Many Dentists Have Been Disappointed by Dental Consultants

Dental Consultants Prove Controversial

In our most recent survey, we asked dentists if they have ever had bad experiences with dental consultants – and most of them said “yes.” The majority (62%) indicate they have had problems with consultants in the past. On the other hand, 38% report being smart and/or lucky enough to avoid the bad ones.

Check out some of the comments from our dentists…

  • “I had an out-of-town consultant before; it was not as helpful as a local one.” (New Jersey dentist)
  • “Before you sign, seriously interview the consultant and have a trial period.” (Connecticut dentist)
  • “I had the experience of working with a consultant who knew nothing of accounts receivables, good ratios, etc. He was a podiatrist who decided to become a business consultant on the side. He should have stayed with feet!” (New Jersey dental office worker)
  • “I paid an excessive amount to consultants who almost destroyed my practice. It has taken two years to repair the damage.” (Kentucky dentist)
  • “I got invited to a teaser meeting and returned the next week to experience an aggressive attempt to humiliate me into signing on to an outrageously expensive series of coaching meetings. Not only that, it would eventually involve a religious change.” (Arizona dentist)
  • “I ended up being sued by my staff. I never ever want to go to a dental consultant again.” (Michigan dentist)
  • “One charged $70,000 up-front. Never delivered, made false promises, and basically took the money and ran.” (Arizona dentist)
  • “Most ‘consultants’ want to be practice brokers and not practice builders.” (New York dentist)
  • “I have never seen any profession that so over-charges…” (Texas dentist)
  • “She had the staff in tears at her initial presentation!” (Massachusetts pediatric dentist)
  • “The most recent consultant I had was very negative to my staff and did not return calls.” (North Carolina orthodontist)
  • “It’s the L. Ron Hubbard/Scientology ones that drive me crazy.” (Connecticut dentist)
