NEW DENTIST Consulting Program

Start your business on the right foot.

Get Started

Classic Practice’s New Dentist Program is customized for new dentists who have been practicing less than 6 years and producing less than $600,000 annually.

This 6-month program is broken down into two phases, and it is designed to help new dental professionals beginning their own practice. We understand the complications of venturing on your own, and we show you how to establish systems in place to help you operate your business, turn a profit and reduce overall stress.

This is program is 16 CE Hours.

Testimonials from some of our program participants:

Phase 1

The first step of the Classic Practice Program is to gather information specific
to your practice, and get you started on projects that will help build a strong
foundation for system implementation. These projects start you on the road to
a more productive and organized office.

Phase 2

The next phase of your program is live interactive training courses done both virtually and in person in Baton Rouge with you and up to three team members. These four courses teach effective practice management systems and are scheduled in a specific sequence over an eight-week period. They are designed to jump start your program and provide team training. The Boot Camp courses are an interesting and informative training experience, followed up by a visit to your practice by your consultant.
