The consulting services and educational offerings are geared toward private practice owners, including orthodontists, and include one-on-one coaching opportunities. 

Darby Dental Supply announced its partnership with the Productive Dentist Academy (PDA) to give customers, including orthodontists, access to dental-specific consulting services and educational opportunities. PDA provides a full range of consulting, marketing, and learning services to help dental practices achieve better results and elevate patient experience.

Founded in 2004 by Dr Bruce B. Baird and CEO Victoria Peterson, SsD, PDA has been recognized by Inc. 5000 as one of the fastest growing private companies in America. 

The partnership is part of Darby’s efforts to provide dental providers with both supplies and services that drive their long-term practice success. 

“Darby is committed to seeking out the most advanced and valuable solutions available in the industry,” said Michael Caputo, president of Darby Dental Supply. “We are excited to give customers access to PDA’s services that address the unique challenges dental practices face today.”

PDA is offering Darby customers a $700 scholarship to their popular “PDA Business Impact: Foundations Program.” The 2-month coaching program is led by Peterson and is focused on empowering dental practice owners with tools to create a profitable, successful business. Hosted virtually, the course includes one-on-one coaching sessions, 10 peer learning sessions, a printed workbook, 8 hours of AGD CE, and access to a private PDA online community.

“Darby Dental has built a trusted reputation of quality and service,” said Peterson. “We are excited to deliver innovative solutions to doctors to help manage supply overhead and increase quality of care for their patients. Dr Baird and I view this partnership as a way of bringing value to private practice owners.”
