Life Coaching for Dentists, the tooth!

More Patients, more Money

You want a better quality of life, and you want to see results quickly. So why would a dentist need a life coach?

The simple answer is to not just love your practice again but also love your life again.

This involves everything from leading your team to doing the technical parts of dentistry that you have been trained to do, to make more money.

And for you to be a business owner who loves owning a dental practice.

Let me ask you...

As a dental practice owner, do you have an off switch?

While we may be coming to the end of pandemic and lockdown restrictions changing, many dentists have reported increased levels of anxiety, loneliness, panic, wanting to leave or just simply wondering; why are they a dentist in the first place?

Through my work with high-level entrepreneurs, including dentists, I've noticed several patterns:

  1. Imposter syndromeWho am I to be charging higher rates? Who am I to be growing a dental practice at a young age?
  2. Big Questions - Do I want to do this for the next 20/30/40/50 years of my life.
  3. CatastrophisingMaking every molehill into a mountain, so much so the catastrophes become an enact the fight, flight or freeze response.

There is an internal mastery at work here in terms of being a dentist, and there is a real business-related focus to being a dental practice owner.

The Business of Dentistry

During your dental training, business skills were not the focus, of course, dentistry was. However, when you started running a dental practice, the business of dentistry soon overtook the passion that you had for actual dentistry.

Ask yourself this question, do you know why you still want to run and own a dental practice if we put money aside?

Financial Planning for Dentistry

Many dentists are small business owners and it's incredibly common to fall into the trap of lacking any goals or direction with your finances in your practice.

The practices can become very reactive, and especially susceptible during times such as a pandemic. If you do not achieve financial stability in your practice, this can increase your anxiety levels.

Building Lasting Patient Relationships as a Dentist

As with any other business, recurring customers or patients are the backbones to give your business stability.

In medicine, these are even more critical. However, the pandemic, changing attitudes and consumer behaviour means that people are no longer loyal to their dentist.

Contributing to patient churn:

  • Cost can be a contributing factor to the length and lifetime value of a client.
  • The experience within the practice can influence the lifetime value of a client.
  • The duration of booking time for patients can also be a catalyst to changing dentist.

Not enough time for you as a dentist

Whether you're just starting as a dentist, you're newly qualified or you're seeking to grow your practice, your professional goals as a dentist likely compete with your ones as an individual.

You may work longer hours to feel that you're making progress which can take a huge toll on your personal life. You may be craving a healthy work-life balance. You may be using external coping mechanisms such as alcohol and pharmaceuticals for you to function continually at this high level.

But you want more, don't you?

You started to question whether this is all that is in your life for the next 20, 30 or 40 years.

I know from clients in the dentistry field and other high-level executives and entrepreneurs that a desirable work-life balance is achievable.

I work with my clients in a variety of disciplines.

We look at your values as they relate to your business and your personal life. We rebalance your health, recalibrate your mindset for success

And we build a business and a life that you love.
