Story
Tagline
Dental Performance Institute specializes in Operations Analysis, New Start-Up Practices, DSO and/or DPM Infrastructure, Executive and Team Coaching, & Module Implementation
Introduction
Founder of Dental Performance Institute located in Chicago, IL.
www.DentalPerformanceInstitute.com

Working hands-on in the dental industry and multiple practice environments (single or multiple location setting, Fee For Service and/or Insurance Driven, DPM's, DSO's, and Medicaid practice model - GP and/or Specialty) for twenty-eight years has given me solid understanding as to the headaches, pressures, and challenges each dental business owner(s), dental company, and/or executive team face when it comes to operating and managing dental business operations, financials, standardization of operations, and team dynamics.

Dental Performance Institute continues to partner with Dentists, Dental Specialists, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon (OMS) practitioners (existing and start-ups), Dental Practice Management Administrative Companies (DPM), Dental Service Organizations (DSO) and Medicaid model entities to assist in standardizing and improving operations and system modules, implementation of proper logistics, evaluation of specialty referral base(s) for growth, strengthening team dynamics, and *employment compliance to include *HR management to elevate profitability, efficiency, and overall practice performance.

MISSION: Collaborate with clients and strategic partners locally, regionally, and nationally to turn challenges and issues into opportunity while continually achieving increased profitability and a smooth operating practice / business within a stress free environment.

We focus on working with dental clients Locally, Regionally, and Nationally.
