“We have been working with Brad Larsen since December of 2009. When we started working with him we had come out of a computer crash that affected every aspect of our business. Honestly, we did not even know how huge the extent of it was until we hired a business manager per Brad’s suggestions and with her help evaluated the situation.
He helped us with every step to figure out what the problem was and how to deal with it. He was always available by phone and in our office when requested. He even made the staff comfortable talking with him and voicing their concerns.
His recommendations were easy to put into place. A couple examples of what we applied to our practice right away was graphing everyone’s performance in different areas so our staff could evaluate their productivity. We also started bonus programs to motivate everyone to contribute their best. Since last year, our overall handling of patient accounts, productions and collections have improved greatly and we have set a new system in place that helps us work more efficiently.
I truly appreciate everything he has done for us and I highly recommend Dr. Larsen’s consulting firm to anyone who is looking to advance their practice.”
“I work for O’Brien Dental Lab, and over the years we have worked with Dr. Larsen and his team. It became apparent that he had one of the best run practices we had come across. From the standpoint of our dental lab, we could see the difference of his quality dental work. But also from the volume of cosmetic and restorative business he was doing, I could see that he had a successful practice as well.
Across the board, from personnel to finances to volume, really every aspect, he ran a practice that was run unlike most. Even though he moved into this small town area by himself and started his practice from the ground up and navigated a crushed economy following a natural disaster, he was still able to create this phenomenal practice.
For all of these reasons, I have every confidence in recommending Dr. Larsen to other dentists.
After Dr. Larsen achieved his MBA, we were privileged to have him to lecture for our group as a guest speaker. Each time we invited Dr. Larsen back, he is always well received. He provides very, very useful information when he lectures and I’ve personally seen how he’s able to put people in the room at ease immediately. The audience is also very responsive to his approach and information, often asking many questions during his presentations. They leave excited because what they’ve heard is what they can take back to their practice the next day and start benefiting from right away.
In addition to having him lecture as a guest speaker, Dr. Larsen agreed to work one-on-one with several dentists I was working with. From a personal observation, I have seen that sometimes consultants will tell the dental practice how they should do their dentistry, and if they follow that philosophy, they can succeed. What makes working with Dr. Brad Larsen so different is that he talks to each dentist about what you want to do, and about your own philosophy, then he helps you determine how to achieve that vision. He also is excellent at creating a competitive advantage for dentists, and helping them to stand out in a challenging market.
I’ve also seen firsthand how Dr. Larsen has been able to help clients succeed during this difficult economy. Recently, he was able to help a dentist have the best month she’s ever had in 10 years, despite most companies having a decline in 2009. From business systems, to staff, to moving to a new office, to helping her balance her work hours and family life while still being more productive, this dentist is very pleased with her results. She also felt that he helped her put together the best staff she’s ever had.
Dr. Larsen has been down every road, so to speak, for a dentist. That includes having a successful partnering and practice transition himself, even allowing him to continue practicing dentistry. I know that from talking to many dentists firsthand that when you are the owner of your own dental practice, there aren’t many people you can talk to who understand the challenges you are going through, of owning your own business, managing a team. For dentists, Dr. Larsen really fulfills this need in dentistry, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to get that competitive edge and get the most out of their practice!”
“Brad has been instrumental in helping me establish busines systems, oversee a relocation, orchestrate harmonious staff relations and enjoy a greater peace of mind about the productivity and profitability of my practice. I am very appreciative of the invaluable help that Brad has invested into my practice and am enjoying the benefits daily.”
