Survey: 2 Out of 5 Dentists Using Consultants

Dental Consultants Are a Popular Choice

In this poll, we asked dentists:Is your dental practice currently using a dental management consultant?

Dentists are split on the issue of consultants. Forty-one percent of dentists responded, “Yes, my practice uses a consultant for our marketing and/or practice management.” On the other hand, 59% replied, “No, my practice doesn’t use a consultant.”This data showed some interesting trends. Dentists in more urban areas are less likely to use a consultant. Specialists are also less likely than general dentists to use a consultant in their practices.

Here are some of the comments our dentists had to share:

  • “I have in the past used consultants, but not a one has ever been able to get me more patients.”
  • “The consultant must design the program for me and coach me and my office, not pull something out of a can and say, ‘Here it is, I hope it fits.’ Each practice is different. Both parties (doctor and consultant) must think outside of the box.”
  • “I have tried using consultants, but none came through for me. Most do not understand pediatric dentistry, and it was a waste of money.”
  • “I use a combination of resources, including 2 CPA firms, a continuing education group, and others.”

    I’ve been in Dental Management for 23 years, I’m currently a DA Instructor and my day job is Dental Coaching/Consulting, I do not consider myself a Consultant, as I also had no results with any Consultant experience, so I use the word Coaching, my offices have been very happy with the changes in productivity and Office team mentoring. A good coach will access/ and put a game plan in action and sees it thru.
