It's always amazed me how dentists go through school without any required business courses. Yet, when they graduate, the expectation of the doctor is to start a small business and market potential patients. The end result can be disastrous without proper guidance.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 11, 2009
Phoenix based Rushmore Dental Consulting LLC has received funding commitments from private equity investors to fulfill initial operating expenses. The company plans for rapid growth in their business services division, offering unique consulting and practice-building services to fee-for-service dental practices, dental schools and dental laboratories.
Rushmore Dental Consulting Founder and Managing Partner, Christopher Stratton, is a twelve year dental industry veteran that has performed in numerous sales management and business development roles with dental companies during his career, primarily in dental implants and emerging dental technologies. With Rushmore Dental Consulting, Mr. Stratton intends to bring pragmatic and affordable business solutions to an underserved segment of the dental industry.
"For years dental companies have marketed practice building programs," Stratton said. "However, many of these programs are packaged and sold with primarily the interests of the company in mind, leaving the dentist holding the bill for massive product inventories that may never be used. Rushmore Dental Consulting will be an objective partner that can assist dentists in identifying the best companies to partner with in order to meet practice specific business and clinical objectives."
Veteran dental practice consultant Jo Ann Pulver, Owner of Chicago based The Sapphire Group, welcomes Rushmore Dental Consulting as a strategic partner. "Mr. Stratton is a brilliant business partner who brings a great dynamic to any team. He possesses a formidable sense of integrity, is diligent and he's sincerely committed to energizing the business of dentistry in a challenging economy. Beyond his work ethic is a person who easily focuses on the task or project at hand, never letting go of his wonderful, friendly personality. We are all very fortunate to have Mr. Stratton join us in the endeavor of creating productive and successful work environments in the dental industry."
Rushmore Dental Consulting will also offer bundled business consulting packages for recent dental school graduates, through its ongoing partnerships with top dental universities throughout the United States.
Mr. Stratton said, "It's always amazed me how dentists go through school without any required business courses. Yet, when they graduate, the expectation of the doctor is to start a small business and market potential patients. The end result can be disastrous without proper guidance."
Rushmore Dental Consulting plans to offer dental practice staff training modules through speaking engagements to dental study clubs and dental schools, featuring a dynamic and entertaining roster of dental industry speakers. "Our plan is to shake things up in the dental business world," Stratton said. "And along the way we're going to have a lot of fun."
