"The dental industry has numerous consultants that can mostly address specific issues any office may require. I have used Intent Dental Management since 2013 and Joy Gustafsons' recommendations, guidance and management support have demonstrated to be unmeasurable in several areas. She has the knowledge and vision to help a dental practice reach their next level and I strongly recommend her as a consultant!"
