Unlike many dental consulting firms, our minimum requirements for analysts and consultants are a bachelor’s degree, multiple years of dental office experience and a demonstrated commitment to patient health. APC analysts and consultants have mastered a rigorous training program, and as their knowledge and experience increase, they are gradually trained in additional specialties and more complex situations.
Our staff consists of employees, not independent contractors. This ensures that no matter where you are located in the United States or Canada, you will receive the highest quality APC experience.
