Shimmin Consulting has been a 5 star addition to our practice and having Diana as part of our team has been especially outstanding during these past 12 months with all the challenges we have faced during this Covid-19 time.  Always responsive and supportive with myself and our team, the changes we have implemented has made our practice even stronger, more efficient, and able to provide a higher level of service to our patients. - Dr. Gabe Ollins

"If you are considering hiring a consultant for your practice look no further. Before hiring Shimmin Consulting I thought we had a solid practice but figured I should bring in a professional to analyze our staff roles and systems. I'm so happy I hired Michelle and her team. Our consultant, Kamie, is so dedicated to our success and has been a huge part of our growth. Since her arrival every single metric in our practice is up significantly. Also, our days run more smoothly and the staff is happier. The icing on the cake is that I now have fewer responsibilities and I can focus more on my clinical work. Thanks Kamie!!" – Dr. Daniel Akkaway​

Investing in a consultant can be a risky and challenging move for a practice owner. Over the course of building our 2 startups, Jenny Sun and I have used various advisers of varying efficacy and expertise. I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge Michelle Shimmin of Shimmin Consulting as the real deal. This photo was taken yesterday, after our second on site visit. To get here, Michelle braved an unanticipated 20 hour commute from Seattle to Phoenix that included 3 plane diversions and hours of waiting on grounded planes due to a monsoon. In spite of getting almost no sleep the night before, she showed up to our office on time and brought the energy to plow through 2 full days of audits and coaching with myself and my team. That sort of dedication speaks volumes to her character and how vested she is in our success. Since starting with her less than 3 months ago, she has unearthed skeletons in our systems I didn't want to know we had. She pushes my team hard and keeps them accountable in ways we desperately needed, but remains a source of inspiration to them. I'm loving what we've accomplished so far and am very excited about the road ahead, thanks Michelle for all you do! - Dr. Andy Sarpotdar and Dr. Jenny Sun

“I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much we enjoyed Diana's visit to our office. She's amazing!! Your company is very organized and I know the systems and protocols will tremendously help us moving forward. I'm very excited about the future of the office and I like how Diana was looking at improving all aspects of the practice. Looking forward to a better future!" - Dr. Rozheh Babaan

“Michelle and her team are phenomenal, so insightful. She’s keeping my team accountable and is getting things done like I couldn’t even imagine. My only regret is that I should’ve brought her in sooner. We’ve had Shimmin Consulting for one month and implementing her systems she and her team have already paid for her worth more than 2 times over!"

“I didn't even know how much I needed you, and you helped me more than I can imagine.” - Dr. Dovi Prero, Prero Orthodontics

If anyone needs an excellent consultant for their business you would be wise to contact Kamie with Shimmin Consulting. Having worked with other companies, she by far exceeds all expectations!!! The attention and suggestions she offers and especially her follow up and accessibility are and would be a tremendous asset for anyone she works with. Additionally, her professional yet caring attitude is exceptional. She has been great to work with in all areas of our practice. We really appreciate her help. - Karen Lambert

“Michelle, honestly, without your guidance I would not have had the courage to stand up to my staff and to exert my position. You have a GIFT, and I feel privileged to learn from you. Working with Shimmin Consulting has been a true gift. It hasn’t even been a month yet and there have been immeasurable and measurable changes! The amazing part is that they work directly with your team and encourage delegation and trust. The help you implement their recommendations rather than simply suggest them. I couldn’t be happier with their attention, care, expertise, patience, and heart! Thank you Shimmin Consulting!" - Dr. Noam Green

"Michelle Shimmin is by far one of the brightest and most innovative minds in practice management and growth that I have had the pleasure of meeting and training under. I have had the pleasure of attending many of her seminars and workshops and every time I walk away with new information  and can attest a lot of growth, both professionally and personally, to her and her company to date. I highly recommend Michelle and the rest of the Shimmin Consulting Team, they are a vital key to success and growth in the Orthodontic/Dental industry! - Kassundra Marketing and TC @ Bubon Orthodontics

"I got to know Michelle through Invisalign Summit where she was a lecturer/presenter. I was quite impressed by her very logical, structured approach to practice management. Our office was growing fast at 20%, 4 years straight, but we had a lot of loose ends. We decided to get a help from Michelle Shimmin. I really like their approach, manual based, well organized materials like manual books, letter templates and follow up system for new patients. We had about 8 months of active consulting and are in the 2nd month of growth management. Our office's collection went up significantly thanks to their financial letter system. Our gross production was up more than the previous 4 years which we had thought was impossible. We have still some work to do but we are truly happy and believe that hiring Shimmin Consulting was the best decision we made in 2018. Thank you Michelle and Kamie for showing us the ropes!"Kaoru Kay Rim, Rim Orthodontics
