“It was an honor to attend Dr. Bob Pick’s Chicago MidWinter 2017 lecture on The Powerful Business Secrets of Dental Practice. The a_endees were truly fortunate to be educated in the same true style that ‘Coach Vince Lombardi’ used to develop his Green Bay championship teams. His basic formula for success for his team was to ‘Master the Fundamentals.’ Dr. Pick is truly one dedicated to helping doctors and their teams create custom systems and marketing plans that enable them to have a practice that is not only highly productive and fun, but one that allows them to consistently exceed patient expectations. His presentation is the most dynamic I have ever seen!”
—Dr. Hugh Doherty, FL

“Thank you so much for taking the time to speak on Friday. You really delivered on your promise that everyone would have a blast with amazing material. I was very happy to see so many drawn to your lecture and I have received tons of positive feedback! The only negative comment I received was that they wanted to hear more of your advice.”
—Jay Cahill, Midwestern University Dental School, IL

“It was a pleasure to hear you speak. I always gravitate to you and consider you a mentor. My staff was with me and I do a lot of what you say. But the PPPVC blew me out of the water and opened a huge flood of ideas! Status quo is never OK. Signing your book that you wrote with Jack Canfield was a thrill for me. That book is now on my book list for those that I mentor.”
—Dr. Jeffrey WiZmus, Chicago, IL

“Your social media, lectures, and live presentations on dental business practice management are very inspiring! You are on target regarding the importance of a minimum, twice-a-year, office team building retreat that you call the ‘PBR!’ Your industry expertise, and your energy remain a vital light-force for current and future dental professionals!”
—Dawn Dean, RDH, ADHA District III Trustee, WV

“Dr. Robert Pick is the real deal. His high octane business acumen and systems are so amazing and so good, that they allow you to stay on top of Mt. Everest even during top level storms. True!”
—Dr. Robert Deaver

“I have been practicing dentistry for 27 years. About 6 years ago, I bought out my partner and started my solo practice. Even with over 20 years of practice experience, starting my own practice was scary. I did engage a few management consultants who helped me to get started, but none compares to Dr. Robert Pick and his PBRs (Pick Business Retreats). I am already seeing a huge difference in my production and collection. Dr. Pick helped me to become the CEO of my practice by establishing goals, and by enabling me to put in place positive procedures and processes which helped me to reach those goals. While the goals seemed unrealistic at first, a_ending my PBR twice a year with my staff helped to establish best practices, to reach those goals. In 2016 my practice was able to break through a milestone goal, and as a result, I was able to take my staff on a Caribbean cruise to celebrate!”
—Dr. Young Kim, Lincolnway Dental; Surora, IL

“Finally, someone who has been in the trenches like us and fully understands what a dentist goes through. Listen and take note his “secrets” work and work well! We are now profitable, organized, growing and are doing well in a funny economy out there!”
—S.H., Albuquerque, NM

“Great program on what we were never taught in dental school, which is how to run a dental business and be profitable at it. Unlike most of them lecturing on this subject, Pick practices what he preaches.”
—D.S., Fort Wayne, IN

“Finally, a new and fresh face lecturing on Management instead of the usual bunch with the same material over and over again. Pick addresses great material that is relevant. I used it right away and he’s right. It works and my production and collection are up instantly!”
—C.E., Encino, CA
