Have attended many lectures by Front Office Rocks and speaker Laura Nelson is amazing. She is a very informative, knowledgeable and engaging speaker, who knows the ins and outs of being an office manager and the struggles we all face on a daily basis. I have watched her videos and webinars which has help train our staff, doctor and myself on office policies, customer service and patient communication that is lacking in many dental offices and which can be easily implemented.

Part of my team attended the Los Angeles session today and I find myself inspired and motivated to implement new ideas and systems into our practice. Laura is funny down to earth and gifted in her area of expertise. Every topic was applicable to our goal of wanting to grow our practice and provide an exceptional dental experience for our patients. The presentation was engaging and I found myself wishing for more time with her. I really can’t recommend it enough.

Laura is the best! I’ve known her as a Front Office Rocks user, and as a fellow speaker for Practice on Fire. Her presentation was a huge hit with our attendees. They loved her material of course, but more importantly her passion and energy. My team loves using her videos for training, and we are all excited to see what FORx comes up with in the future!
