’m trying to grow past right now. Thanks Susan and Vicki for the help and advice. Thanks for an incredible learning experienced!"
"I started at $600/hour and I am now at $2600 personally and $3000+ as an office (3 Hygienists). I work 3 days per week and 7 hours per day, 45 weeks per year. We hover around $3M as a solo practice. I'm telling you this to encourage you to continue changing struggling dentists’ lives. You and your team have opened our lives to what's possible, which is anything we set goals for. Thank You Again and Again."
"It's been a long time since I've been this excited. My team really sees the difference. We’ve gone from $240 – $440 in just two weeks! Think about how great this will be when I bring the team back. Thanks Bruce!"
