In Good Hands chiropractor: practice opens in Wolfeboro with assistance from WEDCO
Dr. Renee Tetreault cites whole body, whole life benefits of chiropractic care
WOLFEBORO — Just in time for those New Year’s resolutions for better health, Dr. Renee Tetreault opened In Good Hands Chiropractic, PLLC, on Elm Street, an endeavor brought forth with many local helping hands, in fact.
After earning her Doctorate of Chiropractic at Life University in Marietta, Georgia, and spending the requisite amount of time earning credit hours and passing four national boards to become licensed, Dr. Tetreault set her sites on opening her own practice in Wolfeboro. She chose Wolfeboro as her husband, Matt Tetreault, works as a guidance counselor at Tuftonboro Elementary School and she also worked locally at other chiropractic practices – filling in for vacations and such -- after earning her license. In March 2016, she “jumped in with both feet,” and when she met with a business mentor from SCORE Lakes Region, he recommended she speak with the Wolfeboro-based WEDCO [Wentworth Economic Development Corp.], a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote and support businesses and the creation of employment opportunities by providing development assistance and financing.

And that’s what she did.
Dr. Tetreault reached out to WEDCO Executive Director Denise Roy-Palmer and the two met in April of 2016. Armed with a solid business plan, financial information, projections and so forth, she completed the WEDCO loan application and was approved for two separate loans totaling $50,000 to start the practice.
“What’s unique about WEDCO is they work with five banks to get you the financing,” she said. “Denise was wonderful – she had quick responses to my questions, she asked questions about the business plan to clarify a few things via email. It really was a painless process to work with them,” said Dr. Tetreault. “They are very, very nice people. And what they are doing is amazing.” She also liked the fact the WEDCO loan program does not penalize for early payoff. “That was a huge priority for me, too,” she added.
It’s all connected. Dr. Renee Tetreault uses a model of the spinal column to instruct her patients on the connectivity of chiropractic care to overall health.
Centrally located with plenty of parking, In Good Hands Chiropractic, PLLC, is located in newly renovated space at 16 Elm Street in Wolfeboro.
