“I am honored to write a few words of endorsement for Scott Ellard. Many in central Michigan may recognize the name for his professionalism and successful dental surgery practice. I know him more as a man of character and as the entrepreneur dentist. I first met Scott at an information reception for the Notre Dame EMBA program. I could tell from his first questions and inquisitive nature that his reasons for completing his MBA at Notre Dame were more about making a difference in his community as an entrepreneur and creator of respected employment rather than as a dentist growing his practice. 
Since that time in 2008 Scott has done nothing but reinforce those first impressions. I know him as an alumnus of the Notre Dame EMBA and more importantly as a business leader of integrity who not only can see new ideas but also bring them to life. It has been a very unique pleasure seeing Scott melds the analytical skills, leadership development, and networking of the EMBA with his natural abilities. Without question, Scott is a person of character, a fine thinker, a tireless achiever, and a leader with integrity.”

Scott will bring the inside knowledge of a practicing dentist, able to relate to the daily challenges of succeeding in todays changing business climate, to your practice.
