1. 57% higher

    Before coming to Vanguard, our practice was stuck at a level where we were surviving, but not growing, and there was no surplus with which to improve the practice or incentivize the staff. In fact, we were steadily declining. Our new patients numbers were not in a good range, but even when we would see more of them, our production and collections did not improve. Our treatment acceptance was large…Read More

  2. This was the single thing that turned my practice around…

    I’m Dr. Stephen Huber. A few years ago, my practice was incredibly stressful. I could barely cover the bills. I was seeing maybe 8 new patients per month, and things were just getting more and more expensive. I spent years trying different marketing and consulting programs. And after all that time we never grew. Nothing changed! The stress was really tough to deal with, and things were lookin…Read More

  3. The marketing definitely changed the type of patients we brought in

    When you’re producing about $16,000 per month and not seeing even a hint of growth, you know you are going nowhere. That’s where I was. I had bounced around, attending seminars and events all over the country, looking for an answer. My staff was a mess, I had nobody I could rely on, and the stress and bills were piling up higher and higher. I’m not in a wealthy neighborhood, and over the yea…Read More

  4. You’ll end up with real answers that work.

    I bought an existing practice, knew where I wanted to go and didn't want to waste any time getting there. Yet there I was, a few months into it, just covering my expenses, but not having the experience or answers to take it to the next level. I was getting new patients, but they didn't seem to be "the right type". My hours were long because I was still working part time as an associate, and with a…Read More

  5. I promise it will be well worth your time!

    Some time ago, I had reached a point in my career where my practice was in shambles. My production and collections were down 30% - 40%. I had no reliable administrative staff and was having to run the whole office myself. My new patient numbers were dismal. And I could barely pay myself. As a single mom and the sole supporter of my three kids, this was completely unacceptable. Over a period of a f…Read More

  6. You will get the answers you need, as we did.

    We used to have what we considered a mediocre dental practice. We were doing “just OK”…Production and collections were plateaued, and we didn’t know how to grow the practice in a controlled, organized way. Our financial obligations seemed huge. We had personal and business debts and three small children to take care of. We were frustrated and stressed, and we didn’t know what to do about…Read More

  7. Within six months of starting their program, my new patients had tripled…

    “About four years ago, I was contacted by a practice consulting company. I had responded to a postcard mailer they had sent me. At the time, I was just in the process of starting up a new practice, and I did not feel I was ‘ready’ for a consultant. One and a half years later, I was still in a ‘new practice’ mode. In other words, I was not achieving even close to my potential for new pati…Read More

  8. Needless to say, the stress I once had is virtually gone…

    “Before I came to Vanguard Dental Management and started working with Judy Marcus, I was undecided about which consulting company I should go to. I had already experienced some of them, but my practice problems had not been resolved. I had two associates, my staff situation was out of control, and I was not making any income from my practice. I spoke to them…and what they said seemed to make a…Read More

  9. I am finally enjoying dentistry, reaping the rewards, and have begun building a satellite practice…

    “A year ago, I received an ad in the mail about a company who could get me more new patients without signing onto some HMO or PPO, so I sent in the response card.  Soon I received a call from Judy Marcus at Vanguard Dental Management. When I realized that this was their way to introduce their practice improvement program, I thought ‘Oh no!!!! Not another one of those seminars that promise the…Read More

  10. New Practice – Six weeks into the program, my practice went up 50% in production and collections…

    “When I first contacted Judy Marcus, I was in the middle of selling my 4 operatory sole-practitioner practice and buying into a 12 operatory, multi-provider facility. I was very concerned about starting off the right way in my new practice, as I knew that the decisions I was making would greatly affect my future, both professionally and financially. Right from the start, the advice I received fr…Read More
