Articles, Nifty Awards

It’s a real treat for me to introduce you to an outstanding individual who clinched the “Favorite Dental Consultant” award in 2023. Genevieve Poppe’s expertise and commitment to the industry have earned her this well-deserved accolade. So, let’s dive into her story and what makes her tick.

A surprise win.
When Genevieve received the news of her win, she was “surprised”—and I can’t say I’d react any differently. Dental consulting is a fiercely competitive market. I can’t imagine going head-to-head with some of the industry’s big dogs and coming out on top. It’s a feat that’s bound to leave anyone awestruck.

Genevieve attributes her success to the power of relationships. It’s not just about the dentists and former clients
she’s worked with. She’s more like an “industry friend” who has built bridges across various corners of the dental field. Her extensive network and dedication to delivering tangible results have certainly played a pivotal role in her journey to becoming the “Favorite Dental Consultant.”

Running a dental practice requires being a leader. People in the industry can’t stop singing her praises, and it’s easy to see why. Genevieve doesn’t just boost people’s confidence; she empowers them to grow their practices,
and that’s something folks truly appreciate.

I asked Genevieve to share one piece of advice for dental practice owners, and let me tell you, it wasn’t easy for her to pick just one. “Learn to be a great boss,” she told me, highlighting the importance of stepping intothe role of a leader rather than trying to be everyone’s “mom.” In her eyes, a dental practice should be built on a strong foundation of performance and accountability, with the practice owner steering the ship.

What’s on Genevieve’s horizon for 2024?
Looking ahead to 2024, Genevieve has some exciting plans. Professionally, she’s all about expansion. She has her sights set on ramping up productivity, and to make it happen, she’s bringing in a virtual assistant. This move isn’t just about her; it’s about giving her clients the level of attention they deserve.

And she’s not stopping there. In the coming year, Genevieve is toying with the idea of adding more coaches to her team. She’s picky about who she works with, and this expansion is a clear example of her commitment to supporting the dental community and pushing the boundaries of her consultancy services.

But Genevieve’s not just about business—she’s all about exploration, too. Travel is her passion, and she’s already joking about landing clients in exotic locations. Places like Hawaii could be her next playground, where her expertise could weave magic. Genevieve is excited about the prospect of combining business with pleasure, taking her consultancy services to some of the most beautiful and intriguing spots on the globe.

The balancing act: Genevieve’s advice for entrepreneurs.

For those eyeing a career in dental consultancy, Genevieve has some sage advice. First things first, get crystal clear on what you bring to the table. It’s not just about experience; it’s about articulating the value you can offer to a practice or organization. She encourages budding consultants to craft a compelling elevator pitch that showcases their ability to make a real difference.

If you’re inspired by Genevieve’s work and want to collaborate with her, there are plenty of ways to make it happen. She’s all over social media, has a website, and you can find her on LinkedIn. For clients looking to engage her as a consultant, Genevieve suggests reaching out by email or to schedule a call to get acquainted.

Juggling work and life is a universal struggle, and Genevieve gets that. She’s learned that perfection in balancing these demanding roles is a bit of a unicorn. Her advice is simple yet profound: Learn to say “no.” Turn down opportunities that don’t align with your goals and values. Her experiences have shown her that saying “no” to
a client who doesn’t quite fit can lead to a happier and more successful practice.
