What Excites You About Practice Ownership?

Dental Group Owner
I want To control my Financial Future

Who doesn't? Actually, a lot of people. 

Entrepreneurship has risks, but it also has great benefits. 

You can continue to play it safe and have a great paying associateship, but if you want to build wealth, ownership is a great way to do so. 

Ownership takes courage because the first few years can be challenging, but it won't be long before you double or even triple your income. 

I want to Do dentistry my way

Many of our start-up clients come from DSOs or private practices limited to the structure and systems others set up for them. 

Being your boss means calling the shots on the type of dentistry you want to do. A start-up means creating a practice your way. Your staff. Your ideas. Your vision. 

Pretty awesome, right?

Open Your Own Dental Practice
I want to Lead a team that understands my vision 

A team fully supporting your vision will help you grow quicker than any marketing strategy. 

A well-branded team provides an excellent experience for your patients, who, in turn, become your number-one referral source. 

Our Practice Alignment™ program will guide you through building a brand that helps you attract and retain those ideal customers.

I want to control my schedule 

The one thing you can't get back is time. Most of our start-ups are also in the early stages of starting a family. 

Having your own practice means controlling your schedule and ensuring you are there for the most critical moments. 

Let us show you how to be an entrepreneur with time for family and friends.

Our Start-Up Dental Practice Process

Phase 1: Branding  

Leadership Vision 

Great leaders have a vision of where they want their business to go but aren't sure how to get there. 

We administer a DISC and Values Assessment to get a 360 view of your leadership preferences and communication style.

Practice Story

This workshop is the start of everything. Having a vision is powerful, but knowing your ideal patient and how you will communicate with them is crucial.

This process is also vital for establishing your team culture.

Brand Image

When people think about branding, this is what they usually think about.

In this step, we think about names and colors, producing logos and crucial assets relatable to the ideal patients you chose in your Practice Story.

Phase 2: Marketing  


You have to get this perfect. We spent years working with service-based consultants to find the flow that brings the most conversions.

Being found is a great first step, but that doesn't do you good if you're not chosen.

Online Marketing

Google and social media are essential to your start-up's success. 

We started working with Google when dentists were still doing the Yellow Pages. We stay current and know all the essential strategies to get you to the top of searches..

External Marketing

Google is the short-term play but is limited to only those currently looking for services. 

Having a great marketing strategy means you are top of mind when people decide it's time to go to the dentist. This is a direct result of a great brand.

Step 3: Coaching & Consulting

Business Strategy & Operations

Great leaders have a vision of where they want their business to go but aren't sure how to get there. 

We administer a DISC and Values Assessment to get a 360 view of your leadership preferences and communication style.

Doctor Mentorship

What if someone that has been in your shoes could consult you on systems, processes, and technology?

Dr. Williams will consult you on what you need to be successful and help you establish the mindset that will carry you through the start-up phase of your practice.

Marketing Director

The critical area of marketing is strategy. In those first six months, having a fractional marketing director is crucial.

They will help guide you with social media, community events, internal marketing, and community partnerships that position you as one of the most trusted providers in the area.


Your Dental Start-Up Guides

Ben Shaver

I have been working with dentists for almost two decades, helping them open their practices and get started on the right foot.

My background is in consumer behavior and understanding the alignment between ownership, team culture, and your brand. This is the unique perspective we implement that brings our dental entrepreneur rapid success. 

I've also had success with passive income building, such as short-term rentals, so let me know where your entrepreneurial spirit is leading you, and I'll help guide you to success.

Dr. Michael Williams

I had a very unique journey in building my start-up. After residency, I began working as an associate and had several associate positions before I was offered ownership with a dental group. 

In the beginning, this was a great decision, not only financially, but it also helped me understand what the office's day-to-day operations looked like. 

The issue came with leadership. I realized I needed to have the support promised to me, and the group's interests needed to be aligned with my vision.

I left the group and looked for practices but found none in the locations I was interested in.

I knew it would be difficult, but I decided to do a start-up in the area where I live. It was the best decision I could have made. I embraced the process and loved it so much that I decided to help coach new start-ups to help them reach their success as quickly as possible.
