Meeting Planner Testimonials

Mandy Swonger, San Diego County Dental Society: “It is with presentations such as yours that the Council on Continuing Education is able to achieve its goal of providing the highest quality continuing education and seminars to our dentists and their staff. I have enclosed some of the great feedback the Society received.”

“Speaker was exceptionally persuasive & motivational…”
“Jennifer has a great personality and was a joy to listen to…”
“The outline & filling in the blanks was a great way to keep our attention.”
“Please have Jenny back once a year.”
“So many unanswered questions speaker answered.”
“One of the best presentations I’ve ever attended!”

Lennox Miller, DDS, San Gabriel Valley Dental Society: “Your presentation to our society was outstanding. Everyone had a great learning experience mixed with good humor and fun. The seminar was so popular it was necessary to turn away even more who wished to attend due to facility size.”

James L Peck, DDS – Sacramento District Dental Society: “I would like to thank you for your “Terrific” presentation. Your seminar was filled with helpful and ready to use information for all who attended. Many of the attendees have taken the opportunity to tell me how much they enjoyed your presentation and how it was a great education for them.”

Nanette Bernstein, Mid-Peninsula Dental Society: “I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful presentation to our members and their staff.  We have had a great deal of very positive response from the program, and I know that the staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I can honestly say that after coordinating programs for the society for seven years, your program, by far, was the most refreshing and interesting we have had in a long time. I hope that we will have an opportunity to hear you in the future.”

Yankee Dental Congress: “Jennifer de St. Georges (JdSG) drew her usual huge crowd, keeps updating her material, and is a fascinating speaker with excellent ideas to take home. We hear her often on various topics.”

Chicago-Midwinter: “JdSG drew meeting’s second largest crowd, over 800 arrived ahead of time, and a goodly number were turned away. Program was ‘Communicating Financially with Your Patients’.”

American Dental Association: “JdSG was absolutely superb with her presentation ‘Communicating Financially with Your Patients’, holding over 400 dentists and staff through Tuesday.”

14th Annual Yankee Dental Congress: “I especially liked JdSG on practice management. She’s a great speaker, right on target…she’s got a new excitement about her.”

Greater Houston Meeting: “A really hot group of clinicians, notably JdSG who gave 4 different lectures on 4 different subjects: (‘Dental Team Strategies’, ‘Dental Spouse’, ‘Time Management’ and ‘Communicating Financially with your Patients’). All are very good, as you might expect. She is a superb speaker with much take home-and-use material. The ‘Dental Spouse’ seminar is limited to dentists and spouses and is especially relevant in today’s environment.”

Michigan State Meeting: “As I fully expected, largest draw was JdSG on ‘Marriage of Marketing and Management’. She’s a lady with a wonderful style, and good material you can take home and use the next day.”

Virginia A.G.D., Robert S. Wagner, DDS, President: “She presented a very informative and entertaining lecture, participants want her to return. She gave many practical ideas which we’ve successfully implemented in our office. Presentation was brisk, entertaining, but business-like. If you’re a sponsor looking for an ‘all-meat’ and no fluff course, I recommend Jennifer as the choice to make.”

Southern California AGD: “Our sincere thanks for the most outstanding presentation. We speak for all present when we say that it was a most stimulating program. An obvious testimony to your popularity as a fine lecturer is the meeting attendance was the highest in the Southern California AGD history. Thank you for making learning a most enjoyable and rewarding experience. We look forward to the pleasure of having you with us again.”

Connecticut State Annual Meeting: “The lecturer drawing the largest crowd was, as expected, JdSG on ‘Communicating  Financially’, and ‘Accounts Receivable Management’.”

Indiana University, Donald E. Arens, DDS, Director: “Our participants were the recipients of a rare treat – an education on how to collect money, a difficult and distasteful job. Jennifer handled this most difficult assignment with the grace,  poise and style that have become her trademark. It is a pleasure to see audiences recognize and support such speaker talent.”

Essex County Dental Society, West Orange, New Jersey: “Her energy was infectious and inspirational. Her subtle sense of humor made the day and the subject matter most enjoyable. Thank you Jennifer for an  informative  and  invaluable presentation. The 70 dentists and staff fortunate enough to attend our most recent continuing education seminar were educated, inspired, and entertained by JdSG.”

Northern California Dental Society, Chico, California: “Thanks for another wonderfully informative day spent with you. Regardless that this was your second program for us in six months, our attendance was over 200 dentists and staff, a tribute to your presentation. The material and manner in which you present it is informative, warm and humorous. We’ve received only positive comments after your visits”.

Loma Linda University, Loma Linda, California: “Thank you for putting on such an outstanding program, you drew more people than we have ever had for a mid-week conference. You’ve obviously got a good name! You were very well-received and well- loved. The fact that so many attendees responded to our evaluation is, in and of itself, indicative of a very good program. It was a pleasure working with you and I hope to do it again in the future.” 

Attendee Testimonials

Gernot Laue, Denmark: “I am the young man from Denmark, whose heart is beating faster after your lecture. I think it was for me an eye opener and the lecture that gave me the most to work with when I go back to my office. Thank you for your kind and direct way and charm. It, not was, but IS fantastic for me.”

Richard Smith, DDS; Mrs. Mary Smith, Practice Administrator, Springfield, Oregon: “The ‘Scheduling’ seminar was very instrumental in lowering stress in our office and helped motivate staff. We’ve tripled production and reduced workdays from 5 to 31/2. Getting patients to come in when we want is easy with the verbal skills you’ve taught us.”

Filip Calberson, Brussels, Belgium: “I attended several of your lectures this weekend at the ESMD Congress in Luthiana and I found them extremely useful, innovating and interesting. There are several things I could already change in our practice management. For example: you told us to correct the assistant immediately on the spot when something was done wrong; that’s what I did, and
it really works in terms of leadership, and so on. Thank you very much! Every dentist should attend one of your lectures.”

Scott Williams DDS, Grandview, Washington: “Thank you for presenting another sensationally informative and motivating lecture. You are truly in a class all your own.”

Darlington and Pawloski Ltd., Phoenix, Arizona: “Excellent program, to the point, well-structured and organized, with a superb handout. Well worth giving up a weekend for!”

Kristi Chapman, Practice Administrator, Downtown Dental Associates, Hawaii Dental Convention: “Aloha! Thank you so much for the seminar. I found it quite interesting and I’m eager to implement a lot for your ‘gems’. Your handouts are excellent and I am looking forward to using this additional information.”

Eugene Lindsey DDS, Los Angeles, California:  “One of the best seminars I’ve had the good fortune to attend. Beautifully organized, and presented in such an interesting way that no one could possibly lose interest. I look forward to the next one.”

Samuel Feinstein, D.M.D., Bridgeton, New Jersey: “Probably the most valuable presentation for the entire team we’ve attended in years. On our 1½ hour ride home, we were still enthusiastically discussing your ideas.” (Abridged version, 1 page testimonial available.)

Jackie Hanzawa, Director of Operations, Hawaii Dental Group: “I enjoyed your all day session last week in Hawaii and found you to be very entertaining and informative THE WHOLE DAY. I did not come close to falling asleep and found the material to very useful. I hope to see you again in Hawaii!”

Mason A Savage, DDS, Honolulu, Hawaii: “I had the privilege of attending your course at the Hawaii Dental Association meeting recently. I want to thank you for giving my staff & me so many wonderful principles in successful office management that we could bring back and start implementing. I particularly appreciate your gifting in oral communication. The examples you gave in using effective communication and word choice to proactively communicate with patients was priceless. I do not have any signs in my office, but you have certainly given me and my staff a new perspective on phone shoppers.”

Valjean Xaiz, Executive Secretary, Fresno Madera Dental Society: “Your program was extremely popular. I’m still getting calls from society members who appreciated your expertise in the area of employment law. They also applauded the fact that you shared your first-hand experience with them. Perhaps we can do another longer seminar on this same subject. Thanks again for a well-thought-out, beautifully-delivered practice management course.”

Rebecka Tucker, Practice Administrator, Westport, CT: “Your seminars should be required for all dentists and their staffs. Leaving rejuvenated, I can’t wait to return to work, motivated to implement your suggestions immediately. Your quotes are posted all around my desk as constant reminders of your wisdom!”

Claudette Okrasinski, Colonial Beach, VA: “Thank you for assisting me in making perhaps one of the most important purchases of the year for my new employer, Dr. Moss. The Scheduling Control Book binder and pages arrived last week. Dr. Moss approved, and authorized me to begin today using the system. I’m confident it will help us to achieve the production needed by our office to provide the goals set.

Last Thursday I loaned some audio programs I had purchased two years ago of your presentations at the International Washington, D.C. meeting to Dr. Moss. Today he was listening to them and writing notes…many notes, and smiling. Tomorrow is our weekly management meeting…coincidence (?)… You may have another budding disciple for the Jennifer de St. Georges management principles. (I do refer to you as my patron saint of the dental and medical offices.)”

Paul W. Callahan, DDS, Sterling VA: “I am not only a great fan of her common sense, practical approach to practice management but the humorous, light, entertaining style in which she presents it has always kept the attention of me and my staff. I cannot thank you enough for the practice guidance you have given me. The health and success of the eight-and-a-half month practice is a testimonial that what you preach works!”

Doctor from University of Washington, Seattle, WA: “Thanks for all the payroll and HR legal advice. It has been very frustrating, being in practice for all these years, without any guidance as to the legalities involved of being a personnel manager. I feel much better prepared now. I wish I had had this course before being audited, and subsequently fined, for not paying my staff within the law. Course was well worth my time!”
