When you think about the financial side of your practice, how has Profit First helped you?

I have had a bookkeeper and a receptionist working the office numbers and in addition to these expenses had to revise them for several hours each month myself, because they were never as precise as they are now. You know that knot in my stomach if someone is fiddling and weezling money ? I had it. Now I have full confidence that we are on full steam ahead to have a super successful 2019!

JUST DO IT…It’s like braces- never had a patient saying they wish they never done it- everyone is saying I wish I’d done it 10 years ago!!!

When you think about the financial side of your practice, how has Profit First helped you?

Profit First has helped to maximize our profitability by putting money away first.  It makes you more aware of what you spend and where, and you learn to live within your means.  I see ways that we can have a great practice, slow down, engage clients and still be paid well for what we do.

How has Barb’s coaching been helpful to your and/or your team? 

Barb has been my sounding board for a number of years. She has helped me sort out ideas and thoughts and look at things creatively. She has asked questions at the right time to kick things into a new direction that maybe I had not thought of. She brings many years of coaching to the table and because of her background in dentistry, she understands the private health care model.

If you are tired of not having money in the bank and under control, profit first is the best way that I know of to move things in a different direction.

My husband is a solo dentist. At one point in his 15 year career, he worked with a well known dental coaching company with some success, but was looking for something that would result in more permanent changes and a long lasting result. After a few conversations with Barb Stackhouse, he decided to enlist her help. I, as his spouse and financial office manager, was also a big part of working and talking with Barb as we looked to strengthen our dental office. From a bookkeeping standpoint, I found the Profit First for Dentists model to be just what I was looking for. Barb worked with us to determine a good starting point and, over the course of the next few weeks and months, she helped us to fine tune our work and look closely at our spending habits and fees.


The accountability that Barb provided through our Profit First work held our financial feet to the fire, both professionally and personally. We began working with Barb in the spring, and by summer I was able to relax my bill pay schedule to once per week, not needing today’s income to pay yesterday’s bills. By December, we were able to easily pay large end of year bonuses to staff based on office goals that Barb helped us to set, using money that we accrued with the help of her guidance through Profit First principals. 


Throughout the whole process, Barb was incredibly available and supportive. Her weekly group calls gave us an easy check-in point. She was prompt with answers to quick emailed questions. During our longer, scheduled calls she focused on all the right,and often challenging questions. I would not hesitate to recommend Barb Stackhouse to ANY dentist, and I wish we had begun working with her much earlier in the life of my husband’s dental practice.
