Linda’s Dental Systems Help Dentist Achieve Milestone in Revenue

“It all started years ago with a wonderful lady named Linda Drevenstedt who put in place a series of systems that made us who we are today. Thank you. Thanks be to God and all his blessings for a very, very successful, New Year and a new hill to climb.”

— Dr. Jim Hudson and team, Rome, GA

“After the first month of [dental] consulting which covered scheduling systems, we saw our monthly production increase an average of 20% …. Hygiene production went up 54% per hygienist… All total, I can attribute at least $85K of our production directly to changes made from having you in our office.”

— Dr. William Brown Jr., Greenville, SC

“When I came in Monday morning, my staff was energized!  Your consultation gave us the ‘shot in the arm’ we needed to take the practice to a new level.  I have had many consultations in my office over the last 25+ years and your consultation was the most beneficial and gave me more ‘bang for my buck’ than any before.  We’ve had our best month ever $109,000+!  That’s a good number for a two-chair doctor with a part-time hygienist in a rural town of one thousand.”

— Dr. Darryl Nabors, Clyde, NC

“Thank you for your support and guidance with my new practice.  Your services are invaluable and worth much more than my investment.  The leadership and staff training have really helped the office to ‘come together’ and I am assured of continued future success.”

— Dr. Fowler, Alabaster (First Year of Practice)

“I wanted to take a minute to express my appreciation for all of your direction over the last year and a half.  There are so many ways you’ve customized our consulting to meet our specific needs.  So here’s a big THANK YOU!  Not only have you helped me developed professionally, but I feel I’ve also matured personally.

— Dr. Myra Stafford, Jasper, AL

Linda Drevenstedt is an intuitive, searching, competent problem solver.  She puts everyone at ease offering good feedback.  She respects others time and schedule, while commanding respect and demanding personal responsibility from staff and doctors alike.”

— Dr. James A Granade, Jr., Tucker, GA

“I recently hired Drevenstedt Consulting. At the time we were having severe cash flow problems. Linda identified three areas of concern, which we addressed. As anyone who has had to make significant changes to their practice knows, there is no magic wand.

It wasn’t easy but Linda was available to us constantly as we pushed through the difficult process. We haven’t finished, but the progress has been remarkable; last month I made $70,000 and the prospect of continued consistent profits is very bright.

Linda does not sugar coat issues and promise easy solutions, there are rarely easy solutions to dental practice problems.  I was very satisfied with Drevenstedt Consulting not only with concise diagnosis but also the guidance we received to solve the problems. I was also very impressed with Linda’s constant availability. I recommend her highly.”

— Edward Molyneaux, D.M.D., West Hartford, Ct.

“Drevenstedt Consulting has made a real difference in our practice. They have improved the fluidity of how the office runs, how we manage our accounting and how our team functions. Our staff definitely works better together as a team and their productivity is up, which improves our bottom line. Linda is phenomenal. She’s very easy to get along with, direct and to the point.”

— Dr. Sara Droker, Ormond Beach, Fl. (Bought an Existing Practice)

“It is my great pleasure to recommend Linda Drevenstedt for your consideration as a dental practice consultant.  She has provided consultation services for my dental practice for nine years, and my practice would not be the success that it is without her assistance.

As is usually the case, my staff members were apprehensive about my bringing in a consultant.  During her first visit, Linda very quickly put them at ease with her down-to-earth approach and gentle humor. 

The monthly telephone conferences have helped immensely as I have wrestled with difficult staffing decisions.  In addition through her visits, and the consulting visits of her associates, new staff members have more easily been integrated into the team.

Although keeping track of the ‘numbers’ is an important part of what Linda does for me and my practice, it is her wisdom, character and insight that is most important to me.

As stated above, my practice would not be nearly as successful as it now is without Linda’s help and direction.

— Dr. James Hoke, MS – Prosthodontist, Durham, NC

“We have had a great year.  I have two associates now, revenues are up 80% since you were here with overhead the same.  We move into our new office next month.  We have been very fortunate.  Thank you for your guidance and direction last year.  I attribute most of our success to the course you set for us.

— Dr. Alan Coleman, Athens, AL

“I give Linda Drevenstedt highest recommendation for dental practice management services.  She came into my office during our first year of practice.  She has impressed me with her abilities not only as a business coach and consultant, but as a personal coach for me to learn to lead my practice to great success.  She is admired and respected by my entire staff.”

— Dr. Karen Armstrong, Jacksonville, NC (After Several Years in Business)

“After the first month of consulting which covered scheduling systems we saw our monthly production increase an average of 20% with only the changes made in our scheduling system.  Hygiene production went up 35% per day per hygienist and this is still an area of growth as we refine our hygiene department.  All total, I can attribute at least $85,000 of our production directly to changes made from having you in our office and we didn’t start the consulting until mid year.  This increase does not come from any fee increase either.”

— Dr. William W. Brown, Jr., Greenville, SC

“We are implementing many of her concepts now.  Through her monitoring we have already shown improvements in production, scheduling, and collections.  Her visit was such a success that we would definitely invite her back.”

— Dr. Joe Miller, Dr. C. Terry Ennis, & Dr. Phil Black, Columbus, GA

You have helped my staff and I grow both our personal and professional visions to reach new goals and dreams.  Thanks again for all your encouragement and challenges to be the best we can be.”

— Dr. John Sieweke, Covington, GA
