Oct. 9, 2012
Productive Dentist Academy lands a spot on fastest-growing companies list in Inc. Magazine for 2012.

DALLAS, Texas--Productive Dentist Academy, a dental-marketing and dental-consulting company based in Texas, appears on the Inc. Magazine 500|5000 list for fastest-growing companies in the United States for 2012.

With headquarters in Dallas and a satellite office in Anacortes, Wash., it has become one of the country’s leading providers of dental marketing and dental-consulting services after 73% growth in revenues during the last three years.

“Our rapid growth is a result of innovation and risk taking,” stated Dr. Bruce B. Baird, CEO and founder of Productive Dentistry Academy.

“We've been willing to take on new challenges and grow our collective corporate intelligence. Starting as a seminar event, we've developed into a 360-degree business solution partner for our doctors.”

Added managing partner and COO Vicki McManus: “PDA supports dentists in three critical areas: business analytics, marketing, and team building. Our ability to help small-business owners in the health-care field is based on our 30-year history in the field.”

Inc. Magazine’s 500|5000 list represents a look at one of the most important segments of the economy: America’s independent entrepreneurs.

Productive Dentist Academy landed near the middle of the pack at number 2,995. The company started in 2005. Others on the list include Astrum Solar, ING Solutions, Vital Farms, Pinnacle Solutions, and Unified Payments

Since 2008, PDA has increased its revenues from $1.4 million to $2.4 million. This is the first year it made the Inc. Magazine list. The company received its award at the Inc. 500|5000 Conference & Awards Ceremony.

“I'm proud of our team,” said Dr. Baird. “They've worked hard to listen to our customers and respond to a changing business environment. Our business is very relationship-oriented, and making the Inc. list is acknowledgement that we are on the right path.”

McManus added that she hopes her company will continue to shake things up in the field of dentistry and dental marketing in the future.

“We are looking to continue our expansion in the next three years as dentists seek comprehensive solutions to manage their practices,” she said of the dental consulting company.

“We are also working with leaders in the industry to address access-to-dental-care issues and affordability issues. Two such affiliations are with CareCredit and Compassionate Health Care Services, which are providing patients with extensive care and the ability to extend payments, even if their credit is less than stellar.”
