Andy Lehmkuhl

Andy Lehmkuhl founded Edge Advisors with a self-promise to build a company with a unique and outstanding offering back in 2010. Andy was born in Rhinelander, Wisconsin and spent many of his early years in Oconto Falls.  After graduating from college at the University of Oshkosh with degrees in Marketing and Human Resources, Andy worked at developing dental networks in rural populations. Andy then gained 8 years experience as the Director of Professional Relations at Wisconsin’s largest dental group helping the group grow from 60 dentists to over 100 and more than doubling retention rates. It was here that his vision for a company that would cultivate transactions with a fresh and personable philosophy focused on small business and leveling the playing field with larger groups began.

Since starting Edge, Andy has transitioned over 150 dental practices and helped over 200 dentists find employment opportunities.

“As the course manager for the Practice Management Program at Marquette University’s Dental School, I have had the pleasure of working with the team at Edge Advisors.  The Edge Advisors team engages our students with practice management and dental accounting material that improves the individual’s skill set and better prepares them for their dental career.  I have heard nothing but positive feedback from our students on the presentations given by the Edge Advisors team.  They have been an exceptional resource to the Practice Management Program at Marquette.” – Meghan Conger – Course Manager, Practice DynamicsMarquette University School of Dentistry

University of Wisconsin – School of Veterinary Medicine (2016-Present)
“Stepping Stones to Clinic Transitions”
“I approached Edge Advisors looking for a full-service business management team to present at my annual “Veterinarian’s Conference on Practice Management.” I was looking for presenters that would give good practical information in an unbiased manner – and boy did they deliver! The result was phenomenal! The presentations they gave received excellent reviews from our conference attendees. From the program’s evaluations, 100% of the attendees agreed or strongly agreed that: Edge Advisor’s presentations were unbiased; attendees will be able to use what was taught by Edge Advisors; AND all attendees thought that the program was worth their time and money spent. You can’t get better feedback than that! We’ll be inviting this team back for future presentations.” – Kathy Nelson – Director of Continuing Education – University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine
