What our clients say…

“I am so grateful a friend recommended that I talk to Dan Peters. My life has changed since we have worked together. My practice is thriving, which has enhanced my practice finances and my personal finances. The amazing thing here is that it was so easy. Working with Dan was a breeze for my staff and I, and the initial changes we made had dramatic results. Over time we implemented more changes, changes that brought my new patients per month from an average of 9 to 36. Production increased significantly within 2 months.

Because Dan is a dentist, he had instant credibility with my staff. He has been in the trenches of everyday dentistry and understands the daily challenges we face. He encouraged and supported my clinical and business skills and helped build up my confidence in both areas. I highly recommend Dan to all of my colleagues and consider him my lifetime mentor and friend!” – Nicole Paxson
