Purchase Course Learn More

Are you overwhelmed by your ‘to-do’ list for your startup or acquisition?

This 30-day crash course was developed from coaches who have successfully opened multiple start-up practices that defy the norm. These practices have gone from start-up to $1.5 million in the first year, with patient bases in the thousands, set in beautiful modern spaces. They’ve also acquired over 25 practices between them, turning them into highly profitable operations.

During this course you will learn the step by step systems it takes to execute your dream practice.

What You'll Get

  • Assistance in designing your future space, including help with site selection, equipment purchasing and design
  • Advice and best practices on acquisitions with staff transitions, new insurance contracts, and more
  • Access to the Dental Success Network with community and resources
  • The 30-day practice transformation will include everything that you need to become a more evolved, informed and sophisticated business owner. It is important to understand, however, that in order to achieve optimal results, participation cannot be passive or incomplete.

This 30-day course will include all the resources you need to solidify your vision and help you avoid all the pitfalls that often occur when you’re ramping up your dental practice in either a startup or acquisition. With the course we expect participation and collaboration with the other students to help everyone learn throughout the process. There will be assignments and we expect that if you miss a course due to conflict, you will catch up before the next course to remain on track with the rest of the group.

In the dental field we have seen both mediocrity and wild success with new practices. With our systems and experience we can pass along the knowledge to help you build your perfect practice that will give you the financial success you deserve.

One of the biggest differentiating factors for the Dental Success Institute in comparison to other coaching groups is our community-based approach. It is our belief that collaboration and sharing of best practices amongst like-minded high performers has the power to lead to exponential growth and success. During this 30-day training, we will communicate within a private community forum hosted inside of the Dental Success Network. This will be a safe place to post your challenges, victories, questions and best practices. We have found a direct correlation between high levels of participation and positive results realized during the training process.
