for Dental and specialist practices

Explore how a personalised Treatment Plan can revolutionise your dental practice's success. My approach to Treatment Plans commences with a comprehensive diagnostic review, incorporating in-house observations, consultations, and detailed analysis of your Practice Management System statistics. I also conduct a thorough SWOT, competitor, and PESTLE analysis and assess business effectiveness across critical areas within your organisation.

I delve into your area's vital economic and demographic statistics to holistically understand your practice's environment. This analysis provides invaluable insights into your town's current and future trajectory, enabling me to tailor recommendations that align precisely with the evolving landscape.

These efforts culminate in a strategic roadmap outlining actionable strategies for optimising your practice's business operations and enhancing its overall success. Implementing these recommendations addresses identified areas for improvement and positions your practice for sustainable growth in the future.


I will work closely with you and your manager/team for approximately 12 months, ensuring your progress is monitored and successfully implemented. I aim to empower you and your team to establish systems tailored to your practice, standardising and customising based on your vision.

  • Can you provide examples of successful improvements or changes you've implemented in other dental practices?
    My history is defined by driving growth in healthcare practices through strategic policies, systems, and procedures relating to patient experience and treatment conversions. Leveraging these very methods, I expanded and effectively managed the practices I owned and managed. I co-founded a dental practice, steering it to a profitable sale in 2015, and managed the remarkable growth and accreditation of a medical startup and an orthodontic practice whose income increased fourfold whilst I was there and continues to grow through systems I established.

For your peace of mind, I offer a 30-day cancellation option.

Step 2: Customised Growth Plan Armed with insights, we create personalised strategies that directly address your pain points, ensuring measurable results. Our goal is to help your practice thrive uniquely.

My B.Com degree from Curtin University and eight years in banking and finance management have honed my analytical and strategic skills. This background, combined with over two decades of experience in the dental and medical fields, empowers me to incorporate the latest technologies and treatment methods. This ensures that the solutions I recommend are not only effective but also informed by the latest developments in the dental industry.
  • How can your experience in healthcare centres, dentistry, and finance benefit my practice?
    My multifaceted background uniquely positions me to drive success in dental practices. With over two decades in the dental and medical fields, I've successfully navigated the intricacies of these industries, consistently adopting the latest advancements. Additionally, my eight years in banking and finance management equip me with a strategic perspective that enhances financial sustainability.
