Most dentists never learn how to run a business effectively. Sadly, that can make the day-to-day work of owning a practice so frustrating that the dentist no longer enjoys his or her life’s work.
Some consultants promise to solve the problem with a seminar or two or a one-size-fits-all prescription. APC is different.
Our unique, hands-on assessment and consulting process is delivered with unparalleled personal attention, expertise and integrity. APC provides custom designed systems, processes and training to:
By renewing their passion, optimizing profits and reducing their stress, clients tell us that APC helped them fall in love with dentistry all over again.
Patients’ health is important to you. It’s just as important to us. It’s the cornerstone of our business. We know, because we have experienced it time and time again, that when patients’ health is optimized, it’s a win for the patient, the practice, the staff and the dentist. It just doesn’t get any better than that.
We’ve been called the best kept secret in dentistry. That’s because we never desired to be the biggest or most famous; just to make the biggest difference in the lives of our clients and the patients they serve. Providing dental care is a personal, individualized experience; we believe consulting dental professionals should be just as personal and individualized. That’s why our Practice Analyst spends three to five days in your office getting to know you, your values, frustrations and desires. Then after listening, observing, interviewing, assessing, analyzing, compiling information and discussing your practice and desires with APC’s founders, our analyst prepares a report of their findings. The findings are then presented to you, along with a proposal for our services, in a very enlightening discussion.
That’s personal attention. And we do all that for just reimbursement of our travel expenses.
Our staff is a key part of the APC difference.
Our ethics demand total objectivity and transparency. We have never paid for a client referral, nor have we ever been paid for an endorsement from a vendor or service. We believe you need to know that our objectivity and recommendations are not up for sale, and never will be.
This objectivity extends to your practice as well. You can be assured we will be totally honest in our assessment of your practice, your opportunities, and in responding to your questions, even when we know you may want to hear something different. We take pride in being sensitive, caring, objective and honest. We believe you deserve that and more.
The APC Practice Analysis will span three to five days on site and encompasses analysis of your financial and statistical data, including production, overhead and profit, interviews with doctors and staff, investigation of all office and marketing systems, assessment of patient behavioral processes, observation of the doctors and staff in action and much more.
Our no-obligation Practice Analysis will uncover challenges and opportunities, with little to no disruption to your schedule. This in-depth analysis comes with no obligation and at no cost to you, except for our analyst’s travel expenses.
On the final day of your in office Practice Analysis, our analyst will present you with a comprehensive report of all of our findings, including practice strengths, existing challenges and barriers, opportunities, and a strategy and personalized APC proposal to guide you and your team to more success and the practice – and life – you desire.
Upon accepting your APC treatment plan, we will train you and your team in our proven strategies and systems over the course of several weeks or months, in your office, with your equipment, your staff and with your patients. We will introduce and train your staff in post consultation tracking tools for you, and APC, to review and help keep you on track.
Unlike most consultants, we provide complimentary ongoing support as part of our continuing commitment to you. Once you say ‘yes’ to your APC customized plan, you have the full force and commitment of our APC team of professionals at your fingertips to help you achieve the practice of your dreams.

“Things are happening fast. Production up. Collections up. Everything is good. I owe a lot to APC. Thanks for all you did to help a tired…no…exhausted old dentist.”
“My APC systems have outlasted my equipment.”
“The practice is like night and day compared to what it used to be! You went above and beyond to ensure my success. This consultation exceeded my expectations.”
“One of the things that made practicing so enjoyable is being efficient. And without APC coming and helping me discover a very efficient way to make maximum utilization of my time, I would have been lost.”
“APC has done such an outstanding job for me! I want others to have this too.”

“APC is the ‘Pankey’ of dental consulting.”
“I’ve been a Seattle Study Club member for 18 years and in my mind I thought I was a comprehensive treatment planner. They actually taught me a much more effective way to present comprehensive treatment. The methodology they taught me is quite effective. That, in and of itself, was worth the financial investment.”
“APC really got to know us first and really customized services to our practice. Our staff is very excited and feels empowered. There’s a whole new energy in our office.”
“WOW! You have done an amazing job with this extremely difficult practice. Congratulations to you on an incredible gain for these guys. It’s one thing to add $100,000 to 200,000 per year, but to show an $800,000 gain in 6 months. Wow!”
