Pat Little, DDS, FAGD, CFE

Gain peace of mind knowing that you are maximizing practice value while minimizing financial risks.

As both a dentist and accountant, Dr. Pat Little brings a unique blend of skill and experience to his presentations which focus on strategies for reducing financial and data security risks. Dr. Little also provides dental transition consulting to help dentists maximize practice value. He integrates his accounting and financial education with over thirty years of varying dental experiences including starting two private practices from “scratch.”

After leaving clinical practice, Dr. Little returned to college to complete his accounting and general business education. While working with a dental accounting firm, he developed a deep interest in fraud and embezzlement, so he earned the Certified Fraud Examiner credential and subsequently joined Prosperident as a Senior Fraud Examiner. Through Prosperident, Dr. Little conducts embezzlement examinations and advises dentists in matters related to fraud and embezzlement.

While maintaining his relationship with Prosperident, Dr. Little has expanded his lecturing and consulting services by joining Legacy Practice Transitions where he works with dentists to provide a wide range of transition consulting services.

Dr. Little is an engaging and entertaining trainer who presents well-informed and technologically up-to-date programs while converting complicated (and sometimes scary) material into “plain English.”
