Dr. Lynn Chincheck, General Dentist and Schiff CPA Client

First of all, thank you guys and the whole Schiff Team for all your hard work over these past two years in particular. It wasn’t just a nice tagline when you closed your emails with “we are here for you!” All of you have been there to help us throughout this unprecedented time. With everything going on in the storm of this pandemic, it was nice to have a lighthouse in the form of the Schiff Team to help guide us along. You guys are great, and we – your clients – can’t thank you enough. Yes, I’m thanking you on behalf of everyone.

Simply the best. Better than all the rest! Very grateful for Allen Schiff and associates for not only helping me stay afloat during these unchartered times, rather guiding me to even thrive during this pandemic. Thanks Allen for your advocacy for all of us Dentists 🏆💯🙏❤️

-Farzam Tamami

Upon deciding to retire after 42 years of practicing dentistry, I reached out to Allen Schiff. His staff was thorough, supportive and highly professional. They were all genuine in their concern about addressing my needs and strong desire for a smooth transition, especially Curt Cooney. As a result of their hard work, I received 5 offers on the practice, all at the asking price. I would highly recommend Allen Schiff and Associates.

-Richard Katz DDS

My thanks to all for your efforts in bringing to fruition the sale of my husband’s practice as quickly as it has occurred. I am completely satisfied with the outcome and know that John is happy that Dr. Trahar will be taking over his father’s office.


Thank you for another great meeting. Nishan and I value the time you and your team take in preparing and presenting this information to us. We truly enjoy your organization and enthusiasm! This is exactly what we were looking for!

– Alicia Halim (speaking for herself and Nishan Halim, DDS)

Hi Allen and Donald, I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed our meeting. It made me feel a lot better about where the business will be heading in the future. I wish I had known about you when I started. I think I might have saved myself some headaches.

– Stephen Wagner, DDS

Allen I wanted to let you know that I read the article that featured you in Inside Dentistry. As usual spot on! Things have been going really well here. Based on the production for the first quarter of this year we are on a pace for $1,—,—.–. That would be an insane increase over what we’ve ever done in the past. This month is looking to be just as good as the previous ones as well. Looks like all the marketing that we’ve been investing in is really starting to pay off. Can’t wait for our mid-year meeting to go over everything.

– Wesley S. Creamer, DMD

Allen, Good advice…I read the quotes and insight you had in the “4 Moves for Higher Profits” article. It’s nice to know that I have the best dental CPA in the nation who is well versed on all aspects of dentistry, not only the tax filing tasks. I feel like we have had some of the same conversations that are brought up in the article. Very interesting.

– Andrew B. Smith, DDS

We have really come to rely on you and appreciate how professional your office is. I have never realized how much of a difference good customer service makes until recently.

– Kimberly A. Baer, DDS

Thank you for an OUTSTANDING job that you do! The highest level of customer service and not the mention the peace of mind! Unbelievable! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!! OMG! Allen Schiff you ROCK! If you are a DDS or DMD and don’t have Allen Schiff CPA as your accountant you are wasting your $ and valuable time! His well rounded accounting firm Schiff & Associates provides excellent customer service no matter the state you reside in. I can’t believe I haven’t hired him sooner.

– Joan Werleman, DDS

Thank you Allen for helping me find a new team member. I was able to find someone with 20 years of experience and who knows my software well. I greatly appreciate your support and help. You are just the best, Just to know that you are there to help is a great emotional asset. Thanks for everything you do. Have a great day.

– Roya Madani, DDS

Allen Schiff and his entire team have been a refreshing change from our previous CPAs. Not only through the high quality professionalism and attention to details, but also through the cost savings and long-term strategies—they are fabulous. I work with dental practices who want to be more profitable and Allen definitely helps make that happen. Anyone who is looking to know more about the numbers of their practice should call Allen for sure! Thanks a million!

– Tanya Brown, DMD, FAGD

Over 12 years ago I had the privilege to sit in a dental school lecture that Allen Schiff presented. At that time, I was not aware how important and instrumental Allen would become in my career. Years later, when I was ready to purchase a practice, Allen came to my home, sat down with my wife and I, and took the time to explain the entire process. Not only did he become my accountant at that moment, but it was the start of a trusting relationship that I truly value to this day. In fact, whenever I discuss anything financial with my wife, her response is always, “Well, what does Allen think?” I am thankful for his expertise and knowledge. I always know that I can count on Allen and his team to get me through the year. Thanks for all you do!

– George D. Garbis, DDS

Being a young practice owner only a few years out of dental school has been a huge challenge. Having Schiff & Associates to help guide me through these times has been invaluable. I’ve had tons of questions about accounting, practice management and at times have just simply needed some advice on staff management or a pep talk to get me back on track. Allen has helped me in all of these areas, and his staff are compassionate, trustworthy, and always on your side. Thank you guys!

– Jesse L. Ritter, DDS

Allen & Linda have worked with me in opening my own practice. I had very little business experience going into it. They were there to help and answer questions whenever I needed them—even after hours! They are always very positive and have great advice on how to grow my practice.

– Joanna Luciano Parker, DDS

Our practice has been working with Allen for just over a year now. In that time Allen has provided me with a very valuable education about how my practice’s financial statements affect my life and my family’s life. Before I met Allen, I could not relate to my numbers. (I’m a dentist not a CPA right?) Now I am able to understand and appreciate the important of knowing the numbers as I assume the role of the CEO of a dental practice. He has always been available to me and returns my emails within a few hours. He always takes my phone calls and he tells me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear. Further, Allen is genuinely a caring and fun person. He and Cindy are do open and generous. We have a great time when we get together. I actually look forward to our quarterly meetings! I could not recommend him highly enough.

– Rick Rios, DDS

As a dentist, I found great value working with Schiff & Associates, a firm that specializes in dentists. There is also great value working with a skilled team on tax planning, management consulting, and wealth management. Too often these services become fragmented with advisors in different firms. With Schiff & Associates, all aspects of our financial world are part of a cohesive, long term plan of success. Thanks Allen!

– Clayton McCarl, Jr., DDS

I have benefitted from the outstanding CPA services of Allen Schiff for more than a decade. Before I met Allen, I has several CPA’s who didn’t understand the dental business very well and did not understand what I wanted from a CPA. I have stayed with Allen because he has provided me with quality, detailed accounting and solid tax advice. He has surrounded himself with a great team of CPA’s that understand the dental profession. Whether it’s an IRS question or 401(k) advice he has the people on his team who have the solution. He will also connect you to the right people: bankers, computer services, marketing etc. I most highly recommend Allen and his outstanding team of CPAs.

– Alfred J. Maskeroni, DDS

I have had a relationship with Allen Schiff as my CPA for more than 25 years. During that time he has provided me outstanding professional service and advice. With his help and expertise, I have navigated through startup business financing & equipment financing. We have talked through employee hirings, marketing and insurance trends in the dental industry. With his expertise in the dental field, I honestly feel that I have much more than a tax accountant in Allen. I have both a business partner and a friend.

– Lynn Chincheck, DDS

Allen and Linda- I am tremendously grateful for your many year of fine service. Whether it is with the timely account services, advice on tax and payroll decisions, or even rushing to our aid when we had a devastating flood, I have come to depend on you for so many things. Many thanks!

– Jay McCarl, DDS

I feel very fortunate to have been associate with Allen for over two decades, for both my personal and my business accounting needs. His knowledge of dentistry is such an asset in his ability to assist me in all facets of my practice, and I would highly recommend him.

– Leslie Londeree, DDS

The very first time we got together, I felt that you had my best interests forefront in your mind. I knew that you had many more clients that you had been working with longer, or had bigger and better numbers, but you made me feel important and special with the nuances of my practice. You made tough recommendations that required tough decisions on my part; the right decisions with monumental and positive outcomes.

Allen, you have your finger on the financial pulse of hundreds of practices and that knowledge you freely share with me. Of course you protect your other client’s private affairs, but I feel I have access to the big picture. The surveys are invaluable. The fee schedules and the demographics are the edge that keeps me on top of the insurance companies. You are my biggest cheerleader to keep my practice PURELY fee for service, not because it is easy, but because it is in my financial best interest.

Without your advice while you were with Grabush and Newman or with Smart and Assoc. I wouldn’t be as successful as I am today. You are my Blair-McGill and my Roger Levin all rolled into one. Probably better, because you approach my practice as a business not a tooth machine. I know teeth and how to make them shine; you know the numbers and how to make them sing. I wholeheartedly endorse your new and exciting venture and look forward to seeing you have the same success that you have brought me.

Update 2/19/2014: If I write anything else on top of my previous testimonial, people will think that you are paying me!! Allen and team are top notch!

– J. Eric Wilhelm, DDS

Allen Schiff has been consulting with my dental practice for 5 years. Our twice yearly meetings have been so helpful to my practice. We have continued to grow each and every year. He is so knowledgeable about everything in dentistry. I never met anyone who returns emails so quickly. He is truly dedicated to our profession. Keep up the great work Allen!

– Joanne Rief, DDS

Allen Schiff has been my accountant for 30 years. I am probably one of his oldest clients. He has helped me grow my periodontal practice from the onset to the exception practice it is today. I make dental treatment decisions all day long, but I need Allen and his team to assist me in the business decisions. I have stayed with Allen for 30 years because he knows dentistry. The decisions Allen has helped me with have always been well researched and supported by “the numbers”. I have always felt that I can concentrate on dentistry as Allen and his team have my back on taxes and my business operations.

– Leo V. Trail, Jr., DDS

Allen Schiff is an excellent CPA who is committed to helping his clients to become successful. He has tremendous knowledge from his many years of working within the Dental profession. Thank you for all that you have done for us over so many years. I would highly recommend you to all of my colleagues without any hesitation.
