The Four Quadrants Experience

Our four-part SURE Process takes successful dentists and puts them on the path to become multi-millionaires. We dive deep into financial planning for dentists – both practice and personal – and build a custom plan to take dentists to the next level, then help you execute it completely.

SPEAK with the prospect

We start out by having an initial conversation with a prospective client. The dentist discusses the issues they’re facing, how they’ve tried to solve them, and what has or hasn’t worked. We use that to determine whether or not the practice is ready for our brand of help. If so, we move on to the next step together. If not, we offer baseline materials to help get the practice to the right starting point.

UNCOVER the client’s problems

The first step is to learn as much as possible about the dentist’s current personal and practice current status to see how we can help. That happens in our Wealth Workup. We take 20-40 hours to examine the full range of your financial documents – bank statements, taxes, and more – and prepare a thorough assessment to make the final determination. You’ll see live proof of how we start you on the path to becoming a multi-millionaire before you make any commitment to us. We also meet with doctor and spouse on a phone call to get a better feel for the way the practice and home are intertwined.

REVEAL the data-driven solution

Next, you get to find out our plan for restoring clarity and order to your practice and your home finances. We will bring you to Indianapolis for an in-person meeting at our corporate headquarters to lay out your comprehensive financial strategy – a customized strategy that will change your life. At the end of all this, we know exactly what needs to be done to fix your practice. And so do you.

EMBARK on the path to success

Now, the plan is put into action. It's not your job to make sure our strategies are put into action - it's ours. You're not on an island by yourself anymore. We're here for you every step of the way. We will keep in regular touch so you’re constantly aware of your financial health. You'll get advice whenever you need it. And this isn’t a temporary fix. We’ll be there year after year as your practice continues to grow and become stronger.

Jason Smith

Jason Smith

President, Chief Executive Officer, Founder

Jason knows first-hand the financial problems faced by dentists and specialists – his wife is a practicing orthodontist. He started Four Quadrants after dental clients from a previous financial planning career asked him to start a firm specializing in the financial struggles of dentists. Today Jason focuses on developing vision and strategy both for clients and for Four Quadrants. Anyone can compile data and examine it bit-by-bit. Jason takes the big picture, connecting all the parts of a problem and all the data to find the root cause and build a unique strategy. Jason enjoys being at home with his wife and two daughters, and loves being outdoors, spending much of his time working on his land or in his barn.
