Acquisition Program

For dentists looking for guidance during the acquisition process

Even though the purchase of a practice offers exciting changes, this period can be exhausting and quite cumbersome to navigate successfully. Dentists and their teams must juggle their everyday activities alongside the process of the acquisition as well. In almost every case, neither the selling dentist or purchasing dentist have experienced this process before. Gene St. Louis Consulting guides you every step of the way ensuring you understand how to optimize success.

Both staff and patient retention are critical elements especially during the first year or two after the purchase. We have provided the roadmap for hundreds of dentists and their teams. You can count on our expertise to make sure your acquisition is a seamless journey. We will not overwhelm the existing team by creating a whirlwind of change. Working in harmony, we teach teams the skills they need to help you take the existing practice from good to great while still achieving your vision for the practice.


Patient Advocacy | We develop patient advocate roles with all team members to support your patient’s relationships and increase their appreciation of your work

Communication Skills | We coach your team to enhance their communication skills and understanding of the patient experience to create recognized effectiveness in your practice systems.

SWOT | We evaluate and analyze each area of the business systems used by the practice by engaging the SWOT rule: Strengths, Weaknesses Opportunities and Treats

Action Plan | Measurement, accountability, and implementation of the action plan is an essential part of our program.

Here’s the issue: We work hard, we treat our patients with the utmost care, and we can’t seem to get where we need to be financially. Too much debt, not enough new patients. This is where a guiding coach comes into play. “But why can’t I do this by myself?” Look, even great athletes need a coach to get them to the next level. The coach I chose and highly recommend is Gene St. Louis. She definitely got me over the wall and to the next level! After 31 years of private practice I’ve learned a thing or two. One is right coach: right result. Bad coach: bad result. Gene St. Louis IS the RIGHT coach!

Gene was instrumental in helping me find, evaluate, and purchase my practice directly out of dental school. Her energy and enthusiasm for the profession is unparalleled to anyone I have ever come into contact with. She truly loves what she does and always looks out for her client’s best interests. Gene uses her experience and up to date knowledge to make sure all her clients reach their full potential.

Your practice will only be stronger if Gene is a part of it. She has the great work ethic of the generation before us, the knowledge and expertise of a veteran, the uncanny ability to prepare for the future and the energy of the youth of today! I looked forward to our meetings because they brought me personal and professional peace. She would teach me something I had never done before. Human principles that Gene brought to our practice led us to new and incredible heights, reaching production and collection levels I’ve only dreamed of. I also became a better leader and manager.
