LESLIE PASCO, DMD Dr. Leslie is a general dentist, practice owner, practice management consultant, public speaker, and a mom. As you can see, she’s the type of person who wants to do it all – and without making any compromises when it comes to being successful, delivering top-level quality of care to her patients, and having a family. Doing all of this is quite a balancing act, however, and it was a journey getting to this place. Graduating from University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 1998, Dr. Leslie started her career driven by two passions: dentistry and helping people. When she purchased a practice in Buffalo, New York, she was able to do both, but she felt limited by the fact that she only had two hands – meaning she could only help one patient at a time. This urge to do more brought her to MGE: Management Experts in the early 2000s, where she learned how to improve efficiency and expand her dental practice, eventually graduating MGE’s full executive training program. Throughout that time, she expanded her dental office to help more patients with comprehensive treatment – growing to over 20,000 patient charts, bringing in associates and specialists to improve care, and collecting over $4 million annually. While this was a fantastic situation, she soon found that she had a new passion: helping her colleagues with their practices. By consulting with and lecturing to her fellow dentists about vital subjects like case acceptance, efficiency and practice management, she is able two extend her “two hands” to help even more patients get healthy and help the dentists reduce stress and gain career satisfaction. That led her to do the unthinkable and sell her powerhouse Buffalo practice and open up a boutique office outside of Pittsburgh that allows her to deliver great care to her patients while traveling all over the United States and Canada to lecture to dentists looking for management assistance.
