What Is a Dental Coach?

A dental coach is typically someone who has worked many years in the dental industry, both as a dentist and as a practice owner. These coaches will then take that experience and train and mentor other dentists to grow, scale, and sustain their own practices. Dental coaches understand that much more goes into starting and growing a successful dental practice. 

There are marketing, hiring practices, patient experience, systems, and employee engagement to consider beyond the financial side of things. In addition, each dental coach has their own areas of expertise, years of experience, and education, so it’s important to find a dental coach who is the right fit for you.

There are several reasons to hire a dental coach, depending on where you are in your journey. You might be a new dentist, fresh out of dental school, looking to develop a resume, make professional connections, and perhaps looking for your first job. You might also be further in your career, established as a dentist, or looking to start your first practice. Sometimes a dentist who currently owns a practice might hire a dental coach to help them scale and grow their business or even sell it. 

Reasons to Hire a Dental Coach 


  • You are a new dentist just starting your career
  • You are an established dentist ready to open your own practice 
  • You have a dental practice and want to scale your business
  • You own a dental practice and want to sell 
  • You want to establish more sustainable systems in your practice
  • You want to create a stronger team that is more engaged.

While there can be other reasons to hire a dental coach, these tend to be the most common reasons why a coach can be beneficial.
