“Life-changing! Where else can you go to learn all the systems you need to run a phenomenal dental practice. Also hands down the most efficient, actionable, impactful CE I’ve taken while being entertaining and motivating. Fantastic food and great memories. Just freaking take Breakaway if you’re going to be a practice owner. Why fly blind when you can follow a map?”Richard LowDec 8, 2018

“Scott and the team at Breakaway Seminars presented a comprehensive set of information that is backed by testing and market research that anyone can apply to their business. I highly recommend anyone that is currently rly frustrated with their practice or team to come learn the systems for predictability and success. It was great to see that some of what Scott presents we were currently doing but could tweak for greater results. Get down to San Antonio and take one of the Breakaway Seminars!”Shane FrancisDec 7, 2018

Thank you Scott for a great weekend of learning and giving me the tools to advance my practice from good to great.”Jared SimpsonOct 9, 2018
“The Business Masters course was organized in a way that really helped me understand areas I could improve. I’ve started two successful practices already and I still learned an amazing amount. Lessons I had taught myself through failure and rough experience were explained with ease and in a way better than I had invented on my own. I wish I would have taken this course 15 years ago! I’m headed back for the startup course in preparation for opening my next practice.”Justin BellOct 9, 2018

“This is a very well-organized company teaching dentists how to start or grow their dental practices in the areas of physical setup, hiring, marketing, insurance, operational protocols etc. It is long overdue that something like this was offered and Scott Leune is a smart and successful dentist sharing everything he knows in a well organized and efficient manner. My friends have loved the courses as well and have used the information to great success. Highly recommended.”Mark BourcierAug 31, 2018
“Best CE I have been to. I received the information I sought out and more. I will sign up for other courses down the road. No fluff or sales pitch. While they are affiliated with other companies that offer different types of dental services, they don’t shove it down your throat. If you are interested, they have tables you can walk by and talk with someone after class regarding the other services. You will learn different and innovative ideas to run/manage your practice more effectively and more efficiently, specific to your type of office (specialty, group, solo). You will not be disappointed if you’re looking for methods to organize the systems in your office and decrease the headaches. Thanks Scott!”Jonathan Hairr

“One phrase that can summarize this seminar is “ Eye Opener” , it doesn’t matter if you have been in dentistry for 2 years or 20 years ( the latest being my case), the concepts that are explained are unique and really helpful for understanding and development of your practice management skills. I would recommend this seminar to all my fellow colleagues. Thanks Dr Leune and all your staff.”Maria M. UmpierreFebruary 12
