My Practice Matters ™ cares about the present and future of independent dentistry – the practitioners and patients.  We believe that dental professionals and the public deserve the right to make informed choices, now and in the future.

If you are a dentist who:
  • enjoys the clinical side of dentistry,
  • has a patient-centred philosophy, and
  • is concerned about the paradigm shift in control of the profession, and how this shift will affect your practice (short and long term), and rights of the public to choose

…you have arrived at the right place!  Opportunity exists for independent practitioners to successfully compete, achieve their goals, and ensure the future for independent practice, no matter what the market conditions.

 The My Practice Matters ™ Solution

After researching, compiling, and analyzing data and information from a multitude of sources, the My Practice Matters™ solution to empower and support independent practice was developed. This solution is a three-pronged approach that includes education, tools, training, and support for independent practitioners which, when applied, give you the advantage needed to compete in any market conditions.  Our solution is to strengthen weaknesses, and optimize your strengths so that dentists are resilient through all market conditions.
  1. The not-so-secret secret is the behavioral element of dentistry.  Unfortunately, the “soft skills” that build trust and respect between people is not taught in dental school, and there are few resources available after graduation.  The good news is that it can be learned and once dentists understand the benefits of behavioral dentistry, they are eager to adopt it into their practice.
  2. The business aspect involves utilization of practice management tools that may already be available through your existing software, but aren’t because no one in the dental team understand how to extract and analyze the data. We can provide simple and effective ways to set up, track, and analyse  KPI, and advanced patient management tools to ensure predictable and sustainable performance.
  3. Tools and training to build a strong and resilient dental team, and establish a culture of collaboration in a safe and enjoyable environment.
