Andrew Shaul, Esq.
President

A graduate of Emory University School of Law, Andrew Shaul has practiced healthcare law in Georgia since 1983, and currently represents several hundred dentists and physicians through "The Shaul Law Firm, PC".

In 1989, he founded and became managing partner of Shaul & McCoy, PC. His law firm focused on representing healthcare professionals for all legal matters. Andy was strategically involved in all aspects of this transactional and litigation firm, and diligently represented corporations, small businesses and individuals.

Always looking for another challenge, Andy put his negotiating strengths and unrivaled operational business skills to work for a multi-million dollar medical facility when he became its Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel from 2000 through 2003.

In 2004, Andy returned to the traditional practice of corporate law and expanded his representation of healthcare professionals to encompass their business and operational needs, both on a local and regional level. His focus continues to be on practice buy-ins, mergers and acquisitions, commercial leasing, employment issues, negotiating and drafting contracts, employee handbooks and general litigation.

In 2010, recognizing the needs of healthcare professionals to have comprehensive legal, operational and consulting services provided through one Company, Andy associated with Carol Paige, President of PRN Consulting and Steve Beckman, accountant and former Director of Corporate Accounts for Hill-Rom, and created ShaulBeckmanPaige, LLC. Their combined expertise, integrated approach and incomparable ethical services are well known throughout Georgia, and they quickly became the only company in Georgia providing a unique triad of services (legal, transitions and management) integral to the short and long term success of healthcare practices.

Andy brings to the table years of strategic leadership, as well as an outstanding work ethic, a great sense of humor and a clear understanding of business law and successful negotiating principles. His documents are structured in a clear and concise manner that allow clarity and minimize the ambiguities that lead to lawsuits. His goal is to resolve disputes, not unnecessarily escalate them.

As his clients' practices have grown, dentists and physicians have continued  to seek Andy's counsel with associate agreements and exit strategies. He is frequently involved creating start-ups with graduates and professionals who decide to develop their own practice. Andy's personal attention to each and every client creates relationships that span the length of their careers and allow them to refer friends and family with complete confidence. His reputation speaks to his vast knowledge of the law, unrivaled commitment to his client's optimal outcome and his consummate professionalism. With few exceptions, Andy makes himself available to clients on their schedules, with meetings and conference calls scheduled for early mornings, evenings or weekends.

Andy, his wife, Kathy and daughter Casey, live in Cobb County. When Andy is not working for you, watching a Steelers game or traveling with his family, you can usually find him on the basketball court.

Carol Paige

Vice President

Carol Paige received her Bachelor of Science from the Medical College of Georgia, School of Dental Hygiene and was awarded the Distinguished Alumnus Award for 1990-1991 from the School of Allied Health Sciences. Combining private practice experience with continued studies in management, marketing and psychology, Ms. Paige underwent extensive interview and testing procedures with Pride Institute, one of the grass roots dental practice management consulting organizations, then trained and joined their organization as a dental practice management consultant in 1984. Her responsibilities included consulting and lecturing on a national level. Desiring involvement on a local/regional level and convinced that management plans should be designed around each office's unique needs, not a pre-designed program best suited to the needs of the consulting firm, Carol Paige established PRN Consulting, Inc. in 1988. Carol works closely with dentists and staff to create tailor made solutions to management and marketing problems.

Carol's speaking credits include: Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry and School of Associated Dental Sciences/Dental Hygiene, Hinman Dental Meeting, Georgia Dental Association, American Dental Association, American Association of Orthodontists, Northern District Dental Society and various dental societies and study clubs throughout the Southeast.

Ms. Paige is a certified instructor in the leadership series "Effectiveness Training" developed by Thomas Gordon, PhD and a Certified Administrator of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. She maintains an active network of dental practice management consultants and associates across the nation with active membership and participation with the Academy of Dental Management Consultants.

Throughout the years, working closely with Gina Waldsmith and Andrew Shaul as many of her clients added associates and bought/sold practices, Carol was honored when invited to join the firm as a partner in 2010. Thus, the entity, ShaulWaldsmithPaige, LLC, completed a uniquely effective triad to support the continuing success of dental clients in all stages of their career.

Steve Beckman
Vice President

Steve Beckman is a Rutgers University graduate with a B.S. in Accounting. Steve has worked in-house as an accountant for several companies, including Bard Inc., a leading multinational developer, manufacturer, and marketer of innovative, life-enhancing medical technologies. During his four year tenure at Bard, Steve used his leadership and communication skills to effectively manage and train a staff of 35.

Highly innovative and ready for a new challenge, in 1987, Steve became the Director of Corporate Accounts for Hill-Rom, one of the nation's leading medical suppliers. His primary responsibility was to secure the company's largest and most influential corporate accounts. Steve's business acumen and passion for better healthcare ensured long term growth and new partnership opportunities. He used his effective interpersonal skills to develop and train a high performing sales force.

Recognizing a universal need for reliable and trustworthy problem solving in the dental and medical communities, in 2003, Steve decided to leave the corporate world behind and establish his own healthcare consulting business. He proved a valuable asset to healthcare professionals assisting with start-ups, training and hiring staff, acquisitions and transitions. His expertise and knowledge in all aspects of accounting and financial management benefited each client, as he was able to establish clear accounting and business practices right from the start. Steve's core belief, "You always put the customer first.", is why clients look to him for solutions and why he will seek to exceed your expectations.

Steve and Andy have worked together on numerous projects over the past 20 years. They share a competitive spirit, a kindred ethical approach to relationships, and the dedication and drive to develop solutions to any problem.

Asking Steve why he chose to enter the healthcare field, he responded by saying, "Because I have always felt the need to help others. In several companies I've worked for, I had the pleasure of securing contracts with the Veterans Administration. That doesn't sound like a big deal until you see first hand the life altering benefits your products have on a returning war veteran and the impact it has on their family. It was deeply moving and a dream come true."

With Steve as part of the SBP team, your practice will benefit from his wide range of experience, knowledge and proven abilities. His unique insights, coupled with solid business management principles will maximize not only the efficiency of your practice, but the growth potential and bottom line profits.

SBP supports our dental community, sharing our business knowledge and practice management plans, speaking to dental schools, dental societies and regional dental events.
