Monthly, One-on-One Coaching Calls

Practice Analysis & Ongoing Support

In order to truly understand your practice, we need to know the numbers - how many new patients are you seeing? What are your cancellations like? What percentage of your patients are using insurance? By learning these numbers and working to move them in the directions you want, we can help you achieve your unique career goals as quickly and efficiently as possible.

On-Site Training Programs

That’s right, we’re happy to come to you! Talking about doing things differently at your practice is one thing… it’s completely different for one of our coaches or trainers to actually work with your team in the environment you practice in every day.

Camaraderie of Likeminded Dentists

Each of our dentist-coaches is just like you, as in they want to constantly do better as both a clinician and business person. Being able to talk to experienced dentists who have been there and done that can not only be tremendously informative, but motivating as well.

But, in addition to that, you’ll also be able to reach out to the rest of our coaching team as well. Each of them has a unique perspective on the dental industry and an expertise you won’t find anywhere else, and we want every one of our partner dentists to benefit from them!

Training, Coaching, & Community

Dr. Phelps can deeply empathize with the dentists he coaches and trains because he has walked many, many miles in their shoes. He knows the struggles of having to balance being a successful clinician as well as asavvy marketer in today’s world where patients have more information and options than ever before. Getting the right type of patient through the door, having them accept a treatment plan, and reliably growing your business requires several skills, and often ones that aren’t taught in dental school.After investing hundreds of thousands of dollars learning from true experts in business such as Dan Sullivan, Kathy Kolbe, Robert Cialdini and Dr. Anthony Feck, Dr. Phelps was able to find what works, not just for him, but for anyone hoping to grow and thrive as a dentist.

What We Do

The Successful Start-Up
Practice From Start To Finish

Whether it’s your first practice or your tenth, starting a new practice is a major undertaking that requires thorough planning and meticulous execution. The learning curve from early beginnings to successful achievement can involve years and hundreds of thousands of dollars. That’s what The Successful Start-Up Practice From Start To Finish was designed to do: flatten the learning curve and save clients valuable time and money – lots of it.

The Successful Start-Up Practice From Start To Finish addresses every aspect, including if, when, where, and how to start a new practice. The keys to success are no secret – great systems implemented by a great team in the presence of great leadership. The coaching begins with an assessment of the potential, a description of needs, and an evaluation of practice location. It continues with practice budget, office design, business plan, staffing, implementation, and follow-up.

The best coaches are practicing dentists who have demonstrated excellence in accomplishing themselves what they are coaching others to do. Dr. Amy Creech- Gionis was selected to lead this service arm of Sunrise Dental Solutions because of her own experience in building three practices from scratch into thriving businesses.

Practice Growth & Prosperity Through Guestology - The Patient-Centered Practice

The reasons a patient chooses a dentist are numerous, but the reasons that patients stay with a dentist, recommend one, and refer others to them most often involves the way they feel when they visit that dental office. If today’s consumer has the typical patient experience, then they will respond like a typical consumer, making their buying decisions based on expense, convenience, and the perceived hierarchy on their “want list.”

Guestology is the study of how to take care of guests. People who are treated as guests have an experience that goes beyond their clinical care. They are treated as family, and the practice becomes an extension of their family. The results are a place where price becomes irrelevant and the focus is on being the best part of a guest’s day instead of selling the patient what they need. Amazingly, profits increase as stress decreases.

Dr. Gary Imm has created GuestWise™, a team training process that takes just 10 minutes a day to create world-class guest experiences. It is fun and meaningful for the team and contains little to no cost to the practice. Teams using the system find guests can’t wait to come back, thus increasing their profits and the culture of the office as they focus on relationships instead of selling.

Next Level Production - The Ultimate Off-Site, In-Office Learning Experience

You’ve heard it said before: “If you want different results, do things differently.”

When it comes to running a successful dental practice, there are many who can tell you what to do differently, but few who will show you how. Sunrise Dental Solutions has developed the Ultimate Off-Site, In-Office Learning Experience. This is a one-of-a-kind event designed for the doctor and the team to see first-hand how an incredibly productive and profitable practice works by blending a culture of teamwork, leadership, and proven systems to create the efficient delivery of high level patient care.

An excellent example of outstanding practice profitability through outstanding teams implementing outstanding systems in the presence of outstanding leadership is the practice of Dr. John Phillips in Oklahoma, which is the site for this training. Dr. Phillips is quick to point out that all of these ingredients are within reach of any practice trained in and committed to their implementation.

The experience starts, prior to your visit, with a meeting between you and Dr. Phillips, where you will discover the goals of the event for you and your team. On the day of the visit, you’ll experience everything from the morning meeting to the end of the day. In-between, you and your team leaders will meet with respective members of the host practice to discuss the why’s and how’s of their highly productive daily schedule. After a full day, you’ll meet with Dr. Phillips, during which you’ll formulate a plan to take back to your office. The experience will be capped off with a follow-up meeting a month later.

The Master Series - Webinars
For The Success-Driven Dentist

“Success-Driven” dentists are defined by their efforts to conquer the challenges most other dentists will not, no matter the cost in terms of time, expense, effort, comfort, or risk. This unquenchable drive applies to the pursuit of knowledge as well. These dentists realize that only through learning can they change, and only through change can they grow. They also realize that just as important as the pursuit of knowledge is choosing what to learn and who to learn from.

The Master Series of webinars was created with the Success-Driven dentist in mind. Unlike many so-called “educational” webinars marketed to dentists, the Master Series is not a sales webinar that happens to have a guest speaker, but a truly educational event hosted by another Success-Driven dentist, Dr. Matt VanderMolen, on timely topics. It also features guest presenters selected for their mastery of the chosen topic.

Assistance and Guidance to Optimal Dental Practice Transitions

It isn’t hard to build a case for every dentist having a well thought out exit strategy. That way, decision-making throughout their career will be shaped by that plan, in order for the outcome to best match their vision. Still, many dentists don’t have a clearly defined vision for their exit until they are ready to retire.

Whether that process is a walkaway sale, a sale to an associate who has become a partner, or some variation, exit strategies come in many forms. Within the last decade, more and more private practices have sold to dental service organizations (DSOs), with the former owner working as an employee of the DSO for a defined period of time afterwards. All of these strategies come with advantages and disadvantages, leaving the would-be seller to weigh the benefits of each.

The best strategies aren’t just about retirement, but a transition that positions the owner for an enjoyable and profitable final phase of their career where retirement is only a portion of the process. Optimal Dental Transitions with Dr. Navid Hadian is designed to take the confusion and stress out of deciding when and how to transition your dental career, identifying choices and making sense of them, preparing for and evaluating offers, and supporting you through the whole process from beginning to implementation.

Success with Multiple Practice Ownership

Thinking of adding an additional location? This makes sense if your aim is to leverage your time and efforts, multiply production and income by a factor of the number of added operatories, take advantage of additional markets, add capacity when existing capacity is full, or just grow your group practice, all of which sounds great to the entrepreneurial-minded dentist owner. But is it as simple as finding another site and starting a practice just like your existing one?

Anyone who has done it will tell you “no” – there’s more to it than that. And anyone who has done it will tell you something else – they learned a lot during the process about how NOT to do it. Sunrise Dental Solutions was founded on the concept that successful practicing dentists should be coaching other dentists who want to learn from colleagues who have excelled at what they are seeking to do. That way, you know not only what to do, but what not to do before learning it the hard way. That saves you money, and the most valuable asset of all – time.

Dr. Steffany Mohan knows the business of multiple practice ownership inside and out. She knows the key leadership traits necessary from both the owner and the team. She understands how essential good communication systems are to the success of the venture. She understands how to select locations, choose doctors and team members, obtain financing, incorporate efficient systems, and how to make it all profitable. She knows how important being the super GP is, and how to make that happen. In short, Dr. Mohan is the coach for the owner who has or desires to have multiple practice locations.

From Team Leaders to the
Chief Operating Officer

Great results in any business venture, including a dental practice is simply this – A Great Team, Implementing Great Systems, in the presence of Great Leadership. Often, the dental practice owner attempts to manage all three of these components while practicing dentistry all at the same time – a formidable task often not performed well. Practice growth in such situations is limited and accompanied by mounting stress, as the limitations of time and ability take their inevitable toll on all involved.

In order to be a productive dentist providing the best possible care for their patients, and lead a cohesive team performing their roles at a high level, management and leadership responsibilities must be shared with capable team leaders who are accountable for the success of their respective departments. This allows for unencumbered, smooth practice growth. As the practice grows larger, a Practice Manager is needed to lead the team leaders. Finally, for the group practice producing at high levels or one with multiple locations, a Chief Operating Officer (COO) is needed to oversee day-to-day operations.

Sunrise Dental Solutions provides all aspects of training and support for doctors and their Team Leaders, Practice Manager, and COO, in the form of Ultimate Team Management & Leadership, covering everything from analysis of need, to recruitment, to onsite training, to implementation, to ongoing coaching for both doctors and team members. For such comprehensive training to deliver on the promise to exceed each doctor’s expectations in this area, it must be delivered by someone who has not only proven themselves as an educator, but also as a successful COO themselves.
