Take the Next Step

The Paragon Program™ was developed to help dentists just like you.

Routine, one-on-one strategy and discussion with your Paragon Consultant

At the Paragon Program™, we believe our consultation helps our dentists implement the strategies they learn from the Paragon meetings and seminars.  When Ken Runkle founded the company 35 years ago, he believed that building one-on-one partnerships with dentists paved their path towards Growth, Profitability and Financial Independence. With COVID-19 and all the changes in dentistry, many of our clients reported 2020 as a record year. Paragon is currently offering a complimentary 2-hour consultation with an experienced consultant.

How Does The Paragon Program™ work?

We don’t believe in a cookie-cutter approach to your practice. We know that every dentist and every dental practice has a unique goals, strengths, and challenges.

What do you want to accomplish?

  • Increase revenue
  • Reduce write-offs
  • Add an associate
  • Case acceptance
  • Financial independence/retire comfortably


One of our experienced Paragon consultants will meet with your dental office throughout the year for a goal-focused intensive meeting. Because each dentist and dental practice is unique, we structure these meetings based on your practice goals and quarterly commitments. Most of our dentists will first meet with their Paragon Consultant one-on-one and then meet with the entire team. Connecting with your Paragon Consultant is an important part of implementing the strategies you will learn during any of our Paragon events, meetings and seminars.


In your consultation meetings, your Paragon Consultant will analyze your business systems to identify the challenged areas, or “speed bumps,” that may be hindering your growth. Then, we develop strategies to increase your practice efficiency and productivity.

Some of the business systems we build upon include:

  • Hygiene department productivity
  • Front desk team phone call answering
  • PPOs vs fee-for-service
  • Insurance plans
  • Increasing productivity and efficiency
  • Case acceptance
  • Overhead reduction strategies
  • Appointment blocks
  • Internal team communication
  • Leadership coaching
  • Internal practice culture and team communication
