Embezzler of the Month
Prosperident’s Sonya Hudson’s work helped nail this embezzler, and ensure her place in our “Half-Million Dollar Club.”

Investigator Profile
Sonya Hudson, Senior Investigator
Sonya is one of Prosperident’s “top guns.”
Before joining Prosperident in 2014, Sonya worked for an insurance company and managed the support department of a major brand of practice management software.
In many ways Sonya sets the standard for investigative work at Prosperident; her meticulous notes and highly organized workflow get frequent mention when we are training new examiners.
Recently, Sonya’s work led to the arrest of Jennifer Leslie (see the story in this newsletter), who is charged with embezzling over $500k from her doctor.
Sonya has caught more than her share of embezzlers, and we congratulate her on hooking another “big fish.”
Sonya’s colleagues at Prosperident include 15 specialized investigators who, on a daily basis, provide a level of skill and dedication that is simply unparalleled.
Something To Talk About…

And so it begins.
For many of us, our “New Year” actually starts in September. Fall’s shorter days, cooler nights and the start of a new school year, also coincide with the beginning of a continuing education year for many of you. As summer fades and we settle into our fall routines, many of us here at Prosperident feel a sense of renewal, and an exciting and fresh opportunity to connect on a more meaningful level with the fantastic dental community we are so privileged to serve.
This summer was a full one here at Prosperident. We busied ourselves with onboarding new team members including investigators, Owner Proactive Strategies specialists and educational speakers, while our IT team continued the development of software that makes the work we do for you more efficient and faster to deliver.
Probably the most exciting news we have to share with you is that we have continued developing our Owner Proactive Strategies (OPS) Service, as well as our OPS Multi-Office Service, with the addition of more OPS Specialists, carefully selected and trained to assist you and get your practice set up even faster!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this service, OPS is a complete and thorough diagnostic review of your practice’s policies, procedures, and systems performed by one of our OPS Specialists, with a view to identifying and correcting the weaknesses that could be exploited by an embezzler. Your assigned OPS Specialist will focus on over 25 of what we consider to be the most important policies and procedures, essential to a healthy, well-functioning practice. Based on our specialist’s in-depth review, we make recommendations on what areas we feel need upgrading, elimination, and restructuring to make your office the most efficient and productive place for you to earn your living. OPS provides you with peace of mind, by ensuring that you have the right office systems in place, and that staff compliance with your policies is measurable. OPS is not software, but it is the most advanced protection system available, designed by Prosperident, specifically for dentistry. We would like to invite you to visit our website to find out more.
So, welcome September! The Prosperident team and I would like to wish you and yours a happy and prosperous “New Year.”
