Our Firm

HDA Accounting Group is a dental-specific CPA firm located in Denver, Colorado.  We work closely with over 400 dental practice owners from coast-to-coast in 45 states.  We make sure our dentists have accurate and up-to-date financial information each month, we advise our clients regarding the ROI they are realizing from their practice in the form of adequate profit, and we help our doctors keep more of the money they make with quarterly tax planning specific for practice owners.

Our professional staff consists of Certified Public Accountants, Enrolled Agents, staff accountants and client service specialists.  Every staff member at HDA Accounting Group is highly-trained in their specific field and held to high standard for client responsiveness.  Although HDA Accounting Group is a national CPA firm, we were founded as a family business and stay true to our roots with our 3 partners and professional staff working hard each day to support our practice owners.

Our Clients

Our clients are dentists who own dental practices and dentists planning on opening a dental practice.  We work with doctors in any location including startups all the way up to large multi-location practices.  The majority of our dental practices have one-to-four owners and gross between $800K and $4.0M annually.  We do not work with corporate dentistry and limit our services to privately-owned and operated practices.
