Practice Evaluations

For dentists looking to purchase or merge a practice

The purchase of a dental practice will likely be the single most important investment of your lifetime other than your home. Most of us would never purchase a home without an inspection. Why should we treat a practice any differently? Gene St. Louis Consulting only represents purchasers on our practice evaluations. We complete a comprehensive practice evaluation (due diligence) which enables you to identify any potential roadblocks which might affect your financial success or failure. We analyze the practice business systems and examine the historical practice data to determine if the practice is operating at peak efficiency and where there is room to grow.

We uncover potential revenue earning opportunities for you by analyzing the accounting and practice management systems. These include—but are not limited to—patient retention, hygiene department production, doctor production, scheduling, accounts receivable, credit balances, active patient count, past due patient count, treatment acceptance, insurance involvement, new patient procedures, two year Profit & Loss statements, tax returns, collection analysis, and overhead review.

The program entails the following:

  • Practice Review
  • Comprehensive Marketing Demographic report
  • Fee Analysis
  • Executive Summary Report

There are many consulting firms you can choose for this help, let us show you what makes us different.

There are many consulting firms you can choose. We take pride in establishing close, productive and specialized relationships with our dentists and dental teams. Thank you for considering us to help you reach your vision.
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.
