Productive Dentist Academy introduces investment grade practices to dentistry

Productive Dentist Academy (PDA), the nation’s leading dental business consulting and marketing firm, recently announced its new strategic initiative – Investment Grade Practices (IGP) – which teaches independent dental practices how to create maximum value in their practices. so that they can maintain their current lifestyle in retirement.

“According to the American Dental Association, 95-96% of dentists cannot retire and maintain their lifestyle. It doesn’t have to be that way,” says Dr. Victoria Peterson, co-founder and CEO of PDA. “Investment Grade practices allow the owner and team to enjoy personal freedom today while creating assets and value for tomorrow. IGP™ practices are founded on the principles of patient and team first, putting people and relationships before anything else.”

IGP practices teach how to successfully optimize revenue potential, create predictable year-over-year growth, balance debt, build systems sustainability, and structure for continued success. What distinguishes IGP firms from others comes down to two important criteria: profits and professional satisfaction.

“Establishing an Investment Grade practice requires the willingness to allow yourself to dream big and the discipline to invest in yourself and your team to bring the dream to life,” says Dr. Peterson. “Implementing the IGP principles brings peace of mind to the practice owner, transforms the team into patient advocates, creates unparalleled patient experiences, creates an excellent team culture and competitive compensation, prepares the practice to be sold at any time for the best price, and creates continuity and profit after a sale.

Coinciding with the launch of the IGP, Productive Dentist Academy announced its IGP Summit, to be held September 22-24, 2022 in Frisco, TX alongside the PDA Productivity Workshop. The IGP team of business advisors and coaches will be on hand to support annual business planning, goal planning and marketing strategies. Special breakout sessions will help elevate dental practice managers to business leaders, and marketing coordinators will be fully prepared to deliver dental practice messages to the marketplace.
