Our Philosophy

Home Our Philosophy

Founded by Ken Runkle in 1986

The Paragon Program™ is one of the largest full-service dental practice management consulting firms in the United States. Our team currently works with more than 400 general and specialist practices to help dentists achieve long-term success. The Paragon Program™ was founded by Ken Runkle, America’s Profitability Expert™, on the principle that you must grow and evolve as a person and dentist to grow your practice.

Our Mission is simple.

We want to help dentists grow on a personal, professional, and practice level. Our goal is for each client to become a great leader while establishing a legacy practice that operates at peak efficiency. Most importantly, we focus on helping each doctor achieve financial independence.

 Paragon Mission Statement

  • We help our clients increase their practice revenues immediately. After our clients reach their long-term goal we will help them continue to grow by 7% annually.
  • We help our clients attain a net pre-tax income of at least 40% within two to four years of their start date in The Paragon Program™. This involves our long-term guidance of their taking on any additional debt or fixed costs.
  • We help our clients develop a long-term financial strategy within 10 years from their start in The Paragon Program™ for achieving financial independence.
