VICKIE SOLBERG, DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Director of Operations for Dental Evolutions, Dental Consultant
Vickie has been a successful practice manager and consultant serving the dental profession for over thirty years. Her vast experience and knowledge as a Dental Practice Administrator combined with her expertise and skill sets as a Dental Software Trainer became the foundation for launching her consulting career with Dental Evolutions and Dental Project Solutions. She brings a broad perspective, extending well beyond the specifications and requirements of running a dental practice. Vickie has a gift for building relationships, in part because of her passion for the dental industry but also because she is an outstanding problem solver, thrives on teamwork and is relentless in pursuit of a goal. She has a strong network of dental professionals and Vickie is dedicated to understanding your needs and delivering exceptional service. Through dedication, knowledge and integrity, she is well respected among her clients and peers.
From years of experience in assisting dentists through practice transitions and start-ups, Vickie launched in 2015 a very comprehensive and specialized program to assist both the buyer and seller through the complexities of Change in Ownership. Vickie’s devotion, compassion and experience are paramount in assuring a smooth transition for everyone involved. She alleviates the worries and unknowns associated with a transition giving her clients the much-needed confidence during a practice sale.
To balance her professional career, Vickie enjoys her life in the quaint seaside town of Southport, NC. She and her husband enjoy walks on the beach along with time spent with family and friends. They both enjoy dancing … along with volunteering and supporting the local vendors and charities of Southport. One of the most memorable highlights was a dental mission trip Vickie took to Guatemala, serving children in need.
“Working with Vickie was one of the best practice decisions I made. She cares about the success of her clients and takes on an ownership mentality. When we found embezzlement occurring by my office manager, I hired Vickie full time as my practice administrator to restore my practice financially. With her skill sets and guidance, my practice became financially sound again allowing me to sell my practice of 17 years to begin the next chapter of my professional career. During the practice sale, Vickie was instrumental in assuring we experienced a smooth transition with my team of advisers. I am now loving dentistry in St. Croix!”
“I had the good fortune of meeting Vickie while acquiring a 2nd practice recently, and it was very much a stroke of good fortune. While every practice transition has its challenges, she proved to be very knowledgeable and committed throughout the process. I only regret not having met her before buying my other practice, bc some hassles and surprises would have been minimized and some pennies saved. Vickie balances the personal and the transactional sides very well. She grasps the individual’s tendencies and nature while sticking to the objective steps and checklist common to every practice transition and blends both considerations nicely. Her thoroughness and experience is critically welcome, and she really takes ownership of things in a refreshing way. Consequently, I hope to ping her for services again very soon as a follow-up to the transition and for assessing where we are and what changes we should consider in the near future to ensure a smoother and more efficient practice. Needless to say, she has my vote of confidence sans any reservation for colleagues in the market for dental practice consultant services. ”
“The transition program was vital in the early and continued success of our practice. Without Vickie, we would have been in the dark. She shined light on all of the variables and necessities we would expect to encounter, as well as introduced us to other individuals who could provide the specialized services we required. My wife and I can’t say enough good about the program! ”
“Intelligent, creative and calm under pressure, Vickie is an intuitive problem-solver. If you need her, she’s there. That’s particularly important for first time business owners, like I once was five years ago. Though her official title is consultant/transition specialist, she’s more like an angel and has guided me in the right direction many times over. Without reservation, I whole heartedly recommend Vickie Solberg’s consultation services to colleagues and business owners.”
“Vickie Solberg was recommended by a friend and colleague who had recently done a startup. He had only positive things to say about Vickie and was confident that she could help me navigate the issues associated with a new dental practice. I am so glad that I followed his advice. Vickie has been someone I consider a mentor and, now, a friend. She listened to my concerns, without passing judgement, and helped calm my fears. She was insightful and a true problem solver. She was flexible enough to assist me in any capacity where needed, helping me with setting up office systems and policies, recruiting and hiring staff… 3 years into practice ownership and I sometimes still call on her, feeling she is one of the few trusted and knowledgeable persons in her field.”
“I have known Vickie Solberg for at least 10 years. I first met her when I hired her as my office manager. In the time she was in my employ, I came to admire her organizational skills and ability to communicate with both staff and patients. I felt so fortunate to have her working with me, and the only thing that ended the relationship was my retirement. I still stay in contact with Vickie as a friend and feel she would be a great asset to any office situation. She would excel in an office that needs a re-organization or one that is just starting out to guide its success.”
