I’d love to eventually offer a program in every city in the country.

Productive Dentist Academy (PDA) will be hosting its first-ever regional dental-productivity seminar in Rochester, NY, in 2013, marking the first time the company has taken its seminars to a location outside of its former headquarters in Dallas, Texas. Now located in Washington State, the dental-consulting company has become one of the nation’s fastest-growing small businesses, and was ranked 245th on the Inc. 500/5000 fastest-growing list last year under the health industry category.

“I’d love to eventually offer a program in every city in the country, but this will be the first outside of Texas,” said PDA founder and CEO Dr. Bruce B. Baird, who lives in the Lone Star State. “I’m looking forward to working with a whole new group of docs.”

The first out-of-state venue will take place Feb. 1-2, 2013, in Rochester, NY, he said. Attendance is limited so early enrollment is encouraged. Its curriculum will focus on assisting dentists at improving their business analytics, marketing, team building, and communication. He and other organizers hope to eventually hold similar dental-productivity seminars in other locations throughout the United States.

“We’ve been humbled and amazed at the early response,” added managing partner and COO Vicki McManus, who has watched the dental-consulting business grow by leaps and bounds in recent years. “Our dramatic growth over the last few years is on the back of over 30 years of experience. Dentistry is a very unique business, but success begins and ends with taking amazing care of patients.”
