‘How Are You Different From Practice Management Companies?’

We get this question all of the time – we hear often from our members on this very topic.  Here’s what Dr. Paul Lawrence from McKinney, Texas had to say…


I have had the opportunity to use a few management companies for my dental practice in the past; Jameson Management and Summit Management(Mike Abernathy).

As you know, I have been with the Brady Group for a short time and I have seen the differences between your company and the others.  One great take away that I have seen so far from the Brady Group is the emphasis on leadership.  Dentists don’t realize that when they own a practice they are, above most other things, leaders.  The other companies I have used have you focus on the business, marketing, and getting on or off PPO insurances. They teach you the “what” and then go into the office and train your staff on the “what”. That is helpful to a point, but if you want to grow as a person and as a business, then you need to have a vision for where you want to be and the ability to make critical business decisions.  Leaders can actually be inspired as they grow their practice and that sometimes doesn’t follow a template pattern. I think that other guys seem to miss that point with all of their efforts.  I really like getting together with the other dentists and talking and discussing with them.  It is so helpful.  It brings together ideas that can really help me with my practice. I love the opportunity to get together with those within the profession who are thinking the way I do and are working hard.  We are a good support for each other.

Also, Amy is a great coach and has been a great resource to meet with as I have made tough business decisions and deal with office challenges.  I can’t wait to learn more and continue to look forward to meetings and getting together.

Just a quick note of thanks for what you have created with the Brady Group and provide for me.
