Group practices: You have a vision.
You have a burning desire to create, lead, and manage a substantial managed group practice. But you lack real corporate experience and knowledge. All you have is grit and tenacity, but you’re still willing to push forward. You are the new breed of dentist-entrepreneur: highly intentional and driven by courage and commitment.
But you have one problem: You've never done this before. You've never built a large organization with dozens of employees, many associates, an executive team, or a long-term mission and core values.
Where do you go to turn your vision into reality?
The DEO is an organized peer-to-peer network of dentist-entrepreneurs, where committed dentist-entrepreneurs can interact and continue to grow and learn as business professionals. The DEO is a place where dentists are genuinely interested in each other’s success — they share openly, and they support each other through the process of growing a managed group practice.
Learn how to add locations, attract associates, & build a great business.
As you scale, you’ll also need access some fundamental knowledge. You’ll need to know how to find practices or locations to acquire, how to set up associate compensation models, how to develop a culture, and the basic tenets of building a great company. The DEO will give you access to these elements and more.
Be part of a community of like-minded, successful group practice owners.
They say it’s lonely at the top — and we know it can also be lonely on the way to the top. But it doesn’t have to be. For dentists embarking on their entrepreneur journey, the DEO provides a strong community of growth-minded dentists, including general practice and all specialities (periodontic, orthodontic, endodontic, surgeons) — moving forward together.
