Services we provide

Helping you implement plans and strategies

The first and most important service we provide is strategy. We make and implement plans, but none of that matters if your strategy isn’t right. Strategy must come first.

HOW WE CAN HELP

All our work is based on the three steps that Richard Rumelt talks about. He’s professor of business and society at the University of California and we like his thinking because it aligns with what we’ve found to be the case in practise.

In other words: Where are you? Where do you want to go? How do you make it happen? We spend a lot of time asking dentists these questions and the answers are always different. Of course they are because people are different, premises are different and market catchments are different.

We therefore never recommend any of our until we understand where you are and what your objectives and strategy are. Then we may recommend a mixture of services across three areas: accountancy, marketing and wealth strategy.

Our INSIGHT

“There’s relatively little written about how to make it [speed] a serious operational advantage, but we know it doesn’t come naturally. It’s a discipline, a skill, and making faster decisions is uncomfortable. Dental practice owners struggle in this area, so much so that it often wreaks havoc in their business and personal lives. There are three reasons.

1. Dentists seek perfection. They’ve been raised on evidence-based training and always prefer to seek more information than make a decision — known as analysis paralysis.

2. They tend to be risk averse, also thanks to their clinical training. Taking risks is against their nature, and you can’t make good quality decisions unless you can accurately assess and mitigate risk.

3. Running a practice can be a lonely position. Practice owners carry a heavy load yet struggle to delegate, and can suddenly feel overwhelmed.”
