  • I have known Sandy for over 20 years. She is one of the most enthusiastic and positive people that I know. Sandy has always promoted excellence in dentistry management, efficiency in the dental office, and team enhancing skills. She has been instrumental in establishing many systems that we currently use in our office on a daily basis. Sandy is very knowledgeable and passionate about helping not only the dentist, but every team member in the dental practice achieve their maximum potential.–Diane RDA, Practice Coordinator

  • I first met Sandy Baird when she was hired as a consultant for our dental office. From the start, she was a pleasure to work with — upbeat, positive, knowledgeable, and professional. She was always there with a helpful idea or suggestion for whatever we threw at her! I would highly recommend her if you are considering a consultant to work with your dental team. You won’t be disappointed.–Cindy, Winchester Family Dentistry

  • I would highly recommend Baird Concepts for dental consulting! After trying a few previous consultants, I was relieved to find one that would actually listen and cater her expertise to my individual practice. I was a new dentist that had bought a very busy practice with great potential for more growth in a small town. I had no idea how to create systems that would help manage the practice and engage the staff as well. Within a small amount of time, I experienced more profit and knowledge of how I obtained that profit.–Leif Swanson, DDS
