After realizing that buying a dental practice that would fit all of my ideals would be impossible, I determined that I needed to open my own practice and build from the ground up. Having a degree in dentistry and not in business, I knew it would be a challenge for me. I had no idea where to even start. After some research online and through my dental colleagues, I found McKenzie Management. They were offering exactly what I was looking for as far as guidance on how to start building a practice. This included providing and choosing contacts for all the auxiliary needs from getting the bank loan, finding a space with a realtor, to getting a builder, lawyer, CPA, etc. all with dental experience. I felt comfort in all the experience the McKenzie Management team had in going through this process and they really helped me feel like this was something I could accomplish. My consultants were able to really break things down for me in a way that is simple and easy to understand. And, they were always readily available either by email or phone call to answer any questions that I or my staff encountered.
