"My Staff Is Better Than Ever & The Best Part Is...I Don't Have To Be The One To Manage Them. That's Powerful!" 


“Working with Summit Dental Partners has made things run more smoothly in our practice. Their vast knowledge and experience has helped our front desk staff to be more productive. They've implemented systems for insurance in our business that have increased our cash flow. I love that they come in and act as part of our team. It means that someone else besides me is giving the staff numbers and goals to achieve. That management and direction coming from someone other than me is so powerful. I'm thrilled with our staff and delighted to have Summit overseeing their success.”

"Doubled the Success of the Previous Owner"


"I met Summit through the broker who sold me my practice. The consultants helped me before the sale by spending time in the practice and by educating me about the business of dentistry. They worked with me for the first year in every aspect of the business.The practice had been run by an absentee owner and was in desperate need of an overhaul. They totally restructured the office, from the physical plant to systems and personnel. THey set up and ran the finances of the practice as well. I don't think I could have done it without Summit!. I am enjoying almost double the success of the previous owner with half the staff. When it was time for Summit to move on they trained my new office manager and we feel their presence in the excellent systems they established. I call Summit whenever I have a question or concern and they are always available to help. Summit's honesty and sincere concern for my success was apparent every time they were working with us. Every practice could benefit from an assocation with Summit Dental Partners."

"My Business Doubled!"  


"I hired Summit Dental Partners because I knew I wanted to grow my practice. Summit Dental Partners was a tremendous helping hand, a great sounding board, and helped me implement processes, procedures, and critical marketing and operational tactics that increased my cash flow. Their professionalism and experience is second to none. Plus, they treat you like a friend. In the short time I've worked with Summit, my business has doubled. I would absolutely recommend them to any practice looking to streamline or grow."

"Summit Raised the Bar-Best 4 Months We've Had in 7 Years"


"I hired Summit to help me resolve a personnel issue in my Nashua, New Hampshire practice. I was impressed by the consultant's honesty and the way she gained the trust of the staff almost immediately. I then asked Summit to help me with my Lowell, Mass office. They came in March of 2005 and are still working with us on a regular basis. They have examined every aspect of the practice and under their guidance we have enjoyed 4 of the best months since I purchased this practice 7 years ago. Our Summit consultant has truly become a member of our family and has inspired and encouraged the staff to raise the bar both for themselves and for the practice. Their presence in my office has given me peace of mind and allows me the confidence of knowing that my systems and staff are being taken care of so I can once again concentrate on caring for my patients. It would be my pleasure to recommend Summit Dental Partners to any practice, as I can't imagine running my practice without them on my team. Please feel free to call me if I can be of any help."

"Objective, Focuses on Goals, Fair & Honest"


"When I joined Cross Point Family Dental 8 months ago as office manager I knew I was looking at long hours and a lot of work since the practice had just been purchased a few months earlier. There were several things that needed to be transitioned to start a new practice. Although confident in my abilities, I was just not accomplishing what I wanted to do in a reasonable amount of time. When Dr. Peysakhov said he knew of a dental consultant I was hesitant, since my previous experience with dental consultants were not very positive.The first day Summit came into the office they immediately explained to me that their role, unlike other consultants or coaches, was not to dictate by giving us a list of things to do, but to work with us. Summit made it clear they were there to help make suggestions and decisions based on our office needs. I knew in that first hour of conversation that the consultant's well spoken knowledge of dentistry, management experience and confident professional attitude was going to be an invaluable asset to our office. In the last few months, our consultant has become a highly regarded working member of our staff as well as a great teacher. Their ability to remain objective; focused on goals; and be fair and honest have proven outstanding. I highly recommend Summit Dental Partners."

"Excellent First-Hand Knowledge of Dental Business"


"During my tenure at Sowles-Trauring Dental Partners of Boston I had the opportunity to work closely with Nancy Kagan. Nancy was brought into the practice to establish systems and processes for the practice as it relocated to the Prudential Center in Boston and underwent a major expansion. I joined the practice immediately after the relocation as a general dentist and relied heavily on Nancy's expertise during that period. As a result I feel I am well qualified to comment on her professional capabilities. During my career as a general dentist, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of dental practice consultants. I can say without hesitation that Summit's knowledge of the dental business coupled with their common sense and people skills clearly set them apart from the pack. In a profession where many of their counterparts get by on a cookie-cutter approach and generic ideas, Summit is in a class of their own due to their initiative, creative thinking and intelligence. I can think of no better compliment regarding Summit than to say that I will soon be purchasing my own practice, and I expect that my first official act will be to bring Summit Dental Partners on board to assist with the transition."

"Our Practice is Simplified & More Efficient Than Ever"

"You Know How To Get Results!"


"Summit's staff is wonderful to work with. They are excellent at communicating with staff, providing systems and procedures, and helping to keep our practice running smoothly. Over the time we've worked with Summit, our practice has grown, our recalls have improved, and our schedule is full. Everyone there has real world experience in our field so its isn't just theory. Summit knows how to get you results. I can't say enough good things about them."

We Are More Organized With Systems & Processes That Work!"

“Personalized, One-On-One Attention”


“I cannot say enough good things about Nancy Kagan and her staff at Summit Dental Partners. I recently purchased a dental practice and hired Summit to get me through the transition. I looked into some of the bigger, national consulting firms, but opted to go with Summit because they are a local small business like my own. I get the personal one on one attention I really need and they are quick to return any emails or phone calls. My office is still a work in progress, but I can see a lot of positive changes since we have put our new systems into place. I'm looking forward to continuing to grow my practice with Summit Dental Partners by my side.”

“Our Practice Was Transformed”


“I have worked with Summit Dental Partners for nearly 3 years now. As a young dentist purchasing a practice, I knew I needed help but was apprehensive about hiring a consultant. Soon after I started working with Summit, I knew I had made the right decision. Nancy and her team are trustworthy, experienced, and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of dentistry and running a dental practice. On top of that, they are also really easy to work with. From staffing, to implementing quality systems, to consulting on personnel issues and new technology, Summit has really helped transform my practice into something great and she can do the same for you.”

What Our Customers Have to Say

Dear dental colleague:
I am pleased with Summit Dental and want to share my good experience with you.
If you don't have a responsible, very experienced office manager or front desk staff, you will know how much headache it is to run the office and worry about your financial health. Collecting money from dental insurance and from patients is not an easy job. Even the experienced staff may not put their full effort in to do the job without supervision. Also embezzlement can happen more than a dental owner wants to know.
All those problems happened to me and now has been taking care of by Summit Sental company. They have knowledgeable professional staff working hard to deal with insurance and working with our patients to collect their balance. They are also going to let you know if there is any suspicious account activities. I think many of you could benefit from their excellent service. 
Dr. Luping Ge, Massachusetts

Summit Dental Partners was an invaluable resource to our office during a huge transition period. We worked closely with our representative in developing the best course of action that was suitable for what we needed at that particular time. Within a very short period, outstanding claims were being worked on and submitted with payments promptly coming in. Their knowledge of insurance helped to get our accounts receivable department back on track, so we could focus on other projects that needed our attention.

Everything in One Place

access to everything you need

Summit Dental is a very well-organized company teaching dentists how to start or grow their dental practices in the areas of physical setup, hiring, marketing, insurance, operational protocols etc. Nancy is a smart and successful businesswoman sharing everything she knows in a well organized and efficient manner. Her team goes above and beyond to make sure my office does well. I recently added their remote services and Summit takes excellent care of my account receivable. There was a problem with an insurance we are in contract with and Summit Dental and staff were on top of it consistently to make sure the payments are received, from calling the insurance directly to contacting the area rep. Plus, I have one less employee to deal with and worry about specially when it comes to finances.


I highly recommend Summit Dental and am grateful for the relationship my office has established with Nancy and her team.
