I have found that Dodd & Co have an extensive and thorough specialist knowledge of Dental Accounting. They offer a personal touch and Heidi Marshall and the team are happy to explain things in plain English, which has been very helpful. Also I have found their input has given me peace of mind through the difficult transition between being an associate dentist, to being a practice owner. As a firm they have always been prompt and ­professional, becoming an intrinsic part of the support I need as a principal dentist. The services I have used include: accounts as a dental associate; information and advice around incorporation; review of potential practices to purchase; in-depth analysis of the accounts of the practice I bought; quarterly reviews through the first year as a practice owner, including a lesson on book keeping; and forecasting before practice ­refurbishments, and end of year accounts. I would recommend Dodd & Co and look forward to working with them as my practice grows.
