Totally overwhelmed. That's how I felt the day I started my career in
dentistry. I was an 18-year-old, single mom. All I wanted was a paycheck and
a stable job.
What I learned changed everything.
When I walked into the dental office nothing was about me. There was someone in the chair feeling nervous, afraid, and often resistant; I had the power to change how that person felt by the way I listened and responded.
Empowering isn't it?
A few decades of experience later, I provide dentists and dental specialists strategic insights, perspective, and recommended actions to achieve their unique visions of success. Watching my clients reach their goals and live their dreams in deeply fulfilling ways is beyond rewarding for me; it is why I do this work.

Scott Rice, DDS, Irvine, California
"After 30 years of dentistry, I am now selling my practice and when visiting with the new buyer she asked what was the one thing that had the most effect on me in building my practice. My wife and I answered at the same time and said, Andrea Clasen. It is because of her that I was able to create a practice that went way beyond what I had hoped to build when we first met in 1990. Thanks for making the last 20 years of my career the best years that any dentist could ever have hoped for."
Patrick Simone, DDS, Las Vegas, Nevada
"Thank you for the 23+ years of guidance and mentorship. I credit your guidance for my success and the culture in my practice. I think what you do is special and for those not lucky enough to experience a respectful-patient centered practice…I pity them. You helped me define that standard, and it really has helped to fill my life (professional and personal) with value."
