Our rapid growth is a result of innovation and risk taking.

For the second year in a row Productive Dentist Academy (Academy), a dental-marketing and dental-consulting company based in Washington State, has secured a prestigious spot on Inc. Magazine’s 500|5000 list for fastest-growing companies in the United States.

“Our rapid growth is a result of innovation and risk taking,” says founder Dr. Bruce B. Baird. “We have long felt that traditional consulting based solely on the expertise of one person is an outdated model. In my own dental practice, I have utilized many consultants over the years. We knew that the marketplace had shifted and dentists needed a team of experts, not just the opinion of one person.”

In addition to expanding this highly trained, diverse pool of dental-related business consultants, the Academy’s fast growth and success is the result of expanding it’s robust design agency. The Academy’s Marketing Services Group applies deep analytics to create comprehensive marketing plans based on practice budget and expected ROI.

As a result, the company has experienced an astonishing 99 percent growth in the last three years and increased its revenues from $1.7 million to $3.3 million. It has also increased its number of employees from nine to 25. All of this has placed it firmly on the Inc. list of fastest-growing companies at position 3,256.

“We are unique within dentistry.” said Vicki McManus, COO and partner. “Most dental consultants make recommendations and then outsource to various vendors to help their clients succeed. Our design team gives us complete oversight with websites, online advertising, direct mailers, etc; we are then able to better integrate these activities within the business and team.”

The Academy will receive its award at the Inc. 500|5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony in National Harbor, Maryland, Oct. 10-12.
