Speaker: J. Haden Werhan, CPA/PFS
Haden started his career in 1980 helping physicians and dentists obtain financing to start or purchase their practices. He was asked by two dentists to help manage and expand their practice in 1982 and by 1985 they had four busy offices in the Bay Area. Haden quickly learned about volume dentistry, waiver of co-payments, and the mental and physical demands on dentists, especially in a production driven clinic. Over the next seven years Haden helped dozens of dentists find or build their ideal practice. Along the way he referred his clients to a CPA who asked him to join their firm which he did in 1992. In 1998 Haden joined Thomas Doll which is now the umbrella for their CPA, Payroll, Pension Plan Administration, and Wealth Management firms. With his seven partners, dedicated staff, and well stocked toolbox, Haden provides strategic planning and wealth management to physicians and dentists.
