Success Stories | What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

"Saved Me $80k On Equipment And Another $80k On The Contractor. That's Got To Be The Best And Quickest ROI I'll Ever See."

"Ideal practices has been my partner in this from day one. Financing during COVID was a pain but when banks refused to lend to me, Kyle led me through all the roadblocks and I ended up with great terms and was fully funded.

Steve Burns probably saved me $80k on equipment and another $80k on the contractor. That's got to be the best and quickest ROI I'll ever see."

Dr. Danny

"Ideal Practice has this process down. They have the best team members for each part of the process. Since opening we will have seen 346 new patients. This is with only being open 4 days a week, we’ve seen our numbers increase from $28 k in May to $93k in August. Ideal Practice has helped me realize my dream of being a small business owner".


Dr. Bryan

"You know we’ve seen 200 patients and we’ve been open 2 months. I know so much of that has to do with all the work that went into making this place feel special, look special. You know when you come in it doesn’t feel like a dental office. We’ve had incredible online reviews already talking about, ‘you are going to enjoy coming to our dental office".


Dr. Nadya

“I knew I wanted to create my own practice. I didn’t know where to start. Working with Ideal Practices is really customized to your needs. We have been booked since the first day. Now I have time and financial freedom. I’m stronger, more confident, and a much happier dentist and so grateful for everything Ideal Practices has done".

Rural startups. City startups. General dentistry, large practices, boutique practices, pediatric, orthodontic, prosthodontic, endodontic, oral surgery. You name it, we’ve done it

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help me with marketing?

Yes! We know that the key to any successful practice is getting patients in the door. Marketing is a big part of our 13 Stage Process. In fact throughout the 12 months you spend with us you'll be working on the profitability of your practice for 5+ months.

We will teach you how other startup dentists have developed marketing strategies to open with new patients on day 1.

However, we don't work with dentists who only need marketing training. A successful dental practice is built on the foundations of our 13 stages. We lead you through the entire process to launch a successful startup dental practice.

How do I know the investment to work with Ideal Practices is worth it?

We have saved many dentists much more than our fee in just equipment costs alone.

But don’t take our word for it, read through our client reviews and case studies here.

I only want demographics research...can you do that?

Relying on demographic reports without strategic research is often times the reason behind a slow growing startup practice.  Great and effective demographic research goes far beyond just looking at numbers and ratios.  We have an in-house team for our demographics research lead by Stephen Trutter and Mike Gharib.

With that being said, we don't work with dentists who only want a demographic report. A successful dental practice is built on the foundations of our entire 13 stages. We will lead you through the entire process to launch a successful startup dental practice.  The decisions you make from the beginning in correct demographics for your situation, vision and growth will have direct correlation to the decisions you will need to make as you move forward in your journey towards a profitable and successful startup dental practice.
Is there consulting after I have opened up my practice?

The Mastery Elite community is a 2 year-long program exclusively for select Ideal Practices clients.

This group is a prestigious community of startup dentists studying the best ways to serve their communities, increase profits, improve systems, support your wins and lean on each other through the challenges.
​The intimate nature of the group creates a trusted network of practice owners who have been where you are now as well as Faculty advisors and Startup MBA Advisors who guide you though your first year of ownership and beyond.
From bi-annual retreats, monthly meetings, continued education and a faculty-led virtual community, we are with you through every step of your startup journey.
I have my space, can I hire John as my floorplan designer?

John Malone is our amazing designer (he's designed over 4,000 dental practices after all). I am not surprised you would want to work with him!

However, his service is part of our 13 Stages Service and is not available as a standalone service.

Do you help with lease negotiation?

Yes! We are here to help you negotiate leases, real estate, financing, equipment, etc…. But only as part of our core 13 Stages Service. We do not offer any services as standalone services.

I'm in the middle of construction. How can you help me?

Unfortunately, you are probably too far along. We believe that in order to help build the most successful practices, everything about the startup process begins with vision. Do not sign a lease, start construction, or choose a site before scheduling a consultation call with our team.

How are you different from other startup consultants?
Where do I even start?!

1. Not only do we help open more startups than *anyone* in dentistry, every single startup is 100% customized and unique because you, the vision you have for your future and how you want to practice dentistry is unique. And just like you, the Ideal Practice's vision, methodology and team are all unique too.
No cookie cutter business plans here. No templates to download. No vendor kickbacks - ever. That means the recommendations we make for you are truly in your best interest. 
2. We are a complete (and growing) team of 17 dental experts who specialize in one specific thing: dental startups. Our elite team of Dental Startup Consultants have opened over 3,000 successful dental practices across the country.
