It is both a delight and my pleasure to offer testimony on behalf of Dr. Scott Leune. I have known Dr. Leune for over 10 years. Since that time and during
the past year I have had ample opportunity to observe Scott and his Breakaway Practice presentations. I really get excited watching him share his wealth
of knowledge with everyone in attendance. His evaluations reflect extremely well. For this reason we will try to book him on an annual basis.
Dr. Leune relates well with the audience. He certainly has their best interest at heart and interacts wonderfully with our staff in the coordination of
the program. He is always willing to adjust when necessary.
Thanks to Breakaway we are doing well, seeing around 200 NP a month and doing around $100k a month in month 7. We have seen over 100 NP each month
and have been profitable since we opened.
I want to praise your team for the excellent job that they have done for me as an affiliate. Everyone at Breakaway has been excellent and I want to commend
you for creating such an effective team. Caryn has been great in making sure I'm doing everything that I'm supposed to and answering my questions.
Tommy was put in a very difficult situation when he arrived here last week. But he handled it very well and made sure that your team was able to get
as much done as possible while they were here. He's always answered my questions and been an invaluable construction supervisor. Pedro's team could
not have been more professional and polite. Again, they were put in a difficult situation but made the best of it and were able to get everything done
that they needed to. They never complained, even though they had the right to. They made sure things were done the way I wanted and made sure I was
I know there have been others behind the scenes as well. In summary, I'm extremely pleased with the service that Breakaway has provided. I can't imagine
undergoing this start up without the assistance of such a tremendous team. I look forward to our continued partnership as we get this practice up and
I just wanted to write and tell you how much I appreciate you allowing me to attend the Breakaway Seminar. I found the information very well organized
and well-thought-out. In working with local franchises (in another industry) the key is "systems." In your layout of metrics and audits so much of
the management can be delegated to staff members and still have accountability. Thanks to your training and by employing the right people with the
right systems, dentists will not feel so "burdened" by owning and managing a dental practice.
I appreciate your insight and willingness to teach. Breakaway served as a major launching pad for my practice (I just wish I knew about you before I opened).
But I found your seminars after I was trying to "emyth" my practice and was fully prepared to appreciate everything you were teaching. I drank your
coolaid for sure.
The practice just hit 200 new patients for last month and had an adjusted production of 1.5M for last year (our second full calendar year) and we are mostly
Breakaway with a few loose ends I hope to tighten up with our 2014 goals. There is still work to be done for sure but so much potential.
What you have taught and given my practice is more valuable to me than any other class or seminar that I have enrolled in.
I am writing this email to update you on the progress of my startup practice. I just closed out my first month and being open 3 days a week I saw 80 new
patients. I used many of the ideas presented at your course and saw great success with them. Thanks again for the wonderful information and insight
and I look forward to bringing my staff back to Breakaway real soon.
Scott is a genius and his system definitely works. The hardest part is implementation and with his help it's definitely possible to achieve
I am overwhelmed with the amount of things I would like to do to improve my practice. I will systematically start implementing these proven ideas
one at a time. This is the organization & systems I have needed. I have been wanting to come to this course for a long time. I have
been to all the major practice management CE courses. I wish that I had started with Breakaway.
Breakaway has been the most important contributor to my success. I originally came five years ago and came for a refresher. In the past five years
I have started three very successful practices using Scott's principles. There is no better ROI.
Great job! I am former military and I implemented some of your methods in our military clinic which more than doubled our production and efficiency in
our large clinic. You should consider offering a specialized Breakaway course for military clinics/services, VA, and public health service.
What Scott teaches is NOT being taught in dental school anywhere, and that is a shame because it is knowledge that every dentist should know before opening
his/her own practice.
David (Dental Student)
We are doing great. I opened from scratch 6 months ago in Louisiana. I used a lot of the marketing that Scott talked about and location and design tips.
I also took the six month smiles course because of Breakaway. It has added revenue to my office. I think the biggest impact is the post card marketing
and my location. I am in a retail center adjacent to a huge grocery store. I started in January 2014. I saw 120 new patients in March working three
days a week! I had to add Saturdays just to see the influx because I had a two day associateship at another office. I was so slammed with new patients
I went full time at my office in April. I have been averaging 100 new patients since March!! That is why I am bringing my team to the September
Most CE I've taken (>200 hrs in past 2years) have only proved 10%-20% useful and implementable. Breakaway has educated me on 90% of the things
I was curious about. The remaining 10% I have yet to experience in my career. A+
I have thoroughly learned the most important thing I came here to learn. I didn't know what I didn't know. My husband attended with me and we are so happy
to have attended this course. We plan to open next month and this Breakaway Seminar was our Hail Mary attempt to make sure we were prepared. All the
contents of this seminar was more than we ever imagined to learn. We will be back!
Thank You! Your whole team is amazing. This experience has shifted me in so many ways. I will be back to attend this again.
Really amazing vision to leave with. A wealth of information. Hands down the best seminar I have attended.
Most of the ideas and principles are "common sense." However, Dr. Leune verbalizes the ideas concisely and effectively, and the systems organization is
impeccable. Excellent in applying and organizing most of the things that are “common sense.” That is the bridge that most people can’t overcome. Great
job. Thanks for the ideas and suggestions. It is always great to learn how to improve.
Excellent seminar. I took so many things away that will give me confidence opening my dental practice next month. We look forward to working together with
Chinh (Dentist's Spouse)
Real, funny, engaging, up front, honest, refreshing. Overall helpful to every person in any dental office. Really just brilliant. I cannot wait to get
back to the office and start creating a better practice.
Allison (office manager)
I hope I can put 10% the stuff together at my office and if I can I'll increase collections $100K or more!
It feels nice to see and hear everything in person. My doctor was super excited about this and we have changed a lot. Now that I am on their level I'm
sure the office will do great things. Thank you.
Scott (Front Office)
I now feel confident in helping our practice start up and become successful.
I have been in a practice that has implemented many of your systems in the past 3 years and can tell you they work as you well know. I've been happy to
tell everyone here to listen to what you are saying because it does grow your practice! I have learned even more new information this time and am helping
a new office start and implement systems this month! Thank you!
Amanda (Front Office)
Excellent presentation and applicable information on systems that can be applied immediately. I've been in dentistry about 15 years and I have learned
things here that I haven't heard anywhere else. Systems have been tested in Dr. Leune's own offices and he can show us the true results from
that which we can apply in our own offices.
The "unknown" factors of building a start-up have been removed. A step by step guide to building a practice & choosing the proper location has
removed much of the fears I've had about beginning the process.
Unlike most lectures, you cut through all the usual (pictures of your office, problems dentist have...) and got to the actual real world solutions. Most
lectures give very few, if any, solutions. Thank You!
Best CE course I have taken. First time a course of this length held my attention the entire time.
Very good course. Loved the scripting, office checklists, marketing components of the course. Very happy I attended. Will look for ways to implement many
of the ideas into the practice.
This was the best practice management seminar I have taken in 25 years. Tons of useful content and support. Highly recommended!
Attended 3 years ago and thought this would just be a refresher. Loads of new info and tons of new support options. Awesome in every way.
Being a recent graduate, this is the kind of course that needs to be taught at every dental school across the country, especially considering the
present state of private practice dentistry.
Wonderful course-extremely valuable and applicable. Super friendly team. Thank you for teaching private dentists what we can achieve.
This has been the most comprehensive, low sales pitch seminar I have attended. The material given is something I can immediately apply to my practice
on Monday. I will be back in a few months with my staff
Best seminar ever. Far exceeded expectations. Walking away from corporate with confidence now. Nobody else does this. You're a
Very well organized! Awesome manual!
Had a great time. I want to go home tear my office down and build and start a new breakaway practice. Everything taught was solid content with tons of
easy to implement systems and ideas.
Fantastic!! I've been in practice 39 years and taken several thousand hours of CE. This weekend has been by far "The Best" I've ever attended. Info
can be of vital use immediately unlike many.
Thank you for providing actionable info rather than just promoting your services like most practice management gurus tend to do. Having the manual will
be very helpful as I implement these ideas over the next few months.
Easily most valuable seminar. ROI will be immense! All staff/team was super
I was uneasy about coming, was worried it would be a waste of time. To my surprise it was AMAZING! Scott has thought of it all. Thank you for sharing your
knowledge!! I cannot wait to share with the rest of our team.
Briana (Treatment Coordinator)
I did not know what to expect from Breakaway-I thought it might answer a question or two & hopefully give me the next step (a non-owner wanting to
own). Breakaway posed questions I never thought to ask and answered those questions. Breakaway is an eye opening for sure.
This is the most comprehensive practice management class I have ever taken. The scope and attention to detail is very impressive. It was completely worth
my time and money to come. I am excited to see what kind of dental practice I can create now having this information.
Very excited about my future now. I'm glad Breakaway is accomplishing what I have always known was needed in our field.
This was one of the best, actually THE BEST ever practice management, business seminar I have ever taken. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
Very knowledgeable speaker, useful information, "Think outside the box, " well tested ideas for marketing and scripting. This will be a part of our practice
Stephanie (Dental Assistant)
This is the most detailed CE, that brings everything together about practice management. I expected a lot, but this exceeded my expectations.
George (Dental Student)
We received a great review last week for one of our receptionists, who happened to be Breakaway's inbound phone schedulers.
We've had a good start thus far:
In December, we saw 121 new patients working 8 doctor days with a "profit" of $5,248 before doctor salary.
In January, we saw 166 new patients working 12 doctor days with a "profit" of $13,566 before doctor salary.
It's great to have a clinic that cash-flows its first month (actually 1/2 month) open.
Our patients love the Breakaway-style office design. My team and I especially love the tip-out bins and open storage / restock. There isn't
a single cabinet (or place to hide inventory) in the entire office. I actually put tip-out bins as the storage method in each room
and it's worked out great - it's amazing always having what you need without the assistant having to run to grab some item she didn't
know had run out in the drawer.
I'm unexpectedly still working and managing 2 other locations, so I'm thankful to have the opportunity to outsource! And to have the
efficiency of a Breakaway-style office so we can make the most of the time I do have in the office.
This is my third business masters seminar I have been to and each time I learn something new. I tried to teach the seminar to my staff and have been
unsuccessful so I just bring them with me.
Smith (Front Office Staff)
Business Masters Seminar Attendee
I am a person that likes to play it safe. I have been afraid to venture out on my own. Your seminar has helped me have more confidence to have
a safe way to start a practice with proven techniques. To say it's a lot of information is an understatement.
Business Masters Seminar Attendee
Dr. Leune really cares that his attendees understand the material. He cares for everyone's success. It's great to have him doing this for our
profession. Thank you Scott!
Advanced Startup Seminar
I'm a dental student and I've been studying practice management for the last 1.5 years through books, podcasts, dentaltown to hopefully prepare myself...however
the past two days included better information than all 400 hours of podcasts, many books, and several seminars I've already attended. I hope
to be able to work with Breakaway more in the future. Thanks so much!
Loren (Dental Student)
Advanced Startup Seminar Attendee
been using the cost savings program for the past two years no problems so far! last week I got a quote from a rep for a autoclave, called Terrence at breakaway and he told me the quote was high. Saved about a $1000 on the spot after I went back to the rep with the numbers we should have been quoted. Thanks Terrence!
