Dental Coaching, All-Star Dental Academy

I can’t say enough about how gifted All-Star Coaches are. They all have deep experience with the day-to-day challenges of running a practice and insight into the unique issues around running a fee-for-service practice. Their true gift, however, is how they are able to connect with the team and speak to them in a way they truly understand and get excited about All-Star’s message. 

-Dr. Al

Dental Coaching, All-Star Dental Academy

I have absolutely loved working with All-Star for practice coaching. They have really helped me to iron out the wrinkles in my practice in order to break through the plateau that had plagued me for quite some time. We have seen a 40% increase in production/collections since we started working with All-Star, and we have been able to drop insurance plans. I highly recommend them!

– Dr. Cody

Dental Coaching, All-Star Dental Academy

My team grew weary and skeptical of practice consultants but they view All-Star’s coaching differently. Rather than feeding us a predetermined curriculum, the All-Star coaches have come alongside us and helped us identify, address, and ultimately solve our bottlenecks and pain points.  Their insight and experience has been immensely valuable in solving issues that previously lingered for years.

What’s Troubling YOU?

Implementation, All-Star Dental Academy


I have trouble implementing new training, and when I do it is difficult to hold my team accountable, not to mention I get resistance. Help!”

Profit, All-Star Dental Academy


I work hard, but sometimes feel I have little or nothing to show for it at the end of the day. I feel like I’m always putting out fires. I’m not as profitable as I should be.”

Practice Numbers

I wish I knew my practice numbers better and how to use them to improve my business and have it run more efficiently, so I can enjoy my life.”

About Dental Coaching & Dental Consulting

Let’s face it, implementing change with dental teams is not an easy task. Whether you are too busy to train your team, or just not fond of getting the team to do the work, using a coach will help new concepts “stick” and guide your team to develop master-level customer service skills and organization in the fastest way possible. Dental coaching brings specialized knowledge to your business, a unique perspective, and helps spot “gaps” that you may not see. Executive dental consulting research has shown coaching to provide a benefit of 500-700% ROI, and that’s precisely what we see with our clients.
