“The information I learned works so well that I now have three hygienists and a much busier office, despite dropping 75% of our reduced fee plans!” – Alla Dorfman, DDS Tribeca, NY
“The MGE training made my office far more efficient. We are more productive in much less time than ever before. The way we approach our schedule has been vastly improved. Overall, since becoming a client, collections have more than doubled.” – William Nerestant, DDS Lakeland, FL
“Our schedule used to be a real problem. The days were filled with patients at all times of the day with all types of procedures. Production was inconsistent and at the end of the day I would be frazzled! Now, using the scheduling system taught by MGE, our schedule runs great! Mornings are very productive and our schedule is smooth and consistent.” – Vince Guerra, DDS Jupiter, FL
“Before coming to MGE we struggled with a 50% cancellation rate, inconsistent production, too many write-offs and poor profitability. With what we learned from MGE, cancellations and no-shows are infrequent, we’ve dropped all of our PPOs and HMOs, and collections have increased drastically!” – Maryam Seifi, DDS Rockville, MD
