David and I first met in 2020 as he was the dental practice management consultant for the practice where we were planning a transition to purchase. Throughout our transition process David worked tirelessly, using his overall practice management and marketing acumen to help form a game plan that integrated me smoothly both into the practice with the team and into the community with our referrals and patients. He's a vital member of our team bringing high character and a strong work ethic. He is very responsive and always only a phone call away with valuable advice and feedback! - Shadie Azar, DMD, MSD

I want to express my extreme gratitude on the advice and dental practice management consultation you provided for management of my office staff. You truly helped transform my staff into a team. You have helped our day move from a daily grind to a smoother running operation. We have virtually eliminated the frequent squabbles and petty disagreements. We now work for a common goal. - Peter A. Russo, DDS

I have known Dr. Schwab for many years, initially as the Executive Director of the American College of Prosthodontists and most recently as a dental practice management consultant and presenter. He is very knowledgeable in teaching us how to better communicate with patients. His protocols regarding follow up with new patients and treatment presentations result in getting “warm bodies in the chair.” Dr. Schwab’s lectures and delivery are both helpful and entertaining. He has so much to offer. His knowledge, skills, and abilities make him a uniquely qualified consultant and presenter to help us in private practice become more successful. - David S. Clary, DDS, MS, FACP

David greatly helped us with complex staff issues related to our multi-doctor, fee-for-service specialty practice. His dental practice management advice was always timely and useful. He developed excellent rapport with the doctors and team members and provided analysis that was very beneficial to our practice. He also presented a program for our staff that was the best one of its kind we have ever done. I recommend him very highly. - Ryan Morris, DDS
