Practice Development & Coaching for Dental Teams


Our coaching programs are customized to meet the specific needs of your practice and team. Just as every practice has different strengths, weaknesses, and personalities, they usually have different goals and ideas for the kind of training they would prefer. After spending time with you to discuss your practice, and conducting a thorough practice assessment, we tailor a program of in-office training that is designed specifically for you.

In addition to coaching services, as an accredited provider with the Dental Board of California, we host various continuing education courses on a wide variety of topics ranging from clinical to management & business related topics throughout the year. Our group of practicing clinicians speak on indirect restorations, anterior restorations, implant dentistry, dental photography, orthodontic treatment options, treatment planning and other clinical topics.

Practice of the year 2015

Practice of the Year 2015
I have always believed that the best time to hire a coach is when you are at the top of your game. Athletes are coached throughout their careers to ensure they reach their greatest potential. My team and I work to make the playoffs each and every day. Any small error creates a snowball effect that translates into patient dissatisfaction and my bottom line. Our team would not be complete without a coach. I used Scott eight years ago and again in 2015. He is a systems genius who has organizational skills and the follow through that parallels any dentist I know. He has been able to keep my practice running smoothly so we can meet our patient's expectations, remain calm and enjoy the profitability of practicing dentistry.
