Interview with Dr. Leslie Jacobs – Bringing Her Storybook to Life

July 15th, 2018

Dr. Leslie Jacobs is a successful pediatric dentist in Lafayette, Louisiana. Dr. Jacobs was kind enough to take some time to tell us about her experience with IDS and how it has impacted her practice. Take a look at her installed office.

 

IDS: Dr. Jacobs, how were you introduced to Imagination Dental Solutions?

Dr. Jacobs: I attended a pediatric dental meeting several years ago where I passed by the IDS booth and picked up a brochure. Once I saw the fun and creative work they were doing, I knew I wanted my office to be built by them.

IDS: Your office is very unique, where did the theme come from?

Dr. Jacobs: When I was in college, I wrote a children’s book called The Adventure of the Tall Giraffe and the Short Duck. It’s a wonderful story about how we are all unique in our own ways, which makes each and every one of us special. After talking with Dave (IDS’s President) we decided the best theme for the office would be telling the story from my children’s book. IDS built an amazing office based on the characters in my book and really brought everything to life! The transformation of my practice has been wonderful, absolutely wonderful!

IDS: Are you pleased with the results?

Dr. Jacobs: I couldn’t be happier! Dave and the IDS team were so great to work with. They took the time to create all of the characters in my book so accurately while bringing their own ideas to life as well. The end result is just so amazing. The kids love it, my staff loves it, and I absolutely love it!

IDS: Were there any surprises for you once the office was complete?

Dr. Jacobs: I know a lot of dentists contact IDS because they want to use their products as a marketing tool. That was less important for me as I had an established practice already and I really just wanted a special place for my patients to enjoy. The surprise for me was how well my themed office was received in the community. Everyone just loves the work that IDS created and it really has helped my practice grow even larger. It really is the best way to market yourself as a dentist.

IDS: Would you consider building another office with IDS?

Dr. Jacobs: Are you kidding? I wouldn’t build another office without them! They are so easy and fun to work with and the quality of their work is outstanding. I cannot imagine having an office that isn’t themed by IDS.

IDS: Do you have any advice to other dentists that are considering using IDS to theme their office?

Dr. Jacobs: Firstly, do it! Secondly, don’t limit yourself to what you have seen on their website or in their brochures. These guys do incredible work but really try to make your office unique. I am so glad I had my book brought to life by IDS. It makes my office that much more special for me. It was a big financial investment, but it was worth every penny. IDS is a really creative company that understands the dental industry, and they use their skills to make the best office possible.
